ok so im waiting on my SBR tax stamp for my 10.3" CMMG ar15
well i have an idea of what kind of free float i want on it. i know for sure im getting a Yankee hill machine (YHM). there are three differnt ones im thinking about and i wanted your advice on which one you guys think looks best and any pros and cons you can think of.

OK so the first two have a low profile gas block with a flip up front sight that is on the forearm as you can see. But option #3 has a flip up sight gasblock

so is there any advantages of having a integral gasblock/front sight (like #3) or is the forarm mounted one going to be pretty much the same. one good thing about option 1 and two is i can remove the sight if i wanted to. on #3 i wouldnt be able to without switching gas blocks.

so besides the mechanicle stuff which one looks best? Also feel free to post other forarms but it has to be either specter length or mid-length i DONT want a carbine one.

It depends on what optic you are putting on it.

I don't own an ar, but #1 looks at least 10 years ago, #2 looks mall ninja tacticool, and #3 looks sleek and functional without looking gaudy.

#1 is 12oz

#2 is 12.9.oz

and im waiting on YHM to tell me how much #3 weighs, it wasnt listed.

but i bet it will be very close to #1 and maybe just a little lighter since it has less area because of the cut out for the front sight.

You gonna put a VFG on that shooter?
it depends on the balance point. i might just do a magwell grip but if it balances forward of that then i will get a VFG on it

I voted for the middle one (#2).

Don't know why but I like the looks of those rib cage forearms. I say that because that is what it reminds me of, a rib cage. :lol:

YHM also came out with this one, i like it alot but they didnt have a suitable pic i could use to photoshop it into an SBR. but it would look very similar to #2
