Thank you. I'll post some more pics in the next day or so once I get the 'extras' mounted. I want to give the Krylon a few days to cure.
As far as the weight: I'm probably not the best person to answer that question. Reason: I was an M60 gunner for a decade and my rifle of choice is a 1959 FNFAL L1A1.
The M60 weighs 23 pounds (empty) and my L1A1 weighs 13.1 lbs (empty) - so the 6.5 pounds of the 995TS, to me, doesn't feel heavy at all.
I have 2 basic complaints on this weapon.
1) The round capacity.
2) I can't reach the safety lever with my right thumb without changing my grip. Going to have to try and mod that.
Well damn, I was a SAW gunner for a few years, and the primary rifle I own is a Golani, so that's a bit of relief. 6.5lbs ain't bad at all for a carbine.
As for the round capacity, think of the bright side- it'll instill fire discipline, so make every shot count! The safety issue shouldn't be too used to fix, given a good metal worker can fabricate a new safety lever.
