OK here she is. A combination of old and new...

I had a spare Stag complete lower laying around. Slapped on a MMG and picked up a sweet 20" Factory Bushmaster upper from a fellow Calgunner. Seller was even kind enough to throw a Levang muzzle brake on there for me. So, here she is, in all her standard capacity, bullet button-less glory. No optics, quad rails, lights, lasers, or other ninja gear. Just a plain iron sighted beast like the one Uncle Sam let me use for a few years. Range report to follow as soon as I get her out to the range.

Nice. How is the weight balance? Mine is a little heavy toward the front, going to get a lead weight from Brownells to insert into the stock and balance it out.

Lorax you are right on the money. The Bushmaster upper is fairly heavy. The rifle is definitely not as nimble as a stripped down M4 but it feels really good. The balance overall feels fine, she is just a tank in general.

I'd try the CG marketplace first for the MMG. Otherwise I know Riflegear and a few other EBR vendors sell them. They install like a regular grip but sometimes need to be sanded down a bit to slide onto the lower. Once you get used to shooting with them they are great.

Isnt that technically a A4 lookalike since it has the detachable carry handle? Just saying, looks good regardless.

Nice rifle. Enjoy dropping your mags with a finger like a free man.

Nice rifle. An ambidextrous selector switch makes the MMG even more functional to use, BTW.

Yes! Definitely get the ambi safety.

Yes, totally agree with Iskra and SuperSet. Ambidextrous switch is a necessity with MMG AR's.

That's a very hot A2 clone you got there! I'm glad to see more people jump on the MMG bandwagon :D

Here's mine:

Enjoy your new featureless! Almost all the benefits of a "free" state gun, while still in CA!

Hey, that's a very tasteful looking featureless.

However, its not really an A2, I also agree with the others that you might need the ambi safety.

loosewreck is technically correct here, the rifle that Bobby built has a flat-top with detachable carry handle, more akin to an M-16a4, so it's more of an A4 build. For people that like to be technical.

I stand corrected that it is an A4 build. In all reality I don't need an ambi safety because I am a lefty. That original right handed safety provides a nice thumbrest for me. For a righty the ambi is a must though.

The funny thing is that I have gotten so used to featureless that when I pick up a regularly configured AR at work I still subconsciously forget to wrap my thumb around the grip and hold it like a featurless rifle. Go figure....
