I want to use a vertical grip light on a 6721 HBAR, no need to free float. What is my most efficient option in terms of solid yet light?

KAC RIS/RAS they are #1 & #2. Then it should be the new Sampson 2 piece non FF and the YHM. I don't have my list of weights handy - I'll recheck on monday.

The Command Arms/Fobus/First Samco M44s are lighter - but I wouldn't recommend them if you're using a VFG.

If money is a limiting factor, I'd say that the MI is worth a tiny bit of extra weight. IMHO, they're much better than the YHM or Surefire versions.
