Default Thoughts on light weight rifle with hammerhead grip?

The lightweight bug bit me after reading on some! But I'm not sure I want do break the bank with anything.
Goals are mainly cool factor, and that youth can be trained on it with a cmmg conversion.

I was thinking of doing an upper and buffer system from them if i could get it by itself.

Maybe going with a hammerhead to make it featureless. I'd like the FRS15 but i'd think it would add too much weight. Are there other grips out there i'm not considering? I don't really like the grip wraps.

Any suggestions on BCG or Skeletonized lower?

I converted mine to hammerhead grip and muzzle break and pinned my m4gery stock. This is 458socom and 5.56 ar-15.

Hammerhead grip is annoying but usable.

Thorsen stock. To me, it is the most natural as far as grip/stock retrofits for featureless. If .22lr wasn't in the mix, I would suggest a flightlite Monte Carlo lower.

Consider the Liberal Grip from Featureless Arms, on my AR below. It's lightweight, and handles well. Only complaint is I can't reach the safety with my thumb, but manipulate it with my pointer instead.

Looks like a Wolf upper. The imported Taiwanese piston upper, the T91 iirc.

How you like it so far?

Is it still hard to activate even though you're already using a 60 degree short throw safety?

+1 for 'the liberal'
Mine is not a lightweight build, but it's a great grip. I added grip tape to mine. (stock is fixed)

I can't reach the safety either. Using an ambi safety, like most featureless grips will need.

My 14.5" house rifle is featureless with a Hammerhead and an Aimpoint C03 red dot. With lightweight parts it's under 5 lbs. and nimble.

I used a Daniel Defense lightweight barrel and a JD Machine upper, fits nice and tight to an Aero lower. Too bad JD is gone now.
