Probably going to be a while. Honestly things are moving on it faster than expected.
As stated the PRS is on order but there was a mix up with it. Armalite only had 3 of those stocks at that price but through a computer glitch ened up selling 170 of them. I first got an order cancellation then the next day got an email saying they would honor the order if I contacted them to verify it. So I do have the stock on the way but was warned that it may take 3 or 4 weeks given that it hasn't been ordered from Magpul yet. Long story but since the price is about $50 cheaper than I have ever seen that stock; I'll wait for it.
I have the Apex hand guard on order too and expect that in by Monday. However I planned on a full length top rail and those were back ordered so although I have the Apex coming in I will have to take it back off at some point to complete it.
I still need to call S&W for a buffer spring spacer since the PRS stock requires a rifle length buffer tube. It is a simple 2" aluminum spacer that S&W sells for $24. I could cut one out of delrin and I still may but I do plan on ordering the S&W spacer too.
I have switched gas blocks already going with a low profile YHM that should work fine with the Apex hand guard.
As far as the weight of the PRS stock goes; I have mixed emotions about that. I'm going to give it a try. I really need to raise my cheek weld up about 3/8" for a perfect scope fit (for now anyway with the PEPR mount) so we'll see. If it adds more weight than I'm willing to deal with I'll look for another solution. Right now this was cheap and easy.
For right now at least the rifle does have an MOE grip; mostly because that is what I had laying around. I got in the habit of using MOE grips a while back because I like carrying these http://www.samson-mfg.com/ar-15_html/product/FS-001.html
in them. It makes for a nice clean setup and because its in the grip, it is ALWAYS with the rifle. FYI I found out the hard way that the Samson tool doesn't fit in the MOE+ grip; the reason I don't use them.
I'm a fan of the P-mags and they tend to be what I use ALMOST exclusively. This rifle is no exception so when I got it one of the first things I did was order a case of P-mags for it. It came with one metal 10rd mag and that along with a few other 10rd P-mags more than handles my low capacity needs.
