I am wondering how can you tell what parts a gun has and how significant is their impact on the gun? Are the stats associated with the parts reflected on the weapons stat card?

I'm not an expert but,If you have matching parts(say both parts are bandit on a slagga)it gives a hidden bonus.If the parts were both bandit it would give a boost to magazine size and a reload speed increase.(i may not be 100% correct)
Being unintelligent is the worst possible curse.

That's the jist of it. A Dahl stock on a Dahl sniper rifle will add an extra round to the burst count, for example. As for identifying parts, it's pretty easy to get the hang of. Each manufacturer has a distinct style. Hyperion and Maliwan are both very sleek, but Hyperion parts are more angular while Maliwan's are more rounded. Dahl parts look like military equipment. Jakobs tend to look more old fashioned. Bandit parts look poor quality in general. Torgue parts tend to look heavy and bulky, Vladof parts look somewhat like Russian weapons, etc.

jakobs grips add the most damage over any other grip, doesnt matter the manufacturer

Weapons with a torgue barrel fire faster, sometimes even giving it the minigun effect (shoot faster when fired continuously).

Wanted to make a topic tawhile back looking for more examples of these hidden stock attributes when I found out what a Dahl Stock does for a Sandhawk. Got anything?

That's the only one I know for certain off the top of my head.
