Ok.

The GripPod is huge, I always found, and added too much weight to the front of the gun. Plus you have iron sights, currently, and I don't see much of a use for a bipod at the moment.

Have you tried running your light on the side of the gun? The Magpul handguards are great for their modularity, and maintaining light weight.

As I stated in my other thread, I have lots of shoulder, elbow and wrist pain, so for me I try to make the gun as light weight and maneuverable as possible to prevent shooter fatigue.

Your mileage may vary. I have to carry my gun much longer than folks do at the local 3-gun match.

For Naz.  Is your EOTech stable like that?

The Eotech is stable, but you are correct, it's a heavy rifle. And, with the multiplier flipped out of the way and my flip up sight in the up position, I can view my iron sights through the Eotech.

I like the Elzetta setup with the light adjusted so that when gripping the GripPod, to activate the light, all I have to do is slide my top finger on my grip hand up to either feather the light in bursts, or fully depress for constant on.

Thx for the feedback... Only thing I'm not fully comfortable with is the Troy sling. Kind of awkward at times..., I need to put a little time into trying out some other options. Phone Post

It's think that it's a user-preference issue and your mileage may vary, but I really dislike VGs even when standing up and shooting on the move.

Have you tried magpuls angled foregrip? I have one on my mp15 and like it Phone Post

Ok it just looked like the EOTech wasn't grabbing much rail.

As long as you are happy with this setup.

Bravo45, have you taken any carbine training courses? I'm thinking of taking a tactical carbine course and possibly a small unit tactics course. What's your opinion on the utility of these and would you recommend any?

I have taken courses at MidSouth and other more exclusive places.

I would highly recommend a carbine course.

I don't know any reputable instructors teaching SUT- courses though.

One on the rail closest to the magwell, and the other end on or near the end of the buttstock.

I don't like the rifle to hang so high that the buttstock is over my shoulder when I'm hands-free because it interferes with my pistol draw stroke.

bravo45 - So flashlights:

The brands I recommend are Surefire and Insight. We will talk about some mounting and usage options with pictures to explain a few things.

Have you experienced Powertac lights enough to develop an opinion of them?

Have two I'm happy with, but no feel on how they stack up.

This thread is very relevent to my intrests.

I am in the process of setting up a new 10.5 inch AR, with a light, and the light/grip/sling setup on such a short rifle is annoying the fuck out of me.

No, and unlike most internet gun experts, I don't want to comment on something I don't have any experience with.
