the thing that attaches to the upper and the hand guard to make one long rail
picatinny attaching to quad-rail thing-a-ma-bob
Ugly / gun rice
it actually serves a purpose, how is that rice?
why not just use the rail thats on the upper and the quad rail? its the same exact length
I was gonna say that MAYBE there was a height variation between the upper reciever and the forward rail system. But then it was carry over because the upper rail mounts to both.
Maybe it's a shooter's preference because it raises the height overall before placing an optic?
Or maybe if the front end if free float, it helps hold the zero of the scope incase the free float some how rotates?
That is the shoulder thing that goes up.
ARMS makes something like that, they call it a swan sleeve.
I've got a SWAN on my rifle. Yummy!
