And a paddle mag release to boot...
All I want to know is.......future US civilian version?
You know now that I think about it, the charging handle might actually be a great thing. Your support hand is already right there anyway, so malfunction drills could be simplified vs an AR setup. Even better, no gas to the face when running a can.
There will probably be plenty of aftermarket handguards down the road, so the whole HKeymod complaint seems moot to me. On the trigger guard, I've always had a thing for KAC trigger guards. Kinda wish they were interchangeable on this.
