| VLTOR MUR, BattleComp 1.0 and DD lower parts kit just came in.
Have the Daniel Defense 11.5" CHF barrel w/ low-profile gas block ordered and hope to have that by next week.
Now I just need to figure out which rail to get. Still can't decide... Looking at the DD OmegaX 9" (11.7oz), DD Mk18 9.5" (14.5oz), DD Lite Rail 10" (12.5oz), or Troy TRX 11" (20.8oz). I would actually prefer to get the Troy since it's 11", because I like longer rails and less exposed barrel. It's also about half the cost. However, 1.3lbs for a rail is simply unacceptable. In AR shooting, ounces equal pounds and pounds equal pain and fatigue. No thanks.
The main winners are the OmegaX 9" and the LITE RAIL 10". If they made a 10" OmegaX, it'd be a no-brainer. The OmegaX has the advantage of having integrated sling swivel holes, whereas the LITE RAIL would require me to buy a separate mounting adapter. The Mk18 is a nice happy medium, but it's FDE color only, and I'm thinking I want to make this rifle green, so not sure it's worth it.
