    I'm curious as to when LWRC went to the cheap standard stocks and grips? These are both of my LWRC's. The top one is a standard M-6, the lower photo is my Paul Howe CSAT Edition. Both came in the box with Vltor E-Mod Stocks and Mag-Pul MIYAD Grips.

    If your going to swap out the stock and grip I would recommend the Vltor E-Mod. It's really well made and give a much better, more comfortable cheek weld than the standard stock. I left the Mag-Pul grips on both of mine, but I like the Ergo Deluxe Tactical Grip much better. I have large hands and the Ergo seems more "hand filling" than the Mag-Pul with the large insert installed.

    For iron sights I really like the CSAT Sight that's on my CSAT Edition LWRC. You can buy them from XS Sights. Here is a video of Paul Howe demonstrating how they work. It's a really simple concept that works well. I can't believe someone didn't think of this before.

    Check out diamonhead premium buis.

    Excuse my primative mspaint skills plzzz. and rotate the image 45 degrees.

    The grey border is the rear sight aperture, and the black is the front sight. Its so much easier to alight the corners than just trying to put the post in the middle of the circle.

    I'm new to the forum and shooting guns. I'm getting into it slowly and I have a sig sauer m4. But my question is what is the difference in the m4 and the m6? More or less they look the same to me.

    The M6 is a model made by an entirely different company, LWRC. It is a short stroke piston design. I don't believe Sig has an M4 carbine...there's the M400 and the 516 both are modeled after the M4. Not a true M4 but a civilian version of it.

    Nice illustration, Tikki, very informative! I've wondered how the Diamondhead worked. It looks like it would do all right with a standard front sight too.

    I love "Continuing Education". Can we get CE credits? Thanks Tikki, I had wondered about that myself, now I know.

    This is what this Forum is all about, learning the AR platform and it's varients. :cool:

    All I can tell you as far as rail covers, is to stay away from TAPCO. I bought several sets of them and they are bad. They go on easy enough, but they are all wavy and look like crap. I sent them back and purchased several from Bushmaster. They fit like a glove, and look good doing it.

    Look at Samson Evolutions as well. Don't forget to look at the total weight of what you want as well.
