I felt a need to remove the pic and references.
I tried it out on a pitch black night and was pretty happy with the feel and performance. For "off hand" shots at distance, I wouldn't use that handle, anyway. But I may just try as you suggest as this type of rifle is new to me...never had a fancy butt rifle like this one...still wouldn't if it hadn't been for the "election"...I couldn't find a coffee maker on it...nor a beer brewer...the charging handle is extended out for more convenience with their scope location. Yesterday I moved the scope a notch forward to allow for the mounting of a flip up rear sight...I figure if technology fails...I break the scope or whatever, I can now just drop off the scope and shoot more old school.You got pretty much everything on there including backup optic!
Only thing I would change is the light, I would move it onto the right hand rail and move the G-money grip all the way forward.
Nice single point sling too. What flavor of charging handle is that (or extended latch anyway)?
Wonder if I can fit a bayonet on that lug with all that fancy doodad stuff on there? My wife wants me to get a 203 grenade launcher (she likes blowing things up lol)...it'll be fun to shoot...but I'm still thinking my Winchester 94 w/large loop lever, 24" barrel and special (even long range) vernier sights on it will be my favorite.Somebody went all mall ninja on that thing. Enjoy...
I didn't really pay attention to the term "mall ninja"...just sounded funny. Upon looking it up, you do realize it's a very degrading and insulting term, right? So you know, I prefer iron sights to all this fancy stuff. But if these styles might be banned, we wanted to get anything we might possibly want in the future. I'm quite experienced and draw no manhood or even a great deal of pride from firearms of any kind...and not only am I not in love with all the "bling" and technology, I'm an old fashioned type of man and shooter. I like to think you were using it in some way distant from it's definition as you don't know me or my experience. We don't keep up with all the terms the youngsters like to toss out these days.Somebody went all mall ninja on that thing. Enjoy...
