The Shadowstrike muzzle provides excellent sound suppression for stealthy flanking movements around the map.

For Underbarrel, we will equip the FTAC MSP-98 Handstop, which improves recoil control, allowing for faster and more accurate follow-up bursts.

Since the ammo capacity of FR 5.56 is only 25, we will rock a 45-round magazine for better performance in long engagements.

The JAK Glassless Optic offers precision when shooting and also gives you firing aim stability.

To complete the build we will use the Renetti with the JAK Ferocity Carbine Kit which allows for full auto firepower, tactical stance, bullet velocity and range, and aiming idle sway.
