Flex Your Guns 2015 Photo Contest: Week #6

We’re over halfway through with the 2015 Flex  Your Guns photo contest!

This week’s entry is a handy AR15 vSBR with an uncommon stock.

DZ’s AR15 with NEA Stock


  • Head Down Products billet lower
  • Karri’s Guns 8.25″ upper
  • Magpul XTM panels and handstop
  • YHM front sight
  • LaRue IronDot rear sight w/ PFI SOPS-Compact reflex sight
  • Magpul K2+ pistol grip
  • NEA CCS stock
  • Magpul BAD Lever
  • BCM Gunfighter charging handle (medium)

This is a nice rig that collapses really small, but suffers from short LOP. The Magpul K2 grip helps make it somewhat more comfortable to use.

Shorter LOP is a common issue with vSBRs, especially those designed for every day carry. The K2 grip is a good idea, and one that I may try on my .300 Blackout AR15 pistol this year.

I always like it when people try new accessories and components. The NEA stock made a splash when it was announced, but it was difficult to acquire. Long lead times and import duties on top of an already premium price kept it off of a lot of builds, but I am glad to see one on a real project.

Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • At least one photo of your firearm. Send me photos of short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, point defense weapons, SMGs, AR pistols, or any type of firearm that would fit the theme of this blog.
  • Any details about it that you think other readers would find interesting, such as barrel length, important or unusual components, rarity, etc.
  • One reason you love it or hate it.
  • Email photos of your gun to [email protected]

Here are the contest details:

  • I will choose the firearms to feature each Thursday by myself.
  • You can enter as many times as you want, but once your firearm is featured on a Thursday you can’t submit again for the same contest.
  • Once we hit 10 weeks, the readers (that’s you!) will vote on who wins out of the pre-selected firearms. My own submissions (if any) won’t count.
  • The contest will end on June 18, 2015.
  • Judging will start on June 19, 2015 and close at 11:59PM CDT June 24, 2015.
  • The winner will be notified on June 25, 2015.
  • If your photo is chosen by the community you’ll have five business days to email me a picture of the firearm you submitted plus a piece of paper with your email address written on it. This is very important to make sure the firearm is actually yours. Our friends in law enforcement may enter their unit’s firearms as long as they can provide the evidence linking their email address to their photo.
  • The winner will get their gift card via email, so make sure you send me your photos from a valid email account!

Show us what you’ve got!

    Highly recommend the K2 (or K if you prefer). Definitely helps immensely with short LOP! I was pleasantly surprised how much more comfortable it made my SB15’ed AR.
