    I dropped by MI over in waukesha to find a handguard for my bcm carbine. going to shave some weight.

    picked up a gasblock a bcm mod0 comp and a 15" lightweight keymod. got home realized i didnt have an armorer block for proper removal of the fsb. so next morning i pop back over there to get one and troy, the owner of MI, comes out of the back to say hi and show me his new scar17 creation and boy is it a beauty. a new keymod extension that ditches all the picatinny rails sides and bottom. it reduces the weight and width of the rifle. the sample i got to see was poly prototype and a mlok version is in the works.

    i explained what i was doing and he asked if i wanted to see something cool... i said of course. he calls one of his guys and out he comes with a super light weight keymod handguard with the top rail missing and replaced with keymod slots with a small picatinny section at the front for a sight and one at the rear for bridging optics if necessary.

    i thought MI free float tubes were stupid lightweight to begin with but it felt feather light like it didnt exist. so i asked if i could return the one i got the day before and wait till the new 15" super light was out. he said of course. so i picked up a gen 1 fftube and gas block for my 458 socom.

    i will be getting this new tube for my bcm in 15". this will give me an iron sight radius of a rifle length a long tube for getting a rest on any support i come across.

    unfortunately no pics of either but i got permission to yak about these. i will have pics of the scar rail soon and pics of the super light key mod soon.

    Similar to the slr but less rail on the top front nothing like the alg.

    The keymod mi is slimmer in diameter.
