I have been MIA on calguns for a while now. I'm back and here is my latest addition with some mods. I had my barrel chopped down and pinned a Battlecomp 2.0 making it 16.1" OAL. I finally had a chance to put the barrel on and take some pics. The pics are with the ACR enhanced and the basic handguard for comparison. I hope you like!

You could still buy one, you would have to go featureless though.

That is an awesome ACR! I like the standard handguard over the enhanced. Is it lighter too?

The full hilarity of this just hit me. Try to ban the Mag Magnet, mess up and ban bullet buttons, wind up with everyone going featureless and dropping full-cap mags. Nice.

They'll find a way to ban featureless rifles some how. Don't know how but i'm sure they will.

Don't get me wrong, I don't take SB249 lightly. I just find the disparity between the intent and the consequence amazing.

The standard handguard is noticeably lighter than the enhanced. There is also a 3rd rail option which is a skeletonized version of the enhanced but that is only available through the military.

Here is a picture of that rail which is the holy grail to an ACR owner.:drool5:

Nice job, can't even see the weld marks on the 2.0

Curious as to why you didn't go with the battlecomp 1.5 which is already drilled and designed for permanent installations?

Work of art. No a fan of the SCAR style Buttstock but that has nothing to do with usability.

I find it hilarious that people here actually think they're gonna have to go featureless and that their bullet button is going to be banned! LOL. SB249 does no such thing, make no mistake.

OP: Sick rig man. Do you feel that the balance is much more even now? Just curious if it made a difference to you other than length...

The drill / weld mark is on the 6 o'clock position of the battlecomp. I went with the battlecomp 2.0 instead of the 1.5 because of aesthetics. I didn't like the hood / crown on the 1.5. It looked like an after thought in design just to make it long enough for pre-cut barrels. Since I was getting my barrel custom done anyway I had them cut it for the Battlecomp 2.0 specifically.
