    I'll be honest, I want to "tacticool" it if I get it.

    Johnny You can basically do anything you want to the sport, change uppers, change barrels, the buffer tube is milspec, get different handguards. I bought mine for around the 600 range as mentioned by SCSU and Hitgym and I know they are going for that much in many outlets so I suggest you keep looking.

    Heres a pic of the current set up its in. (Sans VFG)

    • Substantial amount of information in a convenient thread! Bravo; I applaud your dedication!! However, the one question I have managed to pull out of here after giving up after 5 pages of replies would be why are you don't like welded on FH's? The 14.7" Barrel from CMMG with the welded on FH seems like a great compromise. All info greatly appreciated!

      • I'm not who you directed your question at, but a pinned and welded flash hider greatly limits your options later on. Removing the flash hider is required if you wanted to change the barrel nut (new rail) or gas block (low profile or front sight post). Not to mention if you just wanted to change the muzzle device. You can have the pin and weld removed, but its an added aggravation. Staying with a 16" barrel saves you a lot of headache for only a slightly longer barrel length.

        • I have a Windham Weaponry M4 rifle. Will a Colt A1 upper fit on the lower?

            Nice. I just got an M&P15 Tactical myself. Did some upgrades to it like a Hogue grip and put an angled grip on there. Will prob put a new stock on there and an EOTech when I get some money as I plan for this to be my duty AR. I've heard they are great guns from all the reviews I've read, just a bit of negative feedback here and there concerning the cost and rifling though. I also like that it has an M16 straight barrel style rather than the "bayoneted" M4 type. Some said I could have gotten another AR for about the same price ($1075 all together, about 875 pre tax on BUDsPolice) like a Colt, BCM, etc. But none of those had a quad rail, flip up sights, a Pmag, or rubber grips that came with the base option as far as I know. I'm hoping to try this baby out soon and see how it is. Will report back.

              • I think my neighbor's dog would like a taste of the 1960 Macallan. He appreciates the Jerez casks it's aged in. He likes to sniff the lower receiver on a freshly cleaned AR-15 rifle.

                  Im going to use the angled fore grip for distance shooting and the vertical grip for more up close stuff. Its hard to pivot or turn using the AFG with my arm all the way forward and extended.

                    Have you tried a hand stop? You could get rid of both those

                      Hand stop as in the thing around the magazine well? If that's what you mean, I think those are terrible lol. I'll prob just use the angled grip, but its not like the vertical grip is weighing it down any either.

                          No.. See the photo above this post. They work much better than VFG's or AFG's or whatever. Allows you to lock in and really drive the gun.

                            I prefer the AFG. Everyone has different body mechanics, but having my wrist at the angle required to use hand stops or a vanilla handguard leaves me with sore wrists after an 8 hour day at the range. I need my wrists for...stuff.

                              ^^^This. Plus I'm used to using a vertical grip or no grip at all from the military, so I'm not about to spend money on something that would give little added extra "possible" accuracy.

                                I hear ya. I use a c clamp grip (thumb on top of rail pointed towards the target) with my support hand so everything is in line. Never experienced sore wrists. That's one of the nice things with AR's, lots of gadgets to try
