    I have purchased several things from optics planet. Enough that I have their app on my phone. Most recently I bought my Alpha Wolf g33 barrel.

    Not to throw a wrench in the works but the plus grips are really nice. Adds a very nice tacky rubber overmold on the grip. 059B490C-97D0-45B3-AE92-85A2F0C5C373.jpeg

    I like Magpul FDE. However their polymer BUIS, and trigger guard are over the top and ugly for me.

    I run 6+ or more brands of mags. Some translucent smoke ETS. Steel, aluminum, and polymer.

    If you are fretting about the mag colors you need to stay in the closet............... :D

    I like a well coordinated rifle. Doesn’t mean you always need certain color mags.

    Oh definitely the fde mag isnt a deal breaker, just figured it would be nice to have one. Actually idk why s&w put a fde mbus rear sight on it instead of black. Im just glad you guys steered me away from a black pistol grip lol

    So is the fde rear sight a clash with my setup? Black may blend better with the holosun and receiver?

    Actually now that i think about it the fde rear sight balances out the fde pistol grip

    They don’t always ship super fast. 2 weeks would be max from date of order.
