    Yeah that grip looks awkward, but without trying it, who knows. It's hard to imagine screwing up an AR trigger. Either it's standard "mil spec" or it's better, neither of which is that bad. Seems hard to screw up. Either issue is a quick and painless fix though.

    The reviewer mentions it's mil spec, "which means the trigger is absolutely miserable." So I guess he just hates the mil spec trigger.
    I went ahead and bought one. This isn't a buyer's remorse thread. I read up on it, and to me, seems like a pretty good budget carbine. Not many reviews on it though.
    Just looking to others with more experience as to how to make it better.

    Rail covers were the first thing I bought. Those rails felt like holding a cheese grater with someone applying weight.

    The trigger is likely to smooth out considerably after a couple hundred rounds, if you want to wait before spending money on a new trigger. Just depends on how "good" of a trigger you're going to want.

    Any tips for breaking in the barrel? I've read "clean, 5 shots, clean", "clean, 100 shots, clean", and "clean, 1 shot, clean".
    I'll probably do the 5 shot clean method to 100 rounds.
    I'll ask the gun shop tomorrow if they have any more guidance when I pick it up.

    It's not chrome lined though, so I'm pretty sure there's a break in period.
    Chrome lined barrels don't need a break in.

    Naw. Just run a patch through it in case there is oil in there from mossberg before you first shoot it. Other than that just shoot it normal.
