Evening all,

I was wondering, does Daniel Defense still make the 9.5 FSP? I had read somewhere the 9.5 was discontinued, does that include the FSP series?

I'm new to the DD RASes and was reading about the 9.5 FSP over IN THIS THREAD

Really like it, wondering if it's still around.

Thanks very much,

Hep

I just got mine about 2 months ago. Dennys Guns carries them.

Wes at MSTN in the EE sells them. I got my 2nd a week ago from him.

Thanks chaps.

I was thinking of either the set-up you posted h8mtv OR the DD 12.0 on a M4, lo-pr- GB and a Troy flip-up front. Tough to decide.

Edited to add: VERY nice set-up h8mtv. I have a very similar lower that I'm looking to top off, it's a Fulton lower with ACE entry on a KAC single point and TD grip. I also have an Ambi0catch and an ambi safety.

hep,


         They improved the design of the 9.5 FSP about 6 months ago.  The older 9.5 FSP had a large gap between the rail at 12 o'clock and the front sight post, exposing the gas tube.  The newer 9.5 FSP's have very little space between the 12 o'clock rail and the front sight post.  Here are some updated pics.....2 days after I took these pics the new Troy dual apeture BUIS and the Magpul trigger guard arrived

Aw come on!  I haven't said a thing about your rails in, what, 2 days?

But I am starting to put some ladder rails on the bottom, because I don't use bipods and just rest the rifle on packs, tree trunks or cinder blocks, I don't want my rails to get messed up

Yeah, but the rail covers are purdy too....I reckon you don't want to scuff them up....so you better have your "Going to the range" covers and your "Posting on Arfcom covers"

Hey, what do you fellas think of the TROY RAS? It seems like the nearly continous rail that it forms with a flat top is a decent advantage over the DD. Opinions?

I do have a rifle where the HK sling hook keeps rubbing on the muzzle side rail it not only took the finish off, but started to round off the edge  The ladder type rail covers come in very handy

I think Mongo'd better come in and give you his first hand account on the Troy handguards, but I'd say I will stick to KAC, DD, LaRue, SF and LMT.

Yeah, I knew once you realized how much it would cost to replace your MRP's rails you'd come around

I actually switched my stock to a Cav Arms coyote brown M4 stock today.

Slightly OT question for MSTN... On all these beautiful shorty barrels you build for your customers, are they typically HBAR or A2 profile?

Should we call it "rail estate" instead of "real estate?"

How does this compare to the Troy MRF-CX system?  The chart showing weights is way different for both.....17 vs 10 ounses?  Is that right?  The DD can't be that much lighter....and the Troy can't be that heavy...
