The concepts behind them are great. Just curious how well they actually perform compared to the theory behind their designs. I have no reason to believe they don't perform great, other than the fact that most designs usually come with a host of downsides for every positive aspect they add. Seems like every time I get 100% sold on a new concept or design on paper, and end up buying the new do-dickie I end up getting let down once I install it and try it out in real life. Some of this stuff can be real heart breaking.

However, on paper and in theory both sound pretty darn great. So I am just curious to know how impressed you've been since you have had a chance to try them out in real life.

thanks, there are a few newer goodies on this rifle.

the eotech is the same as other eotechs that i've used, just this one takes up less real estate on your rail. the aimpoint vs. eotech arguement will go on forever but i'll say this. i'm an aimpoint guy and i love the t-1 and h-1 micros. but under timed drills, i am a split second faster with the eotech. in the end, i would still choose a t-1 based on battery life, weight, and overall size.

as for the AFG, i can't say that i'm completely sold on them. i like the feel of my stubby TD foregrips or KAC hand stops more. but the key attribute that i do like about the AFG is that it can be used to lengthen short carbine length handguards like the one pictured above. you get to squeeze another inch or two of finger space past the handguard under the gas block. i used to burn my hands all the time by accidentally grabbing too forward on the rifle. not anymore with the AFG.

sorry couldn't resist I see more pictures of crap hanging off lots of AR's they must weigh 20 lbs.



I'm in the process of building one for calling coyotes in 20 practical, very simple and straight forward. And i only need one sighting device.

Weight is on the back burner if you are increasing your weapons effectiveness and capability.

oz = pounds and pounds = pain, how effective can an operator be running around with 20lbs of useless gear? If I had 20lbs of extra ammo that's another story.

Even my scoped 20" AR weighs only. 10 - 11 lbs. My midlengths with an aimpoint weighs 8 lbs. So I dont know where you guys are seeing these 20lb ARs.

20lbs is an exaggeration, But having a +12 pound m4 profile rifle, which there are a lot of, is excessive. I have an EOtech, MBUS and pistol flashligh on mine and it's a little over 6 poinds. One of my persicion uppers weights 9pounds alone (24inch bull barrel with rifle lenght quad rail). And im pretty sure if I put all of my tacticool gear on it I could get my rifle to 17pounds, I think I would need the flare launcher if I wanted to hit 20lbs.

Where it all began


Making progress


Almost there


I don't want to hear any static over my el-cheapo temporary sight! I took a pay cut at work and I need something to use in the interm.


Still have to get my BCG and CH, but am lacking funds right now to do so. I can dream though........

Looks like a side-charger of some kind - check out the lack of a charging handle at the rear. Possibly VM Hytech (hence the VM logo) or maybe an ASA (American Spirit Arms) - did ASA buy VM? Huh, dunno...

That upper is made by American Spirit Arms (ASA). It is a billet, side charging, non-reciprating upper. The plug where a standard charging handle would go can swivel in and out. It fuctions as a plug and tightens the fit between the upper and lower. I like a whole lot more than the standard uppers.

A bit older of a pic:

My first AR. Just built it this morning.

It's a Del-Ton I built for plinking. Next AR I build will be of better quality. I have in mind what I want, just have to wait for a good deal...but I want an AK first

First off rifle setup is ALL preference. In my humble opinion I will take a few more pounds any day for added capability. BTW my LWRC with white light, aimpoint, AN/PEQ15, Troy BUIS is barely 9 pounds, a pig maybe. But worth every pound as my night fighting capability's are immense.


Since it's a picture thread I will try to stay on topic with an older picture of mine:
