It's the carbine. So far I plan on the magpul stock and foregrip, mako quad rail, eotech, Troy industries buis (although I'm leaning towards magpul buis now), and a vortex flash suppressor.

Magpul MBUS is a better sight for less money in my opinion. I like the fact that it doesn't lock in the up position therefore if dropped on itself it just folds down.

I believe someone did a review on several different BUIS to see how far they lost zero when dropped and magpul beat Troy and another brand...I can't seem to find it right now I'm on my phone maybe someone will post a link.

Well here she is guys. Mako quad rail, magpul vertical foregrip, magpul BUIS, eotech, and pmags. Colt. Thanks for all your advice guys (although I should hold the thanks until after the range report!!!)

Just for kicks. Move that foregrip out as far as you can while still not touching any part of your hand to anything hot i.e. the FSB or barrel. Watch how good it improves your muzzle control when engaging multiples or room clearing. With the grip as close to the receiver as you've got it, I imagine you cannot "snap" the gun target to target without getting sway involved and having to re-acquire targets. Just some helpful tips. Nice rifle indeed.
