All AR's are mainly for looks. ;)

:oji: Wiki is your friend, OP has the carbine gas system like an M4.

Nice choice of configuration, OP. You will become much more 'at one with your rifle' using this originally-designed iron sight setup than with some type of optic. Have fun. :thumbsup:

That looks like a nice solid build. If you're like the rest of us who like making our own you're probably going to want to build a few more.

Ahh yes, the A2 stock. Massively under rated and far more attractive than the space gun stocks. Like very much. Maybe we should start an A2 and Irons club.

Looks nice bud, I prefer the a2 stock with a 20" upper, but thats just me. Before you ask, that stock is going to make a sproing sound. It's all good

Classic...Very nice. I've always loved the iron sights as well and run them on my first AR too (at least for now).
