(Hey, I got it two weeks before Christmas...)
It's a pretty standard carbine configuration; a collapsible stock (pinned to comply with MA AWB); 16.25" barrel, shortened handguard; and standard carry handle. The pinned stock always grated at me - it would be very handy to actually be able to use that collapsing stock for new shooters and such - and I wanted to be able to add optics/red dot or holographic sights and a pistol grip forend.
It now sports an ACE skeleton rifle stock in place of the pinned collapsible stock and a UTG quad rail handguard in place of the standard carbine handguard. The UTG quad rail has a LaserLyte Kryptonyte Gunsight K-15 green carbine laser on top and the aforementioned LaserMax Colt CGL foregrip laser underneath. I was tempted to stick on one of the LaserLyte pistol bayonets in front of the foregrip just so it would have a bayonet, but it slipped my mind...
I'd like to swap out the pistol grip itself to something a little more ergonomic; perhaps a scout-type scope to mount off the handguard (or just the illuminated scope kindly gifted to me last year by AD); definitely a sling (any thoughts?). The only other "big ticket" item I might consider adding on would be a high intensity weapon light - like the Surefire Scout Light - off the side rail for complete target illumination (note to SureFire: We'd be happy to review any and all weapon-mounted lights here at MArooned - we can accomodate pistol rail lights, shotgun lights, or AR-15 lights...)
What other must-have accessories should I be thinking about?
That is all.
