POST A FRICKIN PICTURE!!!


What barrel is on that rifle?? Is it a bull Barrel?? If so that is where some of your weight is comeing from.

Are you gonna be useing this rifle mainly as a Varmit rifle where the heavier barrle might be useful or for IPSC where that extra weight may hamper you? Or are you just wanting a SHTF rifle.

ask nicely and you shall receive. but only if you ask nicely. if it were a bull barrel, I would have said bull barrel. use of the gun isn't important, weight is weight.. and I don't want it.

Hey Jednep, I finally got an answer on those composite handguards. They are Fobus M44 and they come in a 2 rail and 4 rail version.

Just in case you wanted to know.

I don't typically have the bipod or bipod adapter on it. just had it on for the picture and I only use it if I want to attempt more precise shooting. otherwise i just keep the vertical grip.. and plan on getting a light just for the AR setup in the future.

From Adco firearms and located at the FAQ: The Big Thread On FF & Railed Forends.


An olympic firsh is about 7 ounces lighter than the YHM, and it retails for around $150. If you don't mind dropping the cash the Daniel Defense's are signficantly lighter.

i know it's not. I didn't buy the gun factory new... I bought it from someone who bought the upper and lower separate and put it together. I am thinking it has the heavy barrel in it. but I don't know what others would work with this, and still keep the same type configuration. maybe another manufacturer makes a barrel for that.

Best way to get weight off the rifle is to replace that HBAR with one of these Gov't model 16 inch lightened barrels and then get a Daniel's Defense LITE rail. You will lose your mid-length setup to do it though.




But if you want more rail space you can get this longer LITE rail that is made to work with CAR-length barrels.

the reason I got the mid length to begin with was I had read several places about them having less issues with the gas system, due to it being mid length.. also I think something with recoil? not that the AR recoils hard. Also I like the longer sight picture.

Heck, if I have to spend $300 and up for a new quad rail, then however much more a dang barrel is going to cost.. probably $200-300, I'd be better off just keeping this gun how it is and buying a whole new AR.
