Im wanting to get a Larue rail for my RRA Entry Tactical Carbine. I was looking at there 7.0 but talked to a friend and he recommended getting a 9.0 and getting a new gas block. Im new to this so I would like some help/input from all you guys out there. What do most ppl get for a carbine, the 7" or 9" and etc. Thanks!

If you get the 9", you need a new front sight to attach to the rail in addition to the gas block. That's what I'd do.

so you would get the 9 instead of the 7? Is there any advantages/disadvantages of getting the 9" rail over the 7?

I would get the 9". The only disadvantage is that you have to buy a sight that attaches to the rail. I think it looks better personally.

Get the 9.0 rail and the gas block. LaRue also offers the Troy front sights. One stop shopping for two great companies. LaRue is a good company to deal with. The advantage of the 9.0 is that when you add a Larue bipod mount you still have enough room for your hand. This is the set up on my Bushmaster and it works great.

yea, i deffinately dont want to go past the 9... and for my purposes i think the 7 would be the cheaper route because i want have to get a new gas block plus new front sights...getting the 7 would save me at least 200 bucks
