    I’ve got a few sights laying around, as a result of Trudy’s property theft (Eotech, Acog, Mepro, Aimpoint, etc), so I’ll keep playing around to see what works best.
    Thanks for the update Jeffman. I have SL8-4 short rail version with no rear factory sights so I should have no issues. My concern was the eye relief.

    I have heard if you have big hands the thin hole stock is awful. I take a 2l work glove and I have concerns. Anyone w experience w these that have large hands?
    Envy green is not a color well worn. Might want to quit while you're ahead

    I don't think many people would be able to get their thumb all the way into the hole in the stock, meaning that manipulation of the safety in the traditional manner will not be possible while holding it this way. Alternatively, you can run it with your thumb same side (like many precision rifle shooters do). I haven't noticed a reduction in recoil control doing this, however, you will have a slightly less firm grip on the rifle this way (although still very workable). The hera arms lower allows the addition of an ar-15 type pistol grip.

    From some web searches, it looks like some people have tried their hand at plastic welding to remove some material from the stock to form it into a complete pistol grip. Apparently, it is not too tricky to do this although I'll have to look into it some more. You could potentially try your hand at this and if it doesn't work out just buy the hera lower I suppose.
