My New LaRue

Thought ya'll might like to see my new LaRue 5.56 Stealth Sniper System: on bottom. My RRA 6.8 on top. All i need to complete this set up is the new TA31H-68 for my RRA 6.8. Think i will switch that Doctor Red Dot onto that TA31H optic since the 6.8 is my hunting/battle/home defense rifle. I'm pretty sure i can switch it over to any ACOG can't I? I need to delve deepers into this. I like that Surefire Mx962.... But i don't think i'll leave it on. Think i will have to go with another E2D LED Defender and a LaRue offset Mount. I love it on my 6.8, i have it on the other side in this pic. I should take some more pics of that setup. The 5 Lumen is very nice for stalking through the woods in the early morning.That Mx962 is just too much. I'm into the LED Small profile lights now.

Can you take a picture of the other side of the lower?
I wonder how much other Larue is not made in Tx. They advertise how bad ass they are at machining stuff and how its all made in Texas, even having a big Texas logo on the other side Its clearly machined on the other side that its machined in Oregon due to the BATFE regulations.
I'm saying that Texas based LaRue should at least manufacture their shit in Texas, or at least don't advertise that they do when they don't.
Just to clarify things. I never said I didn't like Larue. I just don't like the whole "Made in the dead center of Texas" thing, when clearly it was made in Oregon. Its kind of like going to Sears and buying a Craftsman tool, only to find out its "assembled in the USA with foreign made parts"
Honestly, it could just be that Larue doesn't have a FFL manufactures license and therefore couldn't legally make it. I googled the name of the company on the side of the receiver and it looks like they are a contract manufacturer for private runs of machined lower receivers.


They have some cool looking skeletonized lowers on their website.
