More silly than a magwell grip on a rifle w/ a 24" barrel?

Heres an 18" barrel on an AR. White Oaks 1:7 SPR profile rifle length SS barrel. The cantilever mount takes away the need for maxing out the LOP adjustment on stocks.




Like Tactical mentioned 18" is a nice length. There's even reports that 18" is ideal for .308.

Once again, we are just trying to help by answering the question you asked using the info we have gathered through many many hours of research. Believe me if a 24" barrel was a better choice the rifle above would have one on it.

That does look very nice, I just love the look of the longer barrel. Its not like it hurts any thing. If I was to move the scope that far forward my cheek would be to far forward to use the cheekrest, but u are right about the LOP. If u didn't need the cheek riser or the stock adjustments what made u go for that stock instead of one like this

I had one before and there great, very solid and the mono pod has more adjustment than any other I have seen. But the cheek riser system on here is a lil odd.

The magwell grip again is personal tastes, it just happens to be where i Iike my off hand when shooting off the bipod.
im going back and forth on replacing the rereceiveret to this on that precision build
LWSF Matched Billet Upper and Lower Pair - LOKI Weapon Systems
just don't know if its worth the $$$, but damn I love the looks of this set

Thank you.

The cheek piece looks way to far to the rear.

Your off-hand would be of better use on the stock holding it firmly into your shoulder in order to stablize the rifle better

I understand personal taste but personally I don't let it get in the way of performance. Theres a reason you're looking for a lighter weight barrel, correct?

As far as the receiver combo, they look nice but I don't see what the offer that you can't get from a forged set. The machined in magwell grip from my experience is not an ideal grip. There are others such as the support arm fully extended on the HG or on the stock as stated before.

better fit design between upper and lower, also its far thicker for better rigitidy, wich would be a good idea if i leave the heavy bull barrel on it. also i like for it to look a lil differnt than any one elses

Fit is nice but it has no real effect on accuracy.

Go for it if thats what you want. I have never seen them before so you'll have an uncommon set.

Oh, I will. Problem is, I see a strong similarity in taste of firearms. Most of what is in that pic is what I have already planned for a rainy day.

The Larue stuff is costly but top shelf. Hindsight I would have liked to have found some of the stuff slightly used but it was cool getting all the swag. There is absolutely no shame in purchasing from the Equipment Exchanges on this and other forums.
