Thanks! Yeah, she was born 556 carbine rifle, but has since gone Modular!!



Her SIG516 sister started as P516 pistol, and SBR'ed to rifle.



Both of these approaches avoid the purgatory of a SBR held hostage to a Form 4 direct purchase. These Form 1 builds are bad enough, I'm not sure I could survive a rifle held in NFA jail for a year...

Cheers

Is there a good reason to tuck the can?
I would think you could have a lighter rifle with a narrower front hand guard that's also easier to grasp. I use a Griffin (spelling?) cover on my can which can be used to get an extended reach if necessary.

Still a beautiful set-up(s).

Thanks. Yeah sure, you can use a glove n' cover - don't shoot your thumb off though!!.

I'm just keeping my shooting grip and motions consistent. All of our ARs have the same 10 to 12" handguards, i.e. the 16s", 14.5", 10" and 9" barrel guns handle the same.

Cheers

David45, I don't know about the OP, but I just got the suppressor sized guard in the other day and it fits my hand way better than the stock one.

I also used the largest setup they had for my Magpul gen 1.1 if that explains size of hands, length of fingers, etc. I don't think I have large hands, not small, either, but doing construction maybe, I do have strong hands, and the larger just feels better.

The basic bag itself is very good - well made of quality materials, and some of the interior pouches are useful - but others aren't. For example, my 16" 5.56 barrel is too long for their long barrel pouch. Also, the hand guards won't fit either. So, I'm adding other OEM's pouches as needed.

I bought this bag at a discount last year, when SIG was liquidating their MCX Deployment bags. Perhaps they'll come out with a better idea on these interior pouches...

Cheers
