Default Spikes Tactical [It's here!]

The 10 day waiting period is over and it's here and it looks awesome!

I took a quick picture with my phone. We immediately replaced the
butt-stock and pistol grip. Turns out I have a mid-length and my wife
bought a carbine length hand guard. I should have a new hand guard Tue
or Wed night.

I seem to have a smile ear-to ear that you can't slap off! Cant wait to finish it and take her to the range.



There is an American flag you can see on the mag well. It looks ultra-
bright but that's just the cell-phone flash. The dealer sold me the lower
receiver from from from his stock that he sells to police departments.

I love the fact it has the full-auto imprint, even tho I can't select. (it's the
little things in life)

Looks nice, it seems to be missing the bayonet.

Glad you noticed that too! Now i just have to convince the wife it needs one.

QUESTION: How safe for this gun is it to practice dry-fire?

Not sure about the specific brand, but when I go through CATM we always are given a few dummy rounds for when we dry fire.

Very nice! And much better that it's a middy and you have to exchange the carbine handguards instead of the other way around...
