Thanks for the replies. There is a local guy who has the ACS, unused, for $100. I am going to go that route. I would still prefer the SOPMOD, since I am a little over the top when it comes to military issue stuff, but not $100 more over the top. Besides that, with the money I will be saving on the stock will allow me to buy the last piece to my build, DD handguard rails. Oh, wait, I still need a flash hider.
Sucks about the beard thing always being a problem.
My build/frankenrifle, 6 months in the making, consists of the following:
- Stag Lower and parts kit
- Vltor Mur Upper
- Magpul Grip
- Noveske 16 inch barrel
- BCM F/A BCG
- a bunch of Magpul Mags
- Troy Folding front an rear sights
Still need Daniel Defense rails. Will probably go with 12 inch Lite
Still need flash hider
Still need a red dot sight, will probably go with an Eotech
Dang, I still need to come up with about $800 to finish my rifle
Then I will need to find a professional to assemble my build. I have no idea of who to go to in Ohio. About two months ago I purchased a Colt 6920, so this build has slowed down a bit.
