However, what makes one of the pics extra special is the L119A2 it features. It includes a few items which, to my knowledge, have yet to be seen in reference pics.
There’s always a note of caution about photoshoot pics and it’s entirely understandable. With that said, this L119A2 just seemed…authentic. I don’t think I saw anyone dispute its pedigree on any of the groups I’m a member of. While it exhibits some new accessories, they are wholly believable and nothing about the build screams imposter.
So, it was good to see that those gut reactions were spot on. I now have it on good authority that the L119A2 is legit, and so my Comprehensive Parts and Accessories List has been updated accordingly.
Assessment of salient L119A2 parts:
- Manta Suppressor Cover V1
- BCM Kinesthetic Angled Grip
- Magpul Windowed Pmag
- Taran Tactical Innovations Base Pad For AR 15 .223 30/40 Round PMAG Magazines
- RDS on 45 degree offset mount
- Original Ergo Grip
- Magpul ASAP QD or similar receiver end sling plate
- Magpul MOE SL stock
We’ve seen the Manta Suppressor Cover before (but not in FDE) and it’s possible we’ve also seen the BCM KAG. The Taran Base Pad is new to me (and usefully allows the RS user to carry 5 extra rounds per mag).
Speaking of the mag, it’s a Pmag – not an Emag; yet more evidence that Pmags are now dominant.
The black Magpul MOE SL stock is also new and it’s this I’m most excited about – purely because it’s a relatively modern stock when compared to the CTR etc.
