What happened to the lower rails from below the FSB? Why not leave it there like the KAC FF RAS MRE and DD12.0 FSP?
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 4:44:15 PM EDT
More to my point..... what ever happened to the rifle length version?

The KAC FF RAS MRE and DD 12.0FSP are kind of oval to accomodate the bayo lug. But look at the bright side, you can use a bayonet with this new handguard

Paul, they look great. I'm sure you will sell a ton of them.

MI (Midwest Industries) now has a prototype of their new variation of the #17 - called the #17X (X is for eXtended )

Here are some First Look pics "in the white"

The #17X is designed for the carbine gas system. It is a 2 piece design (non FF) that features a non-gunsmith install.

Final designs will feature the same dark hardcoat anodized finish and laser etched T-marks that their #17 has.

What do you think ?





Oh hell. Now I need one of THESE too. Simply because I'd like to mount my light further out on the 9
o'clock rail.

Waiting on rifle length.

Revelation. That is a seriously bad-assed HG.

I have been praising the #17 to whoever will listen. Way better unit than YHM.

MI crushed my yearning for a KAC HG. KAC and the heavy price tag can kiss my.......................

It's time to get busy building my M16A4gery. Once again, optics go on the back burner.

The #17X is still a prototype, the rifle length is past the prototype stage. Not exactly sure on the Rifle length ETA, but it should not be long?

thanks!






Thanks.

By the way. I can see some use for this new design. Pushing a flashlight further forward being one of them. I'd like to see it all dressed up (finished.) I'm glad they put the cutouts for the KAC panels into this one, and that they made it to fit the TD VFG.

KAC panels fit and lock perfectly on my MI #17 HG and the TDVG is manufactured to be exactly to
MIL-SPEC for a Picatinny Rail.

Any idea if MI will make a rifle length version of the unit you've shown?

No handguards for you! Now get back to the books..... the college needs your money.

I went one semester without buying a single book, even taking the finals without owning one of the text books. And this was all while in advanced business classes. Just make friends in the classes and borrow the book when they are not using them.

Or find someone else in teh class and go halves on the book.

Or post in GD about you are a poor college student and want to own a badass handguard you dont really need. Please donate. I am sure there are many people here who would help you out.

thanks!



Can you by any chance get some pictures of the whole machining process?

I am really interested how this goes. What the raw forging looks like before it even begins to be milled etc.

Interesting indeed, looks good so far...

I choose a 1400 dollar guitar once over books.

Still have the guitar. Forgot all the shit from those classes. LOL.

Yea a little bird sent me an IM and told me that. Although my stupid messenger didn't save it. But I have dusted off the handguard removal tool so I'm all set.

Probably an intensive range and photo session in my future.

Is there a figure yet on weight for the 17X?

Is the trim ring just for cosmetics, or is it somewhow required?

Y'know, I'm kinda wishing that the bottom rail was extended, since bayonets seem a little frivolous. I'll still buy one of these, though, like a good consumer whore.

See, now THIS is what I was really wishing for when I bought my YHM 2-pc rails in December.

This is gonna make FIVE different rail/handguard systems I have put on my carbine at one time or another.

Oh well. At least I love my hobby.

Didn't notice they were up on the site yet!

Order placed. (Hey, can you guys get some cheaper VFGs in? I'd have been interested in one ~$10)

I've never figured what I'd put on the top and bottom rails of my KAC FF RAS MRE. sp0rk posted pics of his tiny IR laser, that'd be perfect for the tiny amount of rails ahead of the FSB, click here to see his pics

As promised, pics...


The quality of the rail is impressive. Anodizing is remarkably nice, and the laser markings are a plus.


The fit on my rifle is absolutely perfect, with no wiggle. This is a very solid setup. I'm done with my rifle now! (Well, still need a new VFG, panels, sling plate.. *sigh*)
