Words and Pics: Rich Norman

This is to be the final update on my AFSOC-inspired Block 1.5.

I’ve already set wheels in motion on a new project, so this particular PTW will be shedding its skin in the foreseeable future.

Something that’s already been shed is the Arredondo magwell. That may come back at some point, but not on this build. Moving in the other direction, the build now sports my EOTech EXPS3-0 in tan.

An updated parts list is below.
