What is a NM Carry Handle??

Looks like you got yourself a good one there, advertising aside. I am looking forward to the final Range Report.

im not an a4 fan but what understand they mean the detachable handle has the NM rear sight parts.

sorry for the advert but i couldnt find just a pic of the upper and the thread woulda been worthless without a pic

Nice, Jon. I'm also interested in how it shoots. RRA barrels are accurate and the NM irons will be interesting.

thats what my research suggested (95% of which was older posts here at ftf) and i LOVE shooting iron sights. came in second today in the iron 50 match at my fav range. post about it in the comp forum!! http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f48/mcmiller-iron-50-a-44383/

ive got a leupold mk4 scope and will prolly get a nightforce at some point for it.

Good choice, what lower are you using?

I have RRA ATH, nice gun. The barrels are decent, I think they use Wilson.
