Which would win a hard use torture test?

This is kind of like comparing apples and oranges because the two systems mount in an entirely different way.

I would go with the LaRue for durability

Hmmm... I was contemplating this same question recently. Perhaps the RAS II has an edge on the other FF systems because it clamps onto the rails of the upper reciever as well as the barrel nut rather than relying soley on the upper receiver threads.

(Excluding the ARMS, of course.)

its sort of a toss up between rasII and larue... normally i would consider the rasII to be the most secure since it has 3 differnet locking points... i like the fact that I can remove my rasII and put on normal handguards if i want...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the RAS II also do this? I mean if you think about it, it's got a lof of tension/pressure holding the barrel nut in place when you screw those clamps tight.

I might have bought the LaRue had it been out when I was shopping for my rail system, but really you can't go wrong with either one. LaRue definately has an advantage in that there's no "hump," but if you plan to mount an Aimpoint it's not a disadvantage. In fact, LaRue makes a mount made especially for that, which is what I plan on getting. You can also still mount an ACOG if you so desire.
