ToysRus sells ARs? I gotta go check them out!

I needed a place to put it. I don't shoot it through there. The rear sight hangs there. if I run out of battery, I move it to the top rail.

Have you ever tried a thumb over grip?

Dude,

that's not a rear sight.

That a prototype for the Magpul SLEH.

Spring Loaded Ergo Handstop, in Midnight Operator Black.

I ended up getting the S&W M&P AR-15 5.56 for eight bills. It has the flat top rail, so i went to Cheaper than dirt to get the Magpul front and rear sights, for the both I payed $114 including shipping; although the rear sights are on back order, I have only heard good thing about these sights. This thing is awesome, couldn't be happier. Just a beautiful weapon!

I thought it was there for when you want to go gangsta on somebody.

Cancel your order and go here Our Catalog

In stock and cheaper plus free shipping.

Do me a favor and "favorite" the above site, DSG Arms, Palmetto State, Rainier Arms, and SKD Tactical.

Places like CTD are not your friends. They usually have slower shipping and cost more (parts and shipping).

Sometimes you can do all right at CTD (and CDNN) but I agree that usually there are better choices like mentioned above. My last order from CTD was for a Walther P38/P1 slide/parts kit for $89, a good deal and not carried by that many places. Not so good on AR parts.
