2 Viking Tactics Wide Padded Slings for me.  I got a Viking Tactics 2 to 1 dingus ( KLiK ) to make the one on the AR single point if I ever want to get my nuts cracked.

Exactly!

I want. Trade me for mine

Keep dreaming bud...haha!

I finally got to shoot her today at Hotwells. Didn't run it hard bc they dont allow rapid fire. But i got a good 100 rounds through it. Sighted in the Magpul mbus sights and the Aimpoint at 50 yards. Groups were very tight. After i got the Aimpoint sighted in i was putting 5 shot groups right through the bullseye. The mid-length gas system makes it a really soft shooter, very little recoil. Just got her all cleaned up and took a few photos with my phone.

With the LB UTC:

Single points are good for SBRs, I bought one hoping to use it on my full length upper but i realized when i got it on that it lets the rifle hang too low. I'd go with a two point.

I had a Magpul MS2 but didn't like it because the strap was too thin and after having the rifle on my shoulder for a while it dug into me. I like the wider VTAC slings and similar. The bungee feature is really nice if you dont have a padded sling as well.

just put my surefire scout light on a gear sector mount and i love that it sits so close to the rail. So i'll have to give the thumbs up to the one that sits it closer to the rail.

That does sound kind of odd for a BCM product. Have your smith send it back to them and they will replace it free of charge, then send the upper to me ;)

I probably should have them replace it. I'll shoot them an email and see what they can do for me.

I was able to do the lower myself, but I had a smith pin the FH and install the gas block. It actually started as a BCM assembled upper but when he was torquing the barel back on the BCM upper receiver cracked. He was nice enough to upgrade me to the MUR on his dime. After looking at the BCM upper next to 3 others he laid out for me, it was obvious that the BCM upper was much thinner than others. I'm glad it happened to him and not me!

This is the first one I assembled and I use to say the same thing as you. But don't think it's too difficult to do because although it takes more time than buying one off the shelf it's worth it knowing how everything works together and you feel a sense of accomplishment.

I keep saying it: BCM=Buy Colt Mofo :rocknroll2: :rocknroll2: :rocknroll2:

 :P

I triple dog dare ya to go post that on AR-15.com, the BCM fanboys will have a collective conniption so epic, it will bring that whole section of the interwebs crashing down :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

Ha! I wouldnt dare. I can predict exactly what the comments would say in response: "This guy is a troll" ; "You don't know what you're talking about" ; "It wasn't BCM's fault" ; "This guy needs to be banned" ; "Closing this thread and deleting it so no one knows the truth - MOD"

Truth is I dont have anything against BCM. I only purchased the upper because of their reputation and rave reviews. All the other products I have seen from them have been quality. Maybe the upper receiver was out of spec or something...but who knows.

I guess it doesn't bother me either way, but I'm stuck in my 1911 phase so I'll say I like the hammer! When I use to shoot my 92fs a lot I always hated the initial DA pull (always made me feel like I was shooting a flyer). Maybe I just didn't practice enough with it in DA. The SAO 1911 is just a thing of beauty.

As for the hammerless variety, the pull is consistent like the 1911s (but obviously not as crisp). The only one I still have is my subcompact XD. I don't have any issues with it. Just prefer the hammer because of the guns that have it.

Any update on this? Still a possibility? I pretty much exclusively use tapatalk now as this is the only forum I frequent (frequency has decreased without tapatalk) that doesn't use it.

78
Dom, did this ever change? I haven't checked yet.

Currently have a single point sling on it but after I got everything assembled I think it hangs too low with the full size upper. Probably grabbing a 2-point and saving the single point for the SBR build.

2 point slings are my favorite, after trying a single point before too

Ya before ordering this one, the only one I tried was on a very short SBR so it felt ok. But when this one hangs I feel like I'm kicking it around like a soccer ball. And I don't consider myself a short guy at 5'11"
