For Christmas, I got to convert my black gun to Dark Earth with Magpul from to back! That old 1.5x Weaver is working out just great for our tactical carbine matches. Still looking for what sling I want to get.

Regarding the sling, its so light and easy to carry, I haven't really missed not having one installed. Of course that will change if I harvest a deer that is big enough to need both hands to drag it out.

You know I've been looking at how much it would cost for a AR in 6.8SPCII to be built (ie I buy the parts then try to assemble it). Smile

I never realized how expensive AR parts can add up to. I ended up deciding on what I'd like and I ended up with around 1,471$ as a price tag for the parts (US suppliers would need to pay for export fees ontop of that). Switching the handgaurd type (to the new MagPul MOE Mid-Length) and a 18" MidLenght White Oak barrel ended up totaling 1,565$. Now I'll admit, it is other then the barrel and handgaurd dressed up as a NM gun like RRA's using the RRA NM carry handle, trigger and front sight. But I was surprised to see how expensive these things can be, and thats not including a railed handgaurd and the like which are popular.

Shocked

Dimitri

I think I've mentioned on here before that a friend told me that ARs were "the LEGO set for firearms".
