    Hi Folks,
    I recently bought a Bushmaster O.R.C. and I am in the midst of adding a couple of components to make it more serviceable. One of the most important adds that I am making are the buis. With this particular rifle, I figure I have four options:

    Mid-length FF hand guard with front sight mounted on hand guard

    Replacing the milled gas block with a quad rail gas block

    Installing a non-FF hand guard and mount the front sight on the end(?)

    Buying the BMAS front sight from BushMaster that attaches to the Milled gas block.

    Which option would be more efficient?

    What I did was install a ff hand guard that went over the gas block, and used the mag pull buis. I am planning to eventually switch over to a lighter weight tube with less attachment points, but love the setup. the railed gas block and flip up front sight also works easy too. installing a standard front sight may prove slightly more difficult as it usually requires taper pins, which then hands you have to drill holes into the sight and barrel.
