    I'm want to trim some fat from my RRA midlength that currently has a Surefire M85. Are there any lighter, high-quality rails out there?

    People seem to like the DD and Samson rails. If it were for my own rifle I'd probably try a PRI tube... you can put the rails where you need them and leave the rest empty.

    For the life of me, I can't find the weight of the M85 rail. It's been suggested on arfcom that the LaRue is the lightest at 12.8 ounces. I figure I can upgrade for about $175 after selling the M85 but if it's only to shave a tenth or two, it's not worth it.
