Any recommendations as to what to look into, gas block and handguard? Not overly interested in lots of rails on it, but must be able to put bipod under it. Im leaning towards a 10" unless theres good reason to look at a different length. Thanks in advance for any help.
Your right, a low profile gas block is first, then at least a 9" rail to cover it nicely. Rails are all the buyers preference. I have quad rail a and smooth free floats. They should all have hole taped into them so you can add rail panels where you need them. If all you want is a bi pod then Get a float with a flat top rail with the ability to screw in panels underneath. Check out Diamondhead, it's my new favorite.
