RRA or DPMS NM free float handguard?
I've got a 20" bushmaster gov't profile upper I'd like to free float for a "more" accurate rifle. I have no need for a tacticool rail infested handguard, so I was looking at the RRA or DPMS National Match free float handguard. This seems the place to ask. Does anyone have experience with these? I have the tools to install it myself.
I'm not intending to build a DCM or Highpower rifle out of it. For now it's just to start working on building an accurate rifle.
Both DPMS and RRA use a three piece FFT. Special barrel nut, locking ring and tube. Sling mount for DPMS is vertical (std. FSB can be used).
Mount for RRA is horizontal (sling 'ears' need to be trimmed off). Both brands are easy to install. Use red Lock-Tite or TIG tack the locking ring to the tube.
BM and CLE make an excellent FFT. Both are two piece and harder to install and are worth the effort
