Just got my upper back from Bushmaster today and have been sitting on a new EOTech 551 Rev E and ARMS #40 BUIS for almost two weeks... Well my Plane Jane got herself a makeover! Daddy Likee!

Before:


After:


I had a very hard time deciding between the EOTech and a ML2 but the EOTech seems pretty darn nice. Can not wait to get her zeroed and back on duty!

No offense, pal, but that's 38, maybe 40% more evil, tops. A wise investment nonetheless.

Oh, I don't know. He got rid of the thermold and went with a USGI magazine. You have to give him some credit for that. That gives you an increase in reliability when you spray it from the hip. I'm going to give you...well, let's say...55% increase in evilness.

Gonna order a Tango Down Battlegrip and vertical fore grip after Christmas... I have a M-3 light to go onboard. Good for a 20-30% increase but the vert grip and light will be on a bolt on rail so that should deduct what, 15% off the top? I just can not justify a RAS or RIS or whatever for a grip and light. Israeli sling is en-route. 5-10% bump, eh? I have 10 thermolds and 10 USGI 30s + 5 GI 20s so I am good to go there.

Damn good eyes! I've had the Tac latch for some time... I really do not like it as it protrudes too much to the left and hangs and jabs when front slinging the rifle, such as during a transisition drill or simple patrol carry. I want to replace it but have not decided which product to try yet. I give it a - 5% Evil Rating due to it's problems. [;)]

Went from 2 finger grooves to 3 comfy ones. That's gotta' be worth at least 5%. Congrats on a mean/sweet looking rifle.

Oops, deleted my prior post due to doubletap. I agree about the tac latch catching on things. I dumped mine in favor of a PRI latch. It's nice and rounded on the protruding end but does provide more surface area. Much better, IMHO.

I agree...she certainly looks very sweet now. Good investment!
Link Posted: 12/23/2003 7:24:31 AM EDT
Yeah, but he kept the HBAR. How are you supposed to wildly point the thing if its so damn heavy? I think it should be a 5% deduction for that [:D] Ghost

HILLARY LOOK!............An EXTREMIST!!!...An EXTREMIST!!!!!!!

Looks good...I would say it is more like 60% [b]TACTICAL[/b] now. [:D] Black is always evil.... Nice job in any case, good to see AR make-overs going on.

Thanks! What fun is all of this stuff if you can not share it with other [s]nuts[/s] enthusiasts!? So the consensus is somewhere near 50-60% more evil... That'll work!

You guys are tough. You have to figure an additional 20% for his dismount routine. There you have it 75% more evil.

And I thought I was gonna get to see Plain Jane's bushy. [;D]
Link Posted: 12/23/2003 4:52:56 PM EDT
I gotta deduct 50% for the standard hand guards. Would look much better with the M4 style.

All I see are red x's.

Works now

Techier and functionaler yes. Eviler? Nah. The carry handle says evil to me. Dont get me wrong, I have one very similar but I love my Sendra preban 16" carbine with no goodies for pure evilness. Light too.

But I can now bring death more quickly and easily and what says "Evil" more than that? [devil]

I make a motion that 2% be added to the total given to this point for the use of para-cord (550 cord) on the sling.?

Definite point there BUT are we talking "evil looking" or "functionally evil"? You definitely gain a lot of FE points but at the loss EL points. JMHO
