    Looks really nice, especially with a Troy/MBUS front sight.

    Extra weight at the front of the rifle adds up though. Though a few ounces might not look like much on paper, the handle difference is noticeable.
     
  4. Go for it. I think it looks great.

    What about a mid-length?
     
  7. Here's a pic of a rifle handguard on a middy 16". I know it's not the rail you've got, but it'll give everyone an idea.

    cheaper than the longer barrel, since I already have the rail (well, coming soon when they get them in stock).

    How much do the newer YHM rails weigh?

    Haven't paid attention to the new YHM offerings, but I remember the old ones were ridiculously heavy. It seems the newer rails have a pretty good reputation and following. Never particularly liked their aesthetics though.

    But yeah, a 12" rail looks pretty cool on a 16" barrel.

    light as fuck. I have the light weight mid-length for my 10.5" sbr, and the rifle length one should be coming soon (backordered):

    I had a quad rail that wasn't free floating before (2-piece) on the sbr and it was much heavier.

    I think it looks cool.

    Do you have a mid-length gas system?

    It's all good I don't really have money to buy one right now, I'm mainly just curious to see how much they sell for used.

    It looks fine.

    Unless you have a particular reason for the longer rail (for a sight/light config, etc) I'd go with a mid rail for less weight up front.
