Step 12: Optional Additions

The Handle/Rail of the MBAR-2 was specially designed to be compatible with many different additions. These include bayonets, vertical grips, and bi-pods which are shown below. I have also made a grenade launcher for it but I don't have any images for it. The additions will be posted in a separate Instructable.

Meh... I have a few ways for you to improve it.

1- Turn the blue 3d connector on the handle (the one that's boxing the trigger) so that the gap faces a different way
2- get a stronger trigger.  The gray rods look bent.
3- Forget all the attachments you have on it.

1.Why?
2.It looks bent from the earlier years of making ramrod type guns. It is very strong already.
3.The attachments are optional.
