Yes I have looked at Troy products. They look about the same as any of the other rail systems to me, but I have heard they are of high quality.
After a lot of indecisiveness, I went in the direction of standard mid-length hand guards with 2 axillary rails in order to mount my angled fore-grip and possibly a light.
Went with the Calvary C8, 2 6" Magpul picatinny rails and 2 sets of the Magpul XTM modular rail panels. I think that will allow me to shoot comfortably with in the realm of ergonomics that I had envisioned AND
keep the rifle reasonably balanced.
All that with shipping
for just over $50 from DSG Arms!
They were the only spot I could find all the pieces to the puzzle at. Hell, even Midway didn't have a mid-length handguard that I could use mounts with.
Midway has the NEW
Magpul MOE handguards (in all lengths)
listed on their website. The Carbine lengths are available now
, Rifle lengths available on 7/15/2010 and mid-length not until 9/15/2010.
So I figure if the current set up doesn't cut it, I got the Magpuls coming soon for a trial. I may just swap out anyways.
