      October qualifications came and went. I fear the same will happen with qualifications in May, and maybe again for qualifications in October 2010.

      For now I'm stuck with a lower and this thing http://www.innovativetactical.com/ca.../7r96e5m03.jpg to patrol with.
      Just a suggestion, Cancel the CMMG and order the BCM mid length directly from Bravo USA. $570.00 with BCG and CH. You will have to get hand guards which the plastic Mid length are 19.95. They are in stock now and they usually ship in a day or two. http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCM-1...urg-mid-16.htm

        • Ok, I went with Brad's suggestion (thank you sir) and ordered the BCM mid length with BCG and CH, plus a rear sight. It's only $24 more than my order with CMMG, which just received my cancellation email. I'll post pics when I get it all together.

            Ha..No. I'm just a dirt road deputy. I knew very, very little about the AR this time last year. Ordered the CMMG Mid Length upper and got ready to wait. While waiting I found M4Carbine.Net and started reading post's on that site and along with this thread learned a lot. I was able to snag a BCM Mid Length upper during the frenzy and have done most of my AR business with them since that time. They offer, what most pro's consider(myself not being a pro), a top tier AR. Not to mention their excellent customer service and quick shipping time.
            I just try to offer that suggestion when some one is in the market and looking for a quality AR.

                • I love my wife.

                  My wife couldn't keep it a secret until Christmas and gave me my present last night. Rock River A4, carbine length gas system with quad-rail forward handguard, chrome-lined 1/9 barrel.

                  and no, she doesn't have any sisters.

                  The first thing I need is a rear sight, and I"m trying to decide between the Larue Tactical Fixed Iron Sight & the Troy folding BUIS. Any thoughts about these sights, or suggestions about other options I should consider are appreciated.

                  I think I've decided on the VCAS sling from Blue Force Gear.

                  • Daniel Defense now sells a fixed rear sight that is very good, and costs less than the LaRue BUIS. I would recommend you look at that.

                      • Decided on the Troy Rear Folding Battle Sight because I found it on sale at http://weaponparts.storesecured.com/ for $89. I also picked up a Blue Force Gear padded Vickers sling for $44, and P-Mags are on sale for $12.95 each. Some other good deals here from what I can tell, and they are matching the factory cashback on EOTech products.

                            Thats the deal I just got after reading the first few pages. After I made my purchase I decided to read more of the thread and I'm now apprehensive about my purchase. What do you guys think? Did I get a good deal? Anything glaring shortcomings immediately on my purchase? I thought I was informed but am now afraid I may have rushed my purchase on recommendations from a few years ago...
