If you like long handguards on long barrels, take a look at the new 16.7" NSR. Here is one on a 18" barrel:

I guess what I dislike about the rails is that HAVE to wear glove..for heat and the meat-grinder-like action that will chew up your hand. That and someone mentioned "how much rail do you need?"

Just my $.02

I'm a little late on keeping you all updated since I finished my build a few weeks ago.

I decided to go with the Midwest Industries Gen2 SS rail. I started off by chopping down the front sight post and then realized that wouldn't work. I had to go ahead and remove it and install the Midwest industries low pro gas block.

I went ahead and did everything myself. I had to pony up and buy some tools I didn't already have,but now I think I have everything I need to build my next one from the ground up. Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions. I appreciate it.

Sorry if the picture quality is bad. It was taken from my phone. Will try to get better ones later.

Very nice Black and Tan. I have the 13" Vtac, and if I were to do it again, the MI SSgen2 would be hard to pass up.

What optic if any are you going with? A T1 of H1 would work nicely with that lightweight setup. Have you had the chance to weigh it?

I haven't decided on optic yet. I would love to go with the Aim Point but man they are expensive. I haven't had a chance to weigh it yet. I will try and remember to borrow our portable scale from work soon and get a good accurate weight.
