I guess they figured that because it uses a Picatinny quad rail instead of a modular rail (Keymod or M-LOK), and an ACOG rather than some type of LPVO, it's not exactly the "latest and greatest"...

Haha, no, actually, I plan to change out the A2 grip at some point. Just haven’t decided yet what will replace it (either a Magpul grip of some kind, or maybe BCM).
