The Option Zero combination stock and handgrip also included a secondary well for a spare magazine. The release was located just rearward. As per state compliance regulations, the stock was not immediately adjustable but could be lengthened by adding spacers. An oversight, multiple-length bolts should have been supplied.
The muzzle brake kept the gun stabilized, and the ports shoved gases to either side so they didnít kick up dust. Bleed holes in the top of brake (arrow) added some downward pressure.
The M-Lok handguard allows easy placement and removal of Picatinny rails.
