    I ordered my hand stop from Impact Weapons Components 6 days ago now, and it still hasn’t even shipped. They say ship times are roughly 8-14 days due to Covid. The Covid excuse is getting worn out by a lot of companies.

    Let's just tell the truth what's going on is there a flooded with orders and they can't keep up. Even parts hard to come by

    Got my magpul sl-s storage compartment stock in today. Not much wider than the sl stock but enough for a bigger cheek weld. I plan to put two cr123a batteries in the right side and a bore snake along with spare small parts out if a whoops kit in the left side, just waiting on my k2 grip along with oil bottle holder insert

    You should see if you can fit a cut down old tooth brush in the grip or storage tube.

    you’re all set for the apocalypse.
