@MSTN

Why do you prefer the Tailhook over the SBA-3? Planning a pistol in the future at some point and am currently set on the SBA-3.

I do also like the SBA3 and use it often in custom pistol builds. It is light in weight and reasonably priced. My only issue with it is the toe of the SBA3 stock seems to become more pliable with regular use. This for me presents a problem.

There's a heavier replacement strap that may help solve that issue:

The Gear Head Works brace is as rigid as any normal buttstock. It also has a slightly longer drop at the toe, too, than other braces, which I personally like for my own man/machine interface.

My newest, and my new go to rifle for anything.
8lb 5oz with no mag. The ADM TA31 mount is very nice as it allows me proper eye relief without sacrificing ergonomics. Looks kinda silly, but it works out great for my body. Just waiting on my Cloud Defense LCS to ship now.

Vltor MUR upper, BCM ELW 16” barrel, BCM MCMR 13” handguard, BCM gas block, BCM BCG, Geissele ACH, Aero lower, Larue MBT-2S Flat trigger, SOLGW lpk, Radian 45* ambi safety, BCM furniture (skateboard tape on the pistol grip), Geissele 5-Axis trigger guard, Vltor A5 buffer system, SF M600DF, Magpul Pro LR buis set, BFG VTAC padded sling on QDs, and an A2 flash hider until I can get a SF Warcomp in. Plan on picking up a SF Suppressor in 2021. Might add an offset RMR at some point, but today found the BAC method to work good with the objective lens closed. Need to test it more though.

Really happy with this rifle so far. Only thing to do now is burn this barrel out.

" I essentially wanted a shorter SPR style rifle. "
Do you think you got it?
Beautiful rig, I must say!
Thanks man! Yes, I feel it’s a good balance. The ATACR 4-16 is overkill, but I wasn’t comfortable with the NXS 2.5-10. The 4-16 has the Mil-C that matches the 5-25 on my AI...OCD is satisfied. Below is a 5 shot group with factory Hornady match the first trip out. Shot 4 wasn’t included in that measurement. I always manage to throw shot 4. C759400E-8DAA-4F1D-9BE7-9D31FEBF13E8.jpeg
