    MistWolf,

    What is that gear box in the back of your vehicle?

    Go to rifle is a bit of an odd one...not because the gun itself is odd, but because the way it is set up...or more corectly isn't set up.
    An iron sighted carbine (BCM lightweight on a Rock River upper with BCM receiver extension) with a rattlecan paint job and Magpul SL handguards that were mangled in an ill-conceived experiment. It really shouldn't be my Go To rifle because I have another AR equipped with an Aimpoint, but the light weight and portability of this one ends up making it the one I'm most apt to grab and toss in the jeep, or to have in hand when I completely overreact to an odd noise in the basement at 1:00am. Usually the gun has a 20 rounder in it, when traveling I usually keep four 30 rounders in an S.O Tech bandolier on hand as well. At some point I'll probably come to grips with the fact it needs an optic and stick my spare Aimpoint PRO on it. In any case, it's probably my current "Go To".
    Picture is nothing special as I just took it to serve as a visual aid rather than look good.
    Great taste. I, too, like CAR stocks and fixed irons.

    I can't carry every day, due to my employer(s), but my go-to pistol is now a Beretta PX4 fullsize in 9mm, with "G" and "D" conversions. Its new, but I now have enough rounds through it to trust it (1000). Holster is a High Noon Stingray in horsehide.

    Goto gear is an AWS plate carrier that mimics the setup I had last time I carried a rifle for a living, except the Eagle and Paraclete flap pouches have been replaced with 4 Tacos. Camelback, tourniquet, flex cuffs, remote antenna, plates, soft armor, SAM splint, Halo seal, etc. all same. IFAK on belt, 8 o'clock. High cut helmet with rattle can camo. The odds of me actually using this stuff again is super slim, but seeing it in the corner of a room is comforting for some reason. It still gets used in training pretty frequently.

    Primary goto rifle is assembled around a 14.5 in Noveske barrel with a 12" DD RIS and ALG ACT trigger. Laundry bag/rattle can camo. It's wearing a Leopold 2-7 scope and offset irons that I put on for hunting and competition in 2015, and subsequently misplaced the fixed iron sights that were on it before. I've been debating new irons vs Nightforce 1-4. No rush. Blue Force sling with metal Cobra. It also has a Inforce WML. Not as beefy as a Surefire or Elzetta, but I really like the tailcap.

    This rifle just got a few parts replaced and must be re-vetted, so right now my bedside gun is my Saiga 74. The mag and grip have been converted, but I left the long handguard on it and stipled it. USGI M16 sling with ghetto-fabbed mounting points. Comblock length wooden stock, rattle can paint job. Its a beater gun. Looks like a real POS, but it shoots, and reliably.

    Thanks, the gun now has an Aimpoint on it that has been rattle-canned to match the gun. Otherwise it's still set up the same. However I'm expecting to receive BCM carbine-length PKMR handguard and a BCM foregrip on Monday, so those will be going on the gun once they've been appropriately rattle-canned as well.

    Did you get them yet? If so, how are you liking them?
    Stick


    I have been asked to point out by board policy that I am Magpul's photographer. I have also done work for 150 or so manufacturers within the firearm community, my work has been used for web, catalog, banners, magazines, covers, etc. I have also shot work for the US Military where it has been used in training aids. I am prior service and a full time LEO.

    I also shoot and write for various publications. My primary focus is weapons, accessories and related equipment reviews. Manufacturers can reach me through any of the boards. If you have something new, let me know.

    I like them a lot, they are about everything I could want in a polymer handguard. I like that they are slimmer than even Magpul's "SL" handguards, and also unlike the SLs allow you to retain the factory front sling swivel right from the get go (Which I still use). I suppose if I could change anything about them I'd make them M-Lok instead but I really don't hang enough stuff off the front of my ARs to really care too much about the specific type of accessory attachment system I'm using.



    I've also got a midlength set of PKMRs. This gun also now sports a BCM vertical foregrip, however because I shoot this gun from a rest a lot the foregrip *may* end up getting removed, but I wanted to at least try the VFG on it.
