    Gotta love ODG/RG builds. Peak aesthetic

    It’s green because I don’t live in the desert

    Aero M4E1 upper and lower, S-One hand guard
    Aero nitride BCG
    LaRue MBT-2S trigger
    Radian raptor CH
    Magpul SL stock
    Magpul MOE-K2 grip
    Magpul AFG
    Magpul type 2 covers
    Vickers padded sling
    PA 1-6 SFP optic
    BCM m-lok QD

    The Magpul MBUS sights might come off. Probably will get a stream light soon and a driven arms switch mount for the hand guard too. Any other recommendations on what could be changed?

    Not much point of BUIS without a quick release scope mount.

    *Fake edit: Not much point of BUIS if you are not going into combat or have an optic with etched reticle.*

    Looks great. I’d consider using an offset or 12oclock mounted red dot in place of the mbus sights if possible.

    For backup sights, always ask yourself – Can I actually use these if my optic is fogged or damaged without having to pull out a tool to remove the mount?

    Looks pretty good. If you want irons, just get offset ones. Those magpul are useless in that configuration.

    It’s pretty much a perfect do-it-all build. Mid tier builds like this are the best bang for buck in my opinion. The irons match the aesthetic well, but aren’t needed with the LPVO. Personally, I don’t like offset irons. I’d get that Streamlight and run this thing as is.

    Normally, the loudest sound on a battlefield is “click” of an empty mag or malfunction. I suggest we change it to the “DING” when your rear sight smacks into the optic directly above it rendering it useless.

    Finally a “first build” post where the rifle isn’t complete dogshit. Nice setup!

    Oh my god so many comments talking about the iron sights.

    They’re fucking backups.

    The scope comes off with ease.

    Nice rifle.

    I think you’ve built yourself a great versatile rifle. Well done!

    I’d ditch the irons until you can get an offset dot or a qd mount. You can’t use those if your optic goes down without taking out a wrench and removing that mount.

    I prefer the Atlas R-One rail over the S-One, you really give up rail space and options with the S-One…just my opinion.
