Troy MRF
Link Posted: 9/28/2004 1:23:24 PM EST
Troy MRF CX with full 10in bottom plate. Yeah thats right, I'm the first one they have done that for!
Link Posted: 9/28/2004 1:41:56 PM EST
Troy Industries MRF, by far the best...............IMHO.
Link Posted: 9/28/2004 2:01:14 PM EST
I'd say the three top dogs right now are the Troy MRF, the Larue, and the Daniel Defense. The RASII is a close 4th.

I'll be a bit different and say Troy MRF-MX!

The MRF rail system has everything I want.

1. Easy installation.

2. Continuous top rail.

3. Removable bottom section.

4. Free float.

5. Good price $$.

My next carbine will have a Troy MRF-MX!

My first rail system was a ARMS SIR 50 it was okay and later I switched to a KAC MRE which I love except for the inability to remove the bottm section.

IMHO, the MRF combines the best features of the SIR and the KAC FF RAS. The only thing that would make the MRF better is if were just a bit lighter.

How much is the TROY MRF for 16" barrel with A2 front?

[looking into the future]MAN, that Mongo 12.0 rail system is the shit!!!! Troy MRF, ahhhhhh, that's old news!![/looking into the future]

Troy is probably the best continuous rail system and CAS-V the best "over rail" clamp style...

Had to choose the "Other" option....... Yankee Hill, I just like it best and the price is most reasonable.
Link Posted: 9/28/2004 3:17:54 PM EST
FWIW, I was never really satisfied with the SIR, so I switched to Daniel Defense. No complaints.
Link Posted: 9/28/2004 3:22:11 PM EST
That's jacked, I voted for the last and it didn't show.


Anyways, go with the YHM 2-Piece.

I guarantee you that if a DD, LaRue or KAC was $100, you wouldn't be voting for YHM.

+1 for the ARMS #58 Mod I love it

Although I haven't tried it out yet. I'm looking at the Yankee Hill FF rail systems. . . at the price difference it couldn't hurt to try it out. You could always sell it on the EE if you didn't like it.

Now don't start this shit again. Don't tell me that the DD users will be crying like the SIR crowd as soon as their precious rail isn't the best anymore.

Why people get so emotionally attached to gear is beyond me.

Continuous Top Rail - Troy MRF
Non-CTR - KAC RAS II or LaRue

Oh, it will be the end all of rail systems. All the major makers today will be forgotten when this thing comes out. It will guarantee 0.25MOA immediately after installation. But I can't let out my secret just yet - OPSEC and all.

Grant-
I'm curious as to why you'd pick a one piece over a two.

I have a 16" barrel with a screw-on flash suppressor, so there's really nothing that keeps me from removing the front sight. I'm going with the MRF (not sure what length just yet) because it allows me to get at the barrel for cleaning.

In fact, I'm thinking of going with a shaved front sight & a rail mounted flipup, so there's really nothing keeping me from the Larue, I simply don't want to have to unscrew the whole thing anytime I want to get access to the barrel.

Thoughts?
Link Posted: 9/29/2004 7:08:24 AM EST
You didn't list cost as a factor so I choose DD. If cost is a major factor than I would pick the LaRue

I'd be curious also, but my thoughts are: How much barrel maintenance is required and how often does this need to be done? Can this maintenance be done with, say bottle brushes or bore brushes through the vent holes?

Mongo-

My thoughts go back to my DSA SA58, which unfortunately sat neglected for over a year. Once I got rid of the bitch and got back into shooting, I changed out the handguards from the old metal ones to plastic ones. There was rust on the barrel. It wasn't bad, nothing catestrophic, but it was there. Since then I'm a bit paranoid about limiting access to parts of my gun that I might want to clean, or at least be able to see to check on. Obviously it would take millenia for something like that to effect function, but it still bothers me. I can just imagine looking through the holes on the Larue, seeing the rust, and thinking "damnit, this is gonna be a bitch. now I gotta take this thing all the way off and all the way back on again".

YMMV

For all the Troy voters- the weight isn't a factor for you?
13oz. (carbine) seems quite heavy. Ok, the SIR is 15oz.

do you have some others to compare it to? Just make sure you compare apples to apples in terms of all mounting hardware, and account for the removal of the delta ring, when you quote the weights.
