Odd that the carry handle is on backwards. That's not a simple mistake, like having the hinge pin turned around.

Perhaps a previous owner had a different optic and mount on the rifle, where the carry handle would only fold into the carry position if it was ass-backwards.

Still very odd. I would hope that nothing else on the rifle is ass-backwards.

The carry handle is probably flipped to balance the carry center of the rifle with the Trilux mounted. Nice looking rig that sold at a good price.

Yep, and seller has zero feedback....

Assuming that there are no issue with the optic, and Bubba wasn't "creative" and damaged the barrel or receiver during barrel installation, $1375 was a killer deal, even if timing and headspace needs to be addressed.

With the SUIT on the rifle, it would be more out of balance with the carry handle mounted forward.

Agree that it was a good price, as long as everything is a good as it looks in the ad.

I was worried about zero feedback and area seller was from. Almost felt like it should have had Moses mags included.

Thanks--- I thought it was 2678--- but it does look more like 2378!!!
That would narrow down the numbers tremendously--- the highest Buena Park that I have seen is 2344.
