I think I have narrowed it down between the troy MRF-C or the P4 Predator.......someone talk me into one!!!!!
I like the troy because there is no gap between the top rail and the top of a flat top reciever but some say you should use a "riser" for an EOTech to raise it up enough to get the front iron sight out of the way. The predator looks like it would raise the EOTech up by itself. I need something thats going to stand up to lots of abuse and last a lifetime.
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!

The TROY is a fantastic unit. I've been very happy with mine.

Ditto for the Troy - a very good unit.

The Predator may raise the EOTech too much (like the SIR). EOTech will work as is on the standard flattop - but many of us find it works a bit better on the LaRue Mount (the only 'mount' that works with the EOTech and allows the sight to still cowitness).

+1 for the Troy. I'm STILL waiting for mine to come in, but I've had a Predator and I know there are better systems out there and the Troy is shaping up to be one of the better ones, especially if you don't want to remove your FSB.

polyak.....that looks AWESOME!!!its pretty much the same set up I want but I am going with the black furnature. I love the troy and the way it has a nice smooth line across the top....where it buts up to the reciever. I just think the mount messes up the smooth lines....why does the mount stick out behind the EOTech?

Yeah, what Grant said

The Larue mount does fix the issues some have with the Eotech. I'm exremely happy with the Larue mount and where it now positions te window in relation to the irons.


I also agree with you, the continuous rail is sweet

I'm waiting on the MRF-MX, that's the only piece I'm missing for my current project.

Sorry for the newbie question...

Do all the Troy Handguards allow the upper/lower to pivot fully?
From the pics, it looks like it would bang into the lower...

either way, it looks great! nice ARs!

It doesn't allow for a full 90 degree pivot, probably more like a 75-80 degrees of motion. Well more than enough for any maintenance tasks. I doubt anyone ever uses the full 90 degrees anyway.

What make and model is the sling?

It looks like the Troy single point CQB sling to me.

All handguards will hit the lower, the only question is whether they hit at 90 degrees, 45 degrees or somewhere in between. Anything with rails on the bottom will have less room to open than otherwise identical hanguards without rails.

what kind of collapsable stock is it? what does it do other than standard 2/4/6 position? looks like there's something more.

That is the MagPul M93A modstock. It has 7 positions, is very solid and has a modular design so that it can be upgraded and configured in the future.

As NewbHunter said, it is the TROY Industries sling.

Yup, that's the Magpul stock and it's top notch piece. There is a good description and comparisons for it against the other stocks available here: www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=188153
