    UW -

    My daughter is about 5' 8" and yeah the rail is probably long enough for her to go fully extended. We did play around with a more extended left hand grip, elbow raised and less bent, wrist position modified - and there was still plenty of room on the 12" rail at that point.

    I get what you're saying about rail lengths. I wonder how much of the longer-length mindset has come from decreasing the rail outside diameter. Its not just weight at that point, it's how your wrist and hand connect with the rail and how that relates to elbow position. I'm sure there are some fancy biomechanical reasons that some of these styles work comfortably for some rails, but are clumky with others.

    RR,

    Your daughter looks like she knows how to handle herself and that weapon. Nicely done.

    I mocked up a new CMT Tactical UPUR-2 with the DD 14.5" and a Centurion CMR 11" The Fortis RED is just a place holder until I figure out a muzzle device.

    I think we may have a winner. I know I wanted to keep this lightweight, but she's really liking the CMT Receivers. I don't have a spare lower to match, so I'll have to buy one, but just for shits and giggles, I'm going to weigh a forged set vs this billet to see how much weight we are adding.

    The CMT Upper weighs 8.5oz without the dust cover, compared with a Mega Arms Forged Upper without dust cover/forward assist weights in at 6.95oz.

    Not sure I'm going with the Billet since the weights will compound with the lower. Picked up a BCM .625 gas block and a gas tube today (not pictured) but mocked up:

    I kind of hit a snafu today.

    The gas block in not pinnable as I don't have a jig, and neither does Rainier for a .625 gas block. Since it's covered with the rail, I could just use the set screws, or go with a .750 barrel. Eh. I suppose this isn't going to be run hard so the set screws will likely work just fine. I guess I'm stuck in the mentality of all the guns I own "should" stand up to abuse.

    Well, this project has been scrapped and going back to the proverbial drawing board. The CMR Rail did not work for her. However, she did look at my Rainier Arms NiB gun and liked that setup, so I may swap out the furniture to pink as she requested. She doesn't like the setup up as far the weight goes, so I'll have to see what I can do to cut the weight down.

    Definitely think about BCM's 14.5" ELW-F with 10" or 13" KMR. The whole setup is light, but it feels even lighter due to the barrel taper which keeps the weight closer to the shooter.

    Good question.

    I knew you were a BCM shill! I keeeed I keeeed

    Right now I have a mock up going with some of the pink furniture. I may swap the handguard out with a KMR like you suggested.

    I'm just happy we decided on a receiver set. Ditched the Billet idea because of the weight, and she started eyeballing my BAD Lowers, so I'm glad she was distracted by the NiB receiver. Even added the CMC Pink trigger.

    I'm not a huge pink fan, but that's looking nice with the failzero coated receiver.

    Shit, if I'm a BCM shill I need to contact Paul Buffoni and inquire where they've been sending the checks, because I haven't been getting them

    I'm glad my wife likes black, not sure I could handle that much pink next to my black and wood in the safe. I'd have to get her own fortress of solitude to keep it in. You sir, are a saint.

    With as many as I have in the safe, this thing sticks out like a sore thumb. But hey whatever gets the wife into shooting.

    Calengor - this is a botch job some local guy did, not Fail Zero, which is why it looks more white than NiB.

    That thing looks white and pink. I wonder if you're able to swap out some of the other small parts with pink. I wouldn't want to pay to cerakote small parts, doesn't seem like it's worth the money. But whatever you wife wants I guess!!
