its really a personal preference on feel , where do you hold the rifle at ? are you comfortable holding it at the magwell or do you hold it at the end of the handguard , do you wish your front hand would hold out further than that ?
I like the looks and the feel of the Rainier Arms handguard best but I wish it was a tad longer , I like to hold my rifle out in front a bit further but im ok with it as a mid gas its a tad longer . the magpul sights are great for the money and fairly durable but I like my troy rear sight on one of the other rifle better , it has a better sight picture than the Magpul but at 2X the $$$ . the magpuls are thick in the window area because they are plastic and they need to be to be durable . lots of great rear sights out there but if your just using them as backup sights magpul are hard to beat , if I was just using irons and no optics I would buy something else like troy ,diamond head , daniel defense, samson, or MI
