Got one of these retractable key chains from work. Just another idea to comply with the law.

**EDIT**

Someone asked for a co-witness pic. My camera skills aren't very good... this is the best I can do. The camera makes it appear the front sight is clearly noticeable and obstructs the FOV. But with the actual human eye, you really don't even notice the front site. The front sight is a very, very faint shadow in the FOV due to the 4x magnification. Basically, you see right through it.

Wow!!! That's exactly what I want to build except for the forward grip. How much do you have into it, if you don't mind me asking?

Now that is a perfect tool to use with a Bullet tip Magazine Release.

Off the top of my head:

Ameetec Lower: ~$150
M4 Stock + Pad: ~$80
SDI M4 Upper 14.5" + Extended FH + Samson Rail = high ~$700s
Gas Buster Latch: ~$100
ACOG TA31F: Low $800s off Gunbroker
Tango Down Grip: $35
Forward grip: $20
Spector Sling + Sling Adaptor: $55
Mag + Mag catch: $50
KNS Pins: $30
Light + mount: $100

So about $2200.

Now what if you attached the retractable thing to the rifle so you can grab it, press the button, and let go...

troyPhD, that is one of the nicest setups I've seen! :cool:

At that point, does it cease to be a 'tool' and start to be part of the rifle?

I think common sense would say that it isn't a part of the rifle, but this is Iggy we're talking about. He'd probably testify that it was part of the rifle... Its mildly safer to not attach the tool to the rifle.

I also bought one of those .223 keychains on ebay. I'll be going by HR today to get another one of those retractable thingies.

you cheated you used a bullet key chain. I used a live 5.56 round, emptied the powder, fired the primer, seated the bullet back on, drilled a hole to attach! :)
