use full floating handguards? Is it a question of combat strength? Any body know of experiments replacing the std handguard with the full floater?

Because 2 MOA accuracy is acceptable for a combat rifle.

And, not to mention, you can pop on/off regular handguards in a matter of second vs. the freefloated stuff.

I think the freefloating guards are mainly there for compition-type shooters.

And don't forget the cost of floating every rifle in the U.S. arsenal might be quite staggering.

How about the new Selective Intergrated Rail System (S.I.R.)that is under development?
