Well, it's mine now, lock stock and barrel.... The had a hard time finding the box for the BSE Red Dot, so they sold it to me for $39.99. I bought an extra Colt used 20 rnd mag with the savings. This thing is sooo sweet, I visually checked it over, and it is definately a post ban, with the front divits for the lower reciever replaced with a locking pin. I know there isn't a hell of a lot of accys for this weapon, but I'm looking for a Picatiny add on rail that would clamp on to the front portion of it's current rail, then go forward about 4 or 5 inches and provide another rail on the bottom side to mount a laser, or any kind of Picatiny rail that can be mounted on the bottom of the fore stock. I may have to have one "made", by a competent metal worker/gunsmith.
I found a full write up for those that are interested, This thing is based on the AR-18, not the AR-15.... Woohoo, no excessive cleaning for me!
And they only noted 3 drawbacks to the weapon;
1 You can't shoot it left handed...(I'm a righty)
2 You really must use an aftermarket sight. (Got a BSE Red Dot)
3 The fore grip gets pretty hot after firing for a while. (This one is tricky, but I'm talking to a Gunsmith about drilling and installing a short Picatiny rail on the underside of the fore grip, just behind the swivel, then mounting a pistol grip type handle on the rail, I can even get one with a built in Lazer.)
