Rail decision on 6920
WellIi finally got my first black rifle, a Colt 6920. hell yeah. I'm looking to ditch the heat guards for a rail. I like the DD Omega rail for ease of install since I'm new to the AR world. Anybody have experience with em? The site says they are free float and can be installed even by a noob like myself. My question is does anybody see any major advantage of a true free float rail over the two piece Omega? From what I've read the Omega locks up damn tight and most reviews are positive, what do you guys think? Thanks!
DD Omega 7.0 all the way if you plan to do it yourself.
DD Lite requires more work.
For a drop in rail, you really can't go wrong with a KAC RAS. I know that didn't answer your question, but it's a good rail, and it can be had for fairly cheap. Hopefully someone will chime in on the DD rail. I don't have any experience with them, but from what I've read, folks really like their products.
Get the Troy or the new Midwest Industries.
You can put rail where you need it, and the install is pretty easy.
I would get an 11" or 12" rail so you can extend your grip on the rifle.
Shave the FSB with a dremel, its real easy, then install a Centurion or Rainier Evolution or Troy alpha. They all use the stock barrel nut and are great rails.
Thats my $0.02
My DD omega is real nice and tight.. Feels rock solid to me. Easy install and you dont have to cut up anything. I say great product.
I have the DD omega 7.0 on my 6920 and it is easy to install and rock solid but im really thinking about changing to the MI gen-2 free float extended carbine rail. This rail will give you more grip area and get rid of that long looking barrel and cover the m203 cut.
