    :dunno:

    still undecided on the handguard, that one looks pretty cool

    I want a long top rail, a stubby VFG, but I don't want full rails at 3, 6, and 9
     
  10. Get a VIS. It's what all the not-poor people use.

    too much rail
     
  13. It's not too much rail. You're just poor and trying to justify NOT needing it.

    These are the ones i'm currently considering

    I know nothing about them aside from what's obvious, never handled any one of the three.

    I want it to be free floating.

    I want a minimum amount of rail.

    I assume the modular picatinny system is reliable enough because you see the JP handguard all over 3gun.

    I want them to cover my gas block, but i'm not sure on length, the barrel will be 10.5" with an M4-2000 on the end of it.

    Weight is somewhat of an issue as I would like to keep this rifle as light as possible.

    Thoughts/Suggestions/Opinions?
     
  16. I love the JP tube. It's light, sturdy, gives you total control over rail placement, and is really pretty cheap with the Brownells discount. I don't know what gas system a 10.5" barrel uses, but I'm sure if a carbine length JP tube doesn't cover it, a middy will.

    I saw a carbon fiber one a while back that was supposed to be really light. It had matte finish on it and a rail along the whole length of the top. Interesting, but pretty expensive and seemed a little gimmicky.

    I wish I could go finger fuck all of these before making a decision :hs:

    You'll need a middy length handguard to cover the gas block. I think the JP/VTAC is probably the best option. The Troy costs a fair amount more and is ugly as fuck IMO if that matters. It doesn't offer anything over the VTAC as far as I'm aware.

    The CAS-V looks cool, but it's made for a fixed front sight base so your gas block will be exposed.

    Oh shit, it is isn't it. The rifle in the first post just has a folding front site/gas block.
     
  20. $163 for the middy JP from Brownells.

    That's not bad, the JP is a pretty attractive option. Any idea what it weighs?
     
  22. JP says 13 oz on their website for the middy. (I believe that includes everything you need to mount it, not just the tube) I don't know if I've ever weighed mine.

    YHM makes a nice one if you're budget conscious. I have several on my guns and the one like you want on my SBR and it is quite sturdy, you have a ton of rail placement options and its inexpensive.

    They have two options, one with fixed rails, http://yankeehillmachine.com/store/product561.html

    And one that is just a tube, comes with rail sections you can add anywhere, like the JP. Its about half way down this link (they dont have its one page) called the "customizable free float system" http://www.yhm.net/store/forearms.html
