    Totally tactical!! I have a similar setup. It's the urban model designed to hold a 24oz Colt45. Helps with muzzle rise. It varies with how much is left in the can......... the screw top bottle adds weight, and deters spills. [​IMG]

    I have 2 PSA uppers with that style hand guard. Haven't shot them. Add on trinkets are few and far between to get for those. Probably the reason for the wait.

    That was the only direct attach hand stop I could find anywhere. They make the same parts that attach on a pic rail & M-Lok, or Key-Mod foregrips but the pic rail hand stop would have stuck out more would not have been as comfortable to use. Since I have no problem at all with the std. M4 foregrip and wanted to keep it, this was the only direct attach option like it I could find. The vertical & angled foregrips just get in your way when you’re in a hunting blind.

    This. That's more than I paid for my last two Trijicon MRO's. They were used, bought off ebay when the new "MRO Patrol" came out and guys were jumping on the latest-&-greated bandwagon, but work as well as new ones.

    I did get a bad one once when buying used, but Trijicon replaced all the internals (everything but lenses & housing) at no charge even though I told them I'd bought it used. I've bought three MRO's used, and feel like I've come out miles ahead that way; paying something like $750-$800 for all three combined. Two were in perfect shape, and the third one got rebuilt under warranty. Very happy with them and recommend watching ebay & other online sites when a new iteration or generation of red dots come out. Some guys just have to have the newest version, and sell off their perfectly good previous-generation ones cheap to help foot the bill. Just as with vehicles, when this year's model comes out, last year's identical model gets magically cheaper. :cool:

    both seem to be fine, both of them eject fine, load fine. I have a 5.56 upper on my GF also. I have heard there were some QC issues.

    I just remembered that I was supposed to quit showing pictures of my guns that had the serial number showing. I need to make sure I’m wide awake before I post anything in the future.

    Member on another forum had issues with his BCA bolt carrier group.

    I bought 2 complete uppers from Combat arms back in January. The machining on one of the carriers wouldn't let the locking lugs line up with the barrel extension slots. The guy sent me a new BCG.

    I see you folks talkin about a BCG here, so...

    Issue with an AR 5.56
    What is a decent BCG for an old retired guy that dosent have a wealth of money to spend. I have a BCG that seems to give me feeding issues, or at least it seems that is the problem anyway.

    Whats happening is, is when i release the bolt, it jams the cartridge when its going up into the chamber. I tried different mags thinking that might have been it, but that didnt fix it. I have all sorts of different mags, but that dosent seem to change anything. But if i change out the BCG, the gun works fine.

    I tried the troubled BCG in another gun, had the same feeding issues, so i`m going to guess its a bad BCG (?). I`m new to the platform, so if i`m out of line here, please let me know. I`m still learning.

    I'm no expert but have successfully disassembled and reassembled my BCG for cleaning purposes after having the rifle at my range. Have you tried that? I think I may have even pioneered a very effective way to reassemble it incorrectly.

    Try swapping the bolt between those two carrier groups and see if the issue follows the bolt.
    Think the bolt could be flipped 180 degrees?

    Nope, the bolt is installed correct. I personally think the bolt itself is junk. I`ve now tried it in 3 different guns now, still malfunctions. I`m going to order a new complete BCG and be done with it.

    In the mean time, i`m going to measure ALL the dimensions of each gun and see if this one particular gun might be a bit out of spec within the upper and causing it to maybe run to tight. Already replaced the recoil spring and buffer before i tried to put the BCG in another rifle.

    If anyone knows of a good BCG without spend a gazillion dollars for one, let me know.

    Thanks! ;)

    If the issue does follow the bolt just buy another bolt?
    Maybe don't need a complete BCG?

    I bought a AR10 that only had one mag run through it. It wouldn't eject correctly, some times jam up and other times you could hold your hand directly under the ejection port and the brass would roll out of the receiver and into your hand. My FFL had me buy a JP Enterprises BCG. I tried cutting the buffer spring, getting different buffers but the BCG was the answer.
