Long story is this rifle USED to be a S&W M&P 15 SPORT. I just swap the upper with a fixed carry handle I got somewhere. The rail is actually meant for an AR-10, it even says so on the side. That's why it seems too long for the carry handle.

The stock is Brownell's

I didn't want to get an A1 grip because I plan to actually shoot this a lot and the older grips just don't have the angle I like
Really nice - although you didn't want to use the A1E1-style upper? You could have bought one from Brownell's, and it would have matched the receiver style of the Colt 723 carbines that Delta/CAG used during the late-1980s and early-1990s. Plus, I feel like it's gonna be annoying to shoot that gun without a brass deflector.

As for the grip: That's easily replaceable if you have a long enough screwdriver (I swap out pistol grips on my AR lowers all the time). If I were you, I'd buy an A1 or A2 grip for display, and then put on that Magpul grip only when you take the rifle to the range.
Cry "Havoc," and let slip the hogs of war.
