I've loved the Honey Badger since it's introduction but didn't really see the point in 300blk until recently. With a 30cal can in NFA jail and the crazy deals out there right now, I've been very tempted to attempt this build. @JRHorne is partially to blame for posting some smoking deals on Aero FDE parts HERE. The inspiration Build list: Aero FDE M4E1 Gen2 Enhanced upper w/ 9" MLOK rail $195 Ballistic Advantage 8" 1:7 .300blk barrel $110 Aero FDE lower $70 (incl $15 shipping) Aero gas block $20 Spike's pistol gas tube, black $15 AIM NiB BCG $99 MOE K grip $19 PSA LPK $40 BCM Mod4 CH $45 Griffin Paladin taper mount brake free after Trump bucks rebate Griffin Flash can $90 (allow shooting unsuppressed) Subtotal $703 The big question is the stock... SB Tac PDW pistol brace $240 (closest non NFA to a HB, 6.75" collapsed) LWRCi UCIW $88 (not PDW style, NFA +$250, cheap, definitely compact 6" collapsed) BAD Vert PDW stock $350 (seems damn near perfect, a little pricey, NFA +$250, 4.75" collapsed) Honey badger is 24" collapsed, the above with SBPDW and Griffin Alpha/Paladin suppressor would be 29.6". 2" of that is due to the 8" vs 6" barrel and 2" could be shaved off by going with the BAD Vert. Even at 29" it's still pretty darn compact considering my CZ Scorpion Evo3 SBR is 24" w/o suppressor. What do you guys think? Anything I'm overlooking? I will reload btw and have a 9mm can (subs only) & SBR lower I can use until my other item(s) get approved. I'm kind of leaning towards the SBPDW brace because of the simplicity of not SBR'ing another lower.
