    I should have a much more defined answer to this question, but the truth is that I’m so new that I’m just looking for something to get me started. I know that I’ll probably end up modding it just as I do with all of the hobbies I get into.

    Ok guys, say you want to build a “SHTF” gun, primary optic is an LPVO, offset red dot to supplement, sling, light, and “K” can on the muzzle (5-5.5”), bipod is a possible accessory but more of a shooters preference deal.
    Edit: 556 caliber for this particular mental exercise :p

    Would you go with a 12.5” or 13.7” barrel?

    Keep in mind in this theoretical situation you have a 11.5” upper with red dot, BUIS and light, (K can if you want it) for vehicle or other ops where you might want shorter than either 13.7 or 12.5”.

    10.5” barrel, suppressed and folding brace/stock. .300BLK obviously. I’ll get around to it, that’s my next build. Just finished my 5.56 pistol tonight.

    What is your 556 pistol build?

    Ghost Firearms 7.5” upper, skeletonized lower both in tungsten gray. SBA3 brace, vortex strike fire II red dot (overkill, probably switch to romeo5), MBUS backup sights, Radian Raptor charging handle, talon ambi safety selector. May have missed a few things.

    Oh yeah, Magpul bad lever and Odin extended mag release

    That looks slick! The red dot does look a bit big though.
