hi, i'm planning on building a rra w/ an arms sir system, and trying to decide on between the #45 cv , the slimmer 46 and the 58. any input or experience between these three would be appreciated.

i have the 46 and the 50 which is the bi level one. both are the slimline version and i like them both very good fit for my hands. i am 5'8 would say i have medium or lil smaller hands

i like the bi level a lil more though

thanks for the replies. is the difference just based on preference, or is there any benefit to to the larger ones.

i would think that it is based on preference but then again if you think about it what isnt.

the slimline would grip better i think and a hair lighter

on the 50 and 46 i had aimpoints on them mounted to the upper rail with the arms m68, no spacer . cowitness perfectly. now i have an acog w/ 19s on the 50 and will soon be mounting an OTAL on the lower level. which i think woeks out real good cause the bi level will have my acog a lil higher than the otal


eta: by default i believe the only buis that works is the 40s

isn't the arms 58 mid length rail system? seems like with the 58 you get a little more "real estate" to mount accessories closer to the muzzle.

Yes, the #58 is a midlength system. The others you mentioned are for the regular carbine system. There is also the #58MOD which is a #58 modified for use with a standard carbine gas system. It offers more real estate for those running standard CARs/M4s by extending around the front sight base as well as giving a bit of shielding between your knees/legs and a hot FSB after rapid fire.

knightone, the 58mod is a military version since it requires the removal of the delta ring, right? what is the difference between the mounting systems besides that. is one better than the other? thanks for the replies guys.

If you're building from the ground up, an M will look better and you won't have to buy the delta ring parts. If you already have a built upper with the delta ring, and don't have the time, tools, or experience to take it out, then get a C version. Sometimes, a version (like this 58mod) only comes in M.

man, i like how that 58mod looks! maybe later too much money spent already

Yes, it's a "M" model, as you can see from Kisara's pic above. The #58 and #58MOD is only availalbvle in "M" models. The method of mounting either with or without the delta ring is the only difference between the "M" and "C" models. Both are sturdy and rigid. I guess, in theory, the "M" model is probably more rigid, but I doubt you would ever be able to tell. In the end, it de[pends on which model you want and, if there is a "C" version available, whetehr or not you want to remove the ring and make a more semi-permanent installation.
