Updates to my light weight build, found the rail system on ebay and its far lighter than any other rail I have ever put in my hands, its weighs about the same as my moe set up did. They are rock solid as they lock down to the barrel nut with 4 set screws and there hard coat anodized

I also added some extended take down pins.

Have you taken a look at this offering from Troy? Its 13" long yet much lighter than the MOE.

True but the return is worth more than the extra $100.

It's kinda one of those things where you step back and think, do I really need this part or that part, how functional is it really, and can I be spending this money on something that could improve my shooting over something that is pure cosmetics?
