Let’s get into the build…

I wanted to do a Systema PTW build from scratch. Most of my builds are SBR length setups with suppressors. The URG-I gave me the chance to do something different.

With that said, at first glance I was not a fan of the URG-I’s MK16 rail, which to be fair is arguably it’s most defining feature.

Over the months and months of seeing different builds with the rail, it grew on me – and I just so happened to get my hands on a genuine, NSN marked one.

The pics show my build as inspired by Garand Thumb, and with other accessories. It took a while to get my hands on a decent repro optic, almost forcing me to buy a real one!
