Just a little update on some things I added to my rifle. I bought a magpul MVG and modified it so I could install it directly to the NSR rail without having to add any rail sections....the dremmel tool wins again! Feels a lot better than the RVG on the added rail because there is no space between the VG and the rail. Also added the Insight WML HSP weapon light...love it! Half the weight of the TLR1s HP. here's some quick pics. RIP John Noveske

I believe the MOE is the basic version without the friction lock...the CTR is the same but with the friction lock added....the STR is the CTR but with added storage compartments for AA AND CR123 batteries. All predecessors of each other

Are they all about the same price?

The MOE is roughly $50, the CTR about $25 more and STR another $15. The CTR is my favorite.

I kinda wish I got the CTR. Prob can't go wrong with either but coulda saved a couple ounces I guess. Now that I have the MIAD I don't really need the battery storage on the STR. Wasn't planning on getting a MIAD but didn't like how narrow the ergo grip was that came with my LPK...doesn't suit larger sized hands.

Installed my new Tactical Link Enhanced Battery Assist Lever today! Had a bad experience with Magpul so I went with this piece. Rock solid no wobble whatsoever. Love it so far ill have to see how well it functions during live fire. Got if for 29.95 + free shipping at Tacticallink.com
