Well here is my latest creation. Sinus and I took it out a few days ago and sighted the glass and the irons with some 62gr M855 rounds. Very impressed so far but I think I need to try some razor core 77gr through it. It has the makings of a tack driver.

Picture heavy!

Looks good! How do you like those Griffen sights?

I like the Atlas handguard. Looks good and doesn't cost $250. Only thing I would have done differently is a slightly raised ring around the QD sockets like the CMT hand guards.

I sure hope Aero gets a clue and makes them for their M5 platform. Not everybody likes or always wants the big Enhanced handguards that they make. I think they are losing out to the crowd that wants a thinner AR10 platform handguard, those people go with a different brand when that's what they want....like MI, SLR, or SMOS.

The Griffin sights work just fine. I bought these when they first came out and bought them at a promotion price that was too good to pass up. There are so many sights on the market today to choose from that it can be overwhelming and leave you wondering what advantage one really offers over the other. The griffin sights little "thing" that sets them apart is that the kit affords you the opportunity to choose between running them in the standard configuration or in the 45* offset configuration. I actually had these zeroed in standard configuration on my SMOS 16" patrol rifle build before I realized I could run any standard sights on that rifle and they would co-witness with the Trijicon MRO when flipped up. I decided I'd get more bang for my buck running these on my DMR at 45* where co-witnessing with a magnified optic was not an option. So I mounted the Griffin sights on this DMR and I am very pleased thus far. I haven't shot much with any 45* sights so I was impressed with the accuracy that I was able to achieve with the sights in this configuration. They work very well. The accuracy is excellent and only time will tell if that accuracy deviates over time. I'll keep you posted on that. The only draw back I've noticed so far is that in the "down" position, the rear sight does get in my way when grabbing for the charging handle. In the "up" (deployed) position there are no issues whatsoever. In summary I would absolutely say I do like these sights but again, with so many choices on the market I'm always inclined to try something new and different when it comes along and for me, economics is a definite factor. With so many great BUIS on the market, it really boils down to finding what gives you the most/best bang for your buck.

Yes to the Atlas S-One rail. My first impression of the rail was amazement at how light weight it was. My intention for this build was to create a DMR light weight enough that an average person wouldn't mind toting it around all day and yet still be able to achieve above average accuracy at longer ranges for the 223/556 round. The rail feels plenty stout enough to handle the job and this may be due to the design. It is slim enough and provides the right contours to eliminate flexing and promote rigidity to a point that I'm confident it will hold up to any rigors that I or any average shooter would expect it to. I am pleased enough with it to recommend to my family and friends as well as buy again myself.
