Just got my new Bushmaster 16" A2 carbine. I've added an ACE skeleton stock and an EOTECH 512. All didn't go smoothly.

1) The sling attachment tightened at an unusual 45 degree angle to the stock. This may be a non-issue as I intend to get a tactical sling for the rifle and may not end up using this attachment. Anyone know what works with this kind of stock? I'm looking to be able to transition to my sidearm by slimply sweeping the rifle to my weak side.

2)The 6" DPMS see-through mount that attaches to the carrying handle doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence that it will stay tight and keep the optic where it belongs. Is locktite the answer?

3) I'm looking to replace the front sight with an XS tritium one. Are these the way to go?

4) I'm looking for a vertical grip and attachment rail combo? Any suggestions?

Thanks. Tomorrow is the break-in and zero day. RTAB1

Vertical grip + light = Surefire M900A Vertcal grip with seperate light = Tango Down Vertical Grip If you get the XS front sight realise the big dot will make the tritium further off from the tip of your front sight than the small dot. The sling attachment is at 45 degrees? You mean the reciever QD swivel mount? THat should not be. If that is what you are saying you installed the stock wrong.

Thanks. I will go with the small dot on the XS sight. Appreciate the heads up. As to the swivel mount, take a look at the CMMG site (www.cmmginc.com) under "stocks" and then again under the full lenght ACE stock. Notice how the rear attachment hangs normally. Mine is on a 45 degree angle (from 2 o'clock to 7 o'clock). When I tightened up the swivel the hole ended up such that when I put the attachment in it it is at a 45 degree angle. I am going to have to go cheaper on the flashlight for the moment if I don't want my wife to kill me with this thing! :O Any thoughts on the sling and locking down the EOTECH mount?
