I went a slightly different direction but got to pretty much the same place...

Mine is 5.56, has an 11.5" bbl and will soon be sporting a brake and blast can though it doesn't really need it because it already shoots extremely nice.

The foxtrot Mike fm15 is also a DI gun just like the cmmg dissent, though I think I like what cmmg is doing with the recoil springs better.

I do question the exact niche the cmmg gun is going for too...

Realistically with the 6.5" bbl and no brace or hinge in it's factory weight spec it's going to wind up substantially heavier once it's actually in usable configuration.

I believe the fm15 11.5 started out around 6 pounds but once I threw on the hinge, tailhook mod 2 magnifier and dot it's definitely not 6 pounds now.

It's still extremely light and handy but it's definitely no feather weight.

I wonder if cmmg did the sling qd point on the rear below the picatinny interface like foxtrot Mike did, that sling point is darn handy

That looks great man.

Stock wise, theres a couple realllly light options.

Personally I'd love to see a Pic rail adapter to use the polymer B&T MP9 stock:

A close second (5.36oz + ~3oz mount) is the JMAC customs SS8:

That should put stocked weight at ~5.3lbs.

Yeah I'm a fan of the jmac and the mp9 stock would be even better in some cases.

This said, due to the nfa I can't "stock" this gun.

Also, OG tailhooks are completely unobtainable right now which shaded my decision.

(As did the sheer cost and availability issues of my original plan which was to do an ACR brace)

Eventually this gun will get a different ass end but for now this definitely works (other than my dot I bought being 6 inches high at 5 yards when I took it out for initial break in lol)
