I was looking at a picture of the LMT MARS-L as adopted by New Zealand and I was remembering how not that long ago I read all sorts of people saying that the future of the AR was going to be monolithic uppers. Greater rigidity, accuracy & precision, no top rail gap interfering with optics … Read moreWhere are they now? Monolithic Uppers
The Hog Saddle has been out for a few years now .
