Wat does you think?
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.
Go for it. I think it looks great.
What about a mid-length?
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.
it will be a YHM light rail
putting that on my 10.5" SBR
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.
and fuck aesthetics imho. i put rail covers on anyways. I like the front cover though for them. ordered 2 of those
I think it looks cool.
Do you have a mid-length gas system?
carbine length I believe
because of this thread, I switched my troy 7.0 on my sbr 9mm for a 9.0 that I wasn't using anymore.
I'll take that 7" off your hands, what's your price?
I'm not sure If I want to sell it.
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.
was the 7 a 2-piece?
they are both free floating 2 pc troys.
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.
