    Do you mod your cars with all the parts at the same time?

    They're called "Projects" for a reason.

    When I first got my rail, I had nothing but a cheapo VFG and some rail covers. Now I added a light, and soon to replace the cheapo VFG with the AFG.

    My Point is, you don't mod a car all at once. In addition to the completely painted side skirts, you won't be buying new HIDs, getting a new blow off valve for your new turbo, on top of getting your new set of dorifto tires which you got at the same time you replaced all your interior lights with LEDs, including the backlight for all the neat little gauges you got to monitor your shit.

    Why do we have pockets? Half of mine are empty 99% of the time. But it helps that 1% of the time I do need it, just in case I need to put shit in it.

    My gun came with them on it. Figured I'd rather just have them than mess with it later. Just had the railguards on for a year but now I took the big step of adding the VFG :noes::bowdown:

    WHY DO PEOPLE BUY HOUSES AND NOT FIX THEM UP ALL AT ONCE

    WHY DO YOU TAKE TIME TO MAKE ALL THE CHANGES YOU WANT? ARE YOU A POOR FAGGOT?!

    In all honestly many people buy quad rail fore ends because they look cool.

    I kept the M4 handguards on my basic carbine for a couple of years just because I didn't have any desire to attach anything. Now I'm replacing my Mossy 500 with this carbine as an HD gun so I added the RAS to mount a light and a VFG.

    I honestly don't like the look of quad rails and was about to purchase the MOE handguard when a deal presented itself for rails I have now. I guess that's why I keep the rails completely covered.

    I asked myself the same question, and now my rifle looks like this:

    Don't let this happen to you.
    But in all seriousness, some people do it to add stuff later, some like the look better, some like the feel of metal under their hands better than the plastic handguards, etc. Nothing wrong with any of it.

    I don't think he was trolling, but instead of getting answers to a serious question half the people in here ended up trolling him. WMD is retarded lately, you guys say you want it to be more "pure" and not like the main forum, yet you guys constantly fuck it up with threads like this when you troll people asking legit questions and try to make people look like retards. In the end it ends up being one giant circlejerk where you all reassure each other how much cooler you are than the OP. Get over yourselves.

    My Moe handguard lets me attach a light and sling mount, I could do a VFG too. For my uses, I don't need anything else so rails would only make my rifle heavier and less comfortable for my support hand.

    I ordered mine from Magpul and they have the polymer rail sections that work well with the handguard. So far the polymer ones have held up just fine and they are nice because you can cut them up and use however long of sections you need. My light off it at the moment but here's the rail section I mount it too. My sling mount is one from a VTAC rail, it's simple and works. THT will hook ya up.
