    It's a Spike's 5.56 w/ govt profile barrel, MRO Patrol on a LaRue QD mount, Inforce WMLx, and Magpul CTR stock. Other than that I swapped out the Magpul grip that Spike's uses for their builds. I like the BCM Mod 2 over the Magpul for several reasons. Oh, and the sling is from Blue Force Gear and it's the bees knees IMO.

    I hear spikes barrels are good. Agreed on the blue force gear slings. I just picked up a stripped lower last week for a spare. It already has some parts in it, I guess it won’t be a spare for long.

    I don't think you need to be told, but post some pics when you get it done. :D

    It will be a while before it’s done. I did pick up a Magpul k2 + grip last night. I like the rubberized grip, not sure about the reduced angle yet. I’ll have to get an upper on it and see if it is an improvement.

    I thought I had two blue force gear slings. I must have forgotten what sling I had on my 5.56 when I ordered the blue force gear for the 6.8. The black one is a vtac sling. I was comparing them this morning. The vtac has a longer padded section that is more comfortable. I tend to notice the narrow part of the sling digging into the back of my ribs more during a long day hunting. The sling material is thicker on the bfg, the vtac has thinner material that is almost slick. Adjustments are faster with the vtac with the thinner material and metal quick release buckle. The bfg seems to be a shorter sling, so it ends up having a cleaner look with less sling tails to get caught on things. That could probably be remedied by trimming the excess and some ranger bands.
    I took some pics to compare the two, the slings are too long to get in one frame when they are laid out straight but I hope you can get an idea of their differences. I’m not sure which one is the better sling. I do prefer the longer padded section on the vtac, it’s going to get moved to the 6.8 since it’s a heavier set up and gets carried for hunting.
    I’m interested in seeing the other sling options and opinions the forum members have. I’m always interested in trying new USA made gear.

    I've been interested I the vtac as well. I think the padded version would suit my 20" ar10 nicely.

    On the note of USA made slings, I did receive a Specter Gear sling for my 870 Police Mag just yesterday. I have a defensive shotgun course in early August and I'd imagine I'll have a better idea how well I like it afterwards.

    I checked out the spectre gear slings. It’s a nice option that you can pick what shotgun/stock combo you have. Decent pricing too. I need a sling and sling mount for my mossberg.

    Painted my dad’s pump ak. Lowes had krylon camo green. It’s the closest I’ve found to od green so far.
