Very nice now the bugs have been worked out. A bit pricey though. About the same as an M1A. But it is very versatile.

How would it be to shoot it without the grip?

Like that.


Look at his hand though. You can not tell me that would be comfortable over a long shooting session. It would be like trying to hammer with a wood log, or something similar. I would rather go buy an M1A, get the messed up parts fixed, and save myself $500.

maybe build up the stock in that area, add some grip

I'm waiting to see if mud's receiver is approved

so with out the pistol grip you could have the detachable 10rnd mag. Why don't they make the stock attach to where the pistol grip was, would look like a tommy gun stock. Or have some crazy ergonomic curve to it like the P90 from FN, but with out the top part? They need to do that so I will buy one...

Because if it was mounted below the receiver, than it would protrude below the action of the rifle, and be an AW. I remember hearing from someone was not busted, but "advised" about getting a new stock for their bench rifle because even though it didn't have a pistol drip, the stock had a palm cut out that made the grip more vertical, and it was also below the action. CA has some screwy laws.....

If you fit a Monte Carlo style stock to where the trigger housing is now, your cheek weld elevation would be far too low to sight the rifle.

I've owned both AR's and M96's and while the M96 is cool, it's not as nice to shoot as an AR (and it's 2x the money)...

yeah, but it's our only real option for a semi .223 that can be useful should we ever get out of this crazy state.

Link broken, but it must be to a thumb grip which could be legal and a better grip than just the stock

I have to say my M96, which was A early gun . Has never jammed,I never set it back to the factory to get anything fix cause it aint broke.you will never get slam fire with a M96. Much cleaner than my ar's .I think form and function over all is better than my ar15's. .I just wish they make a belt fed .
from rob arm web site
The M96 comes with a two-stage trigger which allows the rifle to be shot accurately. The feel of the M96 is more like that of an M14 than and M16. Yet, the recoil of the M96 is less than that of the M16.

Thumb hole grip stock is NO NO...

(e) "thumbhole stock" means a stock with a hole that allows the thumb of the trigger hand to penetrate into or through the stock while firing.

It is explicitly defined in the SB23..
