    Which will it be?

    I've built these two Mega Arms rifles with accuracy in mind. I actually intended to build an SPR but I didn't realize until after I built the first rifle with a 16" FN barrel that SPR's typically have 18"-20" barrels. So I did what most of us would do, I built another rifle with an 18" Mega barrel (swapping the barrel out would've been too easy). So now I have two predominantly Mega Arms rifles (see the build list and you'll understand) and I'm having a difficult time deciding which one I want to put some glass on. I may have to sacrifice one of these two builds to finance putting glass on the other.

    My question to you is, which one would you keep and put the glass on?

    The one with the 16" FN barrel has the monolithic quad rail which I really like.
    The one with the 18" Mega barrel has the M-Lok rail with the Wedge-Lok system.
    See if you can note all the differences and tell me which you'd pick and why. Pics of both below the build/spec lists.

    Both. Keep both. They both look so good.

    It's like having two kids and deciding which kid to give up for adoption.

    Scope on the longer barrel? Scope on the most accurate piece? Save up and scope 'em both!:D
