I have a 18" barrel with a mid length gas system. Should I get a 12" forearm and go over the gas block, or should I go with a 9.2 " standard forearm (plan on going with a YHM light weight 4 rail forearm)

12.5" will give you better sight radius.

1. how big are your hands? just kidding
2. What (if any) accessories do you plan to mount on the rails?

Well, if it's just a toy, a couple ounces won't mean as much, so I'd go with the longer rail, a 12.0 (or a 13.2 even). I think it'll look better with the 18" barrel. Plus most of the 18s I've seen are heavier profile more precision-oriented anyway so you'd have more room and better support for a bipod.

I voted for the 12" rail. I even like the longer rails on the shorter barrels.

Thanks for all the good input, I think I will go for the 12"
