    My main goal was to keep this gun lightweight and balanced. Secondary goal is to maintain reliability and avoid any conflicting gear that might cause a malfunction.


    I used the Tangodown stubby grip because I use my VFG as more of a hand stop, but I also like to use it against barricades to steady my shot. I have the bigger Tangodown grip and It is massive. The added value of the Tangodown grip is waterproof storage for a CR123 battery.


    I put a small section of Tangodown SCAR panel forward of the grip.


    Behind the grip is a Viking Tactics QD sling mount just forward of the receiver. This keeps my sling out of the way of my front end controls and also keeps the sling clear of fouling the charging handle.


    The sling is a padded Blue Force Gear Vickers Combat Applications Sling (VCAS). This sling is very comfortable, easy to adjust on the fly, and has no hanging tails.


    My weapons light is a Haley Strategic Partners Inforce WML. This light uses a single cr123 battery and produces 200 lumens. It had a momentary only light switch to maintain light discipline. 200 lumens is a good balance of throw and not to bright to blind yourself. The light has a relatively wide throw. I have the light mounted as far forward on the 9 o’clock rail as possible. It does cast a slim barrel shadow. This is one of the lightest small form factor weapons lights I have used. This is the future as LED flashlights continue to get smaller, brighter, and more efficient.

    This is probably a super NOOB question but the rear folding sight came out of the box in the 2nd slot on the top picatinny rail. Is this the standard set up? On my AR's I usually run the BUIS all the way back to the rear for more eye relief on my scopes.

    I was just wondering if there is a reason they do this?
