In celebration of the sunset I decided to redo my LMT rifle.

The upper is an LMT 14.5" mounted to a PWA lower with an LMT 2 stage trigger.

I made the following mods:

Permanently installed a YHM 51C Phantom
Added a La Rue BUIS
Unpinned the Magpul stock
Painted the Magpul Receiver Extension with Coyote AlumaHyde2
Replaced the MRF-CX with a DD 7.0
Replaced the EO Tech 551 with an Aimpoint Comp M2

I'm really pleased with the results:



I also have a Blue Force Gear sling coming in to try out in the next week or so.

The MRF-CX was a nice fore end, but the 7.0 is definitely lighter. Plus, as a Troy and DD dealer, I've found Troy somewhat difficult to get my hands on while DD always has stuff in stock. So, I need to use what I can and do actually sell. I was heavily influenced on this decision also by the carbine I built for k9dpd.

The EO Tech is a VERY nice optic. I actually prefer the reticle but have been wanting to try an Aimpoint for some time. I had the opportunity to try jar3ds' out a few weeks back and really liked it and had already been contemplating replacing the 551 with a 552. So, I went with the Aimpoint for now and will mount an EO Tech 552 with the 3.75 magnifier on another carbine I am currently building.

Most definitely, but with it getting dark so early, we'll probably have to go on the weekends now.

Looks promising. I already have calls into Aimpoint and another Aimpoint supplier I have.
