Nice looking stick! Howz she shoot?

If I could make a few suggestions. Put your red dot on your upper receiver. The forearm isn't a free floating unit and with shift depending on how you hold it. Also though I'm not sure what kind of sights you have, but I think they may be backwards.....

as soon as I seen the picture I was thinking the same thing. you could try a cantilever mount off your upper receiver, this will still push your optical out further

Took it out finally did my wear in and shot some for fun. Had a total blast with it. It really shoots like a dream. It reminded me why I fell in love with this platform when I've shot then in the past. Got a lot of compliments on it no offers to buy but its not for sale anyway. And I fixed all the things you guys pointed out
