I wanted to use my afg (which is great) and have the option of keeping the rifle light as opposed to the swat anchor rail. So I had this sig hg laying around, looked at the way the afg would be angled and decided that the new angle of the afg would actually help ergonomics. I put rails on, drilled some new holes, used reinforcement plates for the screws with lock tight, put on the afg and rail covers to protect the rails (duh) and to keep the color pattern I had with the swat rail :wink:. As it turns out, the angle in my opinion is superb, it is lighter that the fishgills, sleeker than using the bulky rail kit sig sells for it, provides two comfortable grip areas, looks different but sweeeeeet. Hopefully this gives some people viable options while keeping it light as you probably have heard the saying "ounces equals pounds and pounds equals pain", while making one arm/shoulder more muscular. Now only if I can find someone to paint the hg magpul fde cough cough as I don't have the balls to do a sgt geardo paint job :lol:. That guy has my respect for doing a ballsy awesome job.

Thanks Scooby!

Great configuration! It just looks light weight!

I have an AFG myself and I put back more. It goes right along with the same way I have been shooting for years. I got some Classic hand guards as well and I might try something like you got... I would also have to paint them to! 8)

All I did was use rattle cans and some mesh for stencile. It's real easy. I can give you all the details if you want. :D

Do the Classic handguards have holes in the bottom for rails, or did you drill them yourself?
Yes. I had to make them bigger for my screws but they worked just fine. Although I prefer the quad rails with flip up f/r IBUS w/Eotech.

:lol: SGT I swear your paint happy. Tell me that set up isn't just more comfortable. I agree that you would like your troy and eotech more, just cause that set is sweet as hell. But....... you can do more running and gunning with zombies with a lighter set up :wink: :lol:. How did that ergo grip work out?

I am paint happy... I like the smell... :shock:

Yeah it wold be nice to have a lighter rifle for runnin and gunnin... but that's what my shotgun is for :lol:

I pulled on it a little too hard, to test it out. Snapped it off and smashed my pinky on the buttstock...lol. It was all rubber and cheap though so i ain't worried.

What type/length of rail

Just wonderin' if the Sarge and Scooby used nylon or aluminum rails?

flat or canted like the set SIG sells (but still out of stock for a couple of months)? IF you settled on flat or canted did you try the other as well?

length?

Thank you.

Regards,

R5

Racer, I tried both aluminum and poly rails. I ended up going with the poly just cause I felt like it. I used the 6 slot rails from ergo ( http://www.ergogrips.net/item-detail.cf ... N=67387966 ) and used the anchors that came with it. You will have to drill a extra hole though, but if you end up not using a rail the extra hole looks stock. The poly rails are tough, and they have been used and abused and hold firm as they are what are put on the magpul moe hand guards. Obviously I didn't use the sig angle rail things, reason being: too chunky and flimsy and ugly :wink:

I ordered via the link you provided way back when and it is sitting here just waiting for me to get off my backside and install them.

Been away from iNet access for awhile so a belated "thank you" to you Mr. Scooby.

Regards,
