Some quick shots of my personal rig. It includes the lightweight 22oz Elite Tactical Advantage Rhino quad rail, Sig diopter rear sight, Knoxx stock, and the rest is the usual suspects (light, laser, etc.)
Great looking rig. I have a donor rem 1100 that I'm thinking about converting to a home defense weapon. Where did you get the rail? The sighting system seems so much higher than the original. What does that do to your poa/poi?
Last night I changed out the ho-hum red laser with the awesome green laser. It's dialed in for ~15 yards. The sights are ~1" off the rail. That's not too bad considering the pattern 15-30 yards, plus given that AR's are like 2.5" it's well within spec.
It's a tool that offers first look, first advantage. Now the shooter can use BUIS, an EOTech HWS, flashlights, laser sights, etc. The thought is that if you've got to take down a baddie within 25 yards, it's advatnage shotgun. And definitely afvantage shotgun with the Rhino rail.
Not to mention that it's as tough as they come. Check out the picture of the Rhino rail being driver over by a truck!
My New SPX.
She ran 98% yesterday on WWB 100rd Value Pak of #8 bird shot
I had 2 FTE out of a 100 plus rounds and I was tryin to get it to fail.
I was shooting over my head with one of the FTE and from the hip on the other. It eat the 00 buck and slugs like candy and at 25 yards I shot the
X out of the 10 ring with a slug
Sweet!!! Let me let you know though, those safeties fail in the safe position all the time and that small stock bolt handle gets to be a pain. Check this out, it's a killer replacement safety and bolt charging handle combo.
Also just an inquiry. It seems like you have your laser presure pad switch on the foregrip, and the light switch up front of the fore grip. Would it be better, tactically, to be able to turn off your light faster?
