I'm new to the 308 world. I decided to start out with a DPMS 20" 7.62 NATO (which is on order).

I'm looking for a modular free float rail - I prefer most of my rail to be smooth, and just add picatinny rails where I actually would hang something.

So far, my search has turned up Troy's BattleRail and JP's VTAC handguards

Are there any others out there? Anyone have either of those two? What do you think?

I assume I cannot use my AR15's armorer's wrench to install the handguards - do I just order DPMS's tool, or is there another tool that is preferred?

Thanks,
H.

PRI makes a carbon fiber modular and Samson MFG is suppose to be coming out with an Evo rail for the LR series rifles in the near future.

Moto I didn't know you were over here too. Yes that's my little pet project that's waiting on the BHW barrel. That is the Mega upper/lower set that has been all the rage lately... I'm not sure what your asking, it's a Mega (like I posted earlier) they use the "old, high" DPMS rail height... PRI sells the 2 different rails that run the length of the gun in both DPMS "old/high" and "new/low" rail hieghts. But I don't want the entire rail or the added weight, without the entire rail they match up great..

yeah I'm new around here..... been a member for a while but I just kind of lurk. It didn't even dawn on my that it wasn't a DPMS upper. Guess I was stuck on the PRI tube. I want that tube in the worst way but they don't make one for the stupid new DPMS height yet. That things looks really nice..... If you just had my barrel you would be set.... I had not idea fluting would take that much longer. Ok im done with my thread jacking.... I'm now back in hiding.
