Never thought of that. Thanks.

The ACS is a good stock. It's longer and heavier than the MOE and has a better cheek weld. Works better for heavier rifles, the MOE/CTR does better for LW and SBRs.

The ACS is a nice stock. Check out the ACS-L and the STR. I like the L better than the regular and the STR works best for me. I've become fond of the MOE grip over the MIAD. The K grip was was to small but had a nice angle. Kinda like a 1911. The MOE + is nice.

Oh great, I get an ACS and then they release the LW version.

1.6 oz, guess I can handle that...

I have an ACS, it rattles. That dummy round just rattles around in the lower compartment its annoying . As for the 2 upper compartments......its noticebly heavier than my emod and ctr so....I don't wanna put anything in em. I honestly don't think Ill buy another ACS but the STR Looks mighty sexy, maybe a ACR-L. Honestly those storage compartments are kinda unecessary.

Imho the Moe + is the best magpul grip out there.

Btw if anyone has the Magpul ACS stock, the MIAD grip kit, or the new Magpul MOE rifle stock please enlighten me on them.
They are some bad ass skulls.

I have the ACS-L on my rifle, it's nice. No rattle from the stock itself even without the friction lock engaged. I don't have anything in the compartment yet, trying to decide what the best use of space will be. It's super light, weighing almost as little as the MOE stock.

MOE stock: roughly half a pound
ACS-L empty: roughly 3/4 a pound

Black Jack!

Now that is a nice AR! I notice you have KNS Anti-Rotate Hammer and Trigger Pins. They realy improve the trigger regardless of using them with a Standard Trigger, Single Stage Match Trigger, or Two Stage Trigger like the Rock Rivers! Nice Piece! Good Job!'
