Decisions on Bula XM21 configuration.

Still working on the configuration of this XM21. Just can't seem to find what I am looking for.

Awww... I really quite liked her in the original configuration you had. With the Magpul PTS stock, and FDE Leupold MK4. Although, I wasn't sure about the grip. I might try out an HK 416 grip, myself... https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/HK-4...rage-14p33.htm Otherwise, I thought you pretty much had it.

I am liking this configuration and I think it will remain.
I did not like the Magpul buttstock at all on this chassis.
For my use shooting prone, the XLR as in these photos is perfect.
In fact, I just ordered another for a different project.

I like it like it is too Art. Have you done anything to enhance accuracy; bedded the stock, unitized the gas system, trigger work? Curious how she groups with the 18" barrel.

Pretty much everything but bedding. Running 1.0 - 1.25 with 175gr smk handloads. Trigger was nice from Bula, but I did drop it in the jig for a quick once over with and Arkansas.
