I hear those stocks make it easierto shoot. Funny how that work stupid law to make guns safer but while doing so the guns got more accurate and deadly qoverment paving the way for those that can't.

Looks great.

Thordsen is not too bad once you get used to it. My only gripe is that i find it does change the balance of the rifle.

I got used to the Thordsen. It certainly beats the alternatives.

Hmm, ... Keymod. I can't stand the look of those holes. They remind me of the adjustable shelving at Home Depot or Costco. At least unused M-Lok slots are just slots.

Beats the hell outta fixed mag. At least when he runs out of ammo, he can reload.

I don't think so. The standard pistol grip is much more natural and ergonomic. With the Thordsen, you really have to get your thumb webbing and grip way up in there to run the gun right. I have big hands but I'd think someone with small hands might have a problem.

I like the Thordsen, I just wish they made a shorter version. One with the butt just about up against the buffer tube

Is a big deal to shoot an ar without a flash hider ? Will it be expensive to thread an ar barrel later on if the laws change ? Thinking of doing an ar build.

The flash hide really does nothing for shooting the gun but some compensaters do reduce recoil and muzzle riase.
