Taste

There was a time when any modern sporting rifle I'd own would have had to have had all of the features banned by the AWB.

Now my motives for having one feature or another are based on functionality or historical accuracy.

For example, the XM177E2 clone is missing a bayonet lug, but has a flash-hider and collapsable stock because that's how they really were.

The 6.8 guns are being changed over to fixed stocks because they just feel better.

The purple gun is in flux.  It's going to retain a collapsible stock because that's what the furniture is.  But the rest of the configuration is subject to change.  Ceracoat® in purple for the upper and lower are likely in its future as well.
