Built more like artillery than a rifle, note the gauge of the bolt lever on the far side (right arrow), the heavy bolt catch along the near side, and the stripper-clip guide at the rear of the ejection port. The top rail was machined with a channel (left arrow) in its center to accommodate sight line from the rear aperture.
The VLTOR rail system was attached like the grill on a locomotive. We were sure it would make for an uncomfortable hold, but we were wrong.
The muzzle brake did a great job in taming the beast. The four-sided rail surrounded much of the black synthetic stock. The front sight looked mighty sturdy to us.
