    Does anyone have any links on for reviews or write ups done for the Troy MRF? I did a Google, but that sucked! LOL

    Bare with me here but, does this mean that if I get the 7" rails, I can't use my 11 rib KAC panels on the L and R side? Say it aint so...

    You may have to do some trimming/relieiving of the panel to engage the clip is what I'm reading.

    I just got one for a customer, mrf-di, I was very very impressed! Excellent fit, locked up super tight. Very worth the ~$150

    I'm sure they are, but I'm done with non-free floats. :)

    The DI look like this........this is the Samson version

    This is the Samson MRF free float, same b4 they changed the design as the Troy MRF

    The KAC panels were a tight fit on mine and since these are the rifle length rails they can't slide forward because of the ladder style covers and the definately can't move backwards.

    Did you do any "relieving" of those panels? I was planning on putting 11 rib panels on the L and R side, a 6 rib on the B w/ a VFG.

    No I did not.....as you can see I have the panels "backwards" and the clips didn't engage. Since the panel was "captured" I didn't mess with releiving any material off of the backside. As I said in the post above they slid on the rail real TIGHT and can't move back and forth between the back of the rail and the ladder panels.

    Now on a 7" rail I would guess you'll have to get some material releived off the backside so the clips will lock in.
