Very cool.

I could see how it could be intimidating if you didn't know where to look.

Some excellent building tips to pick up from this OP.
Thanks for raising the bar, your rifle reflects your spirit.

Nice work. I did a very similar gas block/front sight modification on a few rifles...





This last one was pretty cool, but I almost barf every time I see that Zhukov handguard.
