I currently playing with the idea of adding a free-float handguard to my Colt LE6920 wit the factory 16" barrel. I can't decide if I want to go with the LaRue 7.0 and keep the factory front sight or go with the LaRue 9.0, LaRue low profile gas block and Troy flip up battle sight. Without factoring in the price difference which way would you go? Pics of either setup would be appreciated.
Well, that's the fad, it looks cool.
Ask yourself these questions.
Do you really need the extra rail space?
Do you really need a flip-up front sight?
Can you live with the extra weight?
Can you afford the extra cost?
Do you need it to be a little easier to remove the handguard tube?
I stick with the regular sights mainy for the weight savings, and I don't really need a Flip up front.
But I do think the extended HGs look good.
the std. fsb would be a stronger set up.
The full rail looks cool, do you need any other reason?
Keep the fixed front sight. It saves weight and alot of money. Also getting the rail perfectly square
is a pain.. It has to be for the bolt on front sight to be lined up properly with the rear sight.
Unless you use a telescope the front sight should be in the fixed up position all the time.
That means with a red dot keep the sight up.
Did I say the long rail looks cool.
