    Pestilence Adjacent BFPU

    Published by Mike S on 04/06/2023 03:04:47

    Great BFPU finish and trench art furniture on this MDC 47 Trench Art Edition. Looks like MDC is also piloting a new trigger which was fit very well with a look and feel not far from the ALG AKT-EL. Few minor gripes: 1) As I understood it, some of the parts kits were matching, some were not. I had put a special request for matching given the price and it was not able to be fulfilled. 2) A bit more play/wiggle in the upper handguard/gastube fitment than I would like. 3) Sight post is a bit canted to the right but likely just my OCD. For reference, my pestilence build was absolutely perfect so my expectations were high, this one is maybe 90%-95% of the way there... Beyond those minor notes and opportunities for improvement, this is an great piece which I look forward to adding to my collection.
