thats the reason for my question. i can't find the tactical anywhere local, and it's a $75 ffl fee if i order it. but if there is some fitting that needs to be done, i don't want to chance messing it up. so i'll just spend the exra $$ and order the tactical. thanks for the help, and if anyone knows where i might be able to find a tactical in SO CAL please let me know
As has been said, you can get one with many of the upgrades you want already installed. If you pick up a used model needing parts added to make it like you want, they are not that hard to do. Whatever you get, learn how it works and how each part affects the next before swapping them out.
