Default 10" rail 14.5" barrel..pic thread request

hey ya'll…

I'm going back and forth between which rail i want…

I'm going to get the BCM KeyMod rail on a 14.5" barrel…but I'm stuck between whether I want the 10" or the 13"…I'm pretty sure i want the 13" but Im contemplating the 10"

i was hoping anyone with a 10" rail on a 14.5" barrel could post pics of their setups so I can decide whether or not I want the 10" one or not..

bonus points if its a BCM KMR rail...


DISCLAIMER: yes, I am aware I can do a google search for this…and I have. and it led me to other forums of people asking the same thing. I just still can't decide.

I replaced my Geissele MK3 10" with the Geissele MK5 13". I just prefer longer rails.
It looks more sexier to me .

God. Thank you.
That's exactly what I was looking for...

Okay, I've now decided on the KMR13" by BCM on my 14.5" middy!
I'll pull the trigger on purchasing it soon and I'll keep y'all posted with pics when she's done.
Thanks!

Longer rails make for a greater (iron) sight radius. That's a legitmate advantage. Plus, most of the good stuff is trim enough to result in little more than a negligible increase in weight.

Apart from specialized projects, there's very little disadvantage in going with a longer handguard.
