    I think you made a great choice. I see more AR’s coming with that butt stock at my LGS, then any other. Nice!!

    Not a fan of mismatched furniture. People will think you’re a broke ass or impatient or both.

    So your saying leave all furniture FDE, & rest black? Or you don’t like the two tone?

    I just think the fde grip clashes slightly with the black magwell and black mag

    Looking closer the black bottom on the FDE grip kind of ties it in.

    Like the 2 tone just think a black grip would make you look like the poors.

    so is the fde mag a deal breaker? I guess if i get the fde grip im no different than i am now, then if i can get a fde mag ill be set

    For me I think the furniture should match mag matching isn’t as big a deal.

    i get what your saying, in general the furniture on the ar includes the handguard, the stock and grip so it matching makes sense, the moe sl-s and the moe k2 both have black covers on them already so it should blend more than the plain fde

    Would the Vertical grip be considered part of the furniture as well? It should stay fde right

    Just ordered the moe k2 grip in fde, along with the oil bottle insert, a pack of 8” x 12” micro fiber cloths (gonna try to fit one in one of the compartments in the stock) and a s&w oops kit. We will see how it goes, my plan is to have clp in the grip, two spare cr123a batteries in the right compartment and the bore snake and cloth in the left compartment, ideally id like to fit the spare parts somewhere but i ended up getting the parts kit and cloths for only $4 more with free shipping than if i just bought the grip and insert and paid for shipping since my total was over $49 from opticsplanet
