Okay, I was not paying attention to when the Daniel Defence Lite rail came out...how are these working out, with the new bolt-through attachment system? Plese post pics, or point me to an omnibus thread, thanks!

Thanks! I've tried a bunch of rails, and am always open to new things. The attachment system is different, it is light, so I am working up a build for one.

There is some talk in that thread about the collar being "free to spin", but it seems to me that once the gas tube has been inserted, it ain't gonna spin:



The question of the bolts backing out would be a different story...

The layout/ installation pictures are outstanding. Very nicely done.



ETA- Good info on the Vltor Intermediate as well.


I spent a lot of time at the MM site years ago, before I used ARFCOM. I learned a ton from the site. I still go there from time to time.

I have LaRue 9.0 and 12.0 handguards. I love them to death. I also have the LaRue rear BUIS, Aimpoint mount, SPR mount, and TWO low-profile gas blocks.

Now that I have self-identified myself as a fan of LaRue products, I also declare myself free to ask about and purchase products made from any other manufacturer that catches my eye; when I do so, I do not wish to be dismissed as a partisan whore, nor as a hating troll.

If I'm so satisfied with my LaRue handguards, why would I cast covert glances at one made by another firm? Because I'm curious. Because I'm perverse. Because I'm fickle. Because I'm a perfectionist when it comes to AR's. Because the product is different. But whatever the reason, let us discuss the gear like the scientists we are, and renounce the whore/hater paradigm. Amen. Now, go and Do the Right Thing.

I'm in Sacramento. No on 87!

I went down to Newport Beach to take a class for work a while back...great place, but WAY OUT of my price league (I saw teenagers driving Lexus's)...if I'd a known you were in SoCal, I would've stopped in and we could talk guns!

Another drive down I-5 though and I'll go bat farting insane.

Is this basic attachment system the one that won a contract as part of the RAS II competition?

PS thanks for the hat, Mr. LaRue!
