I know i think people have talked about it before....BUt I am about to send my rifle off to get modified...16:mid length
From a strictly cosmetics standpoint....which looks better...a 9 or 12" larue free float on my AR15.??
I know, Iknow.....and I done have enough toys to put on a 12 but....hey..I said strictly from the looks....I guess the longer one may resemble a mrt LMTmonolithic upper....
Help..the decision is putting me on prilosec and valium!!!

why do you think he came here? this is the biggest support group on the net for cosmetic weapon decisions..............if you havent' done so already, just look at some of pictures people have posted with all sorts of junk and useless do-dads they have added on their ARs, so it looks "cool"

come on guys...i have all the stuff I need for the courses I am going down with my county dept. to Blackwater....I just want an opinion for my personal weapon...
MrKasab....if you want to be a smart ass...well here it is....the advantage of a longer rail is to have longer sight radius, hang more stuff, more range of support when shooting prone. etc...I already a have a midlength so I am taking advantage of the longer gas tube....I know everything!!!!!!
So smart asss....All I need to make a decision on is what looks COOLER!!!!?
Show your stufff and we'll see how much you really need on your rifle. so give me a break!
Forgive me if I cant tell if your being sarcastic or not but PLEASE...i am crying out for help..I am a drugie!....Call someone now!!!!!!!!Someone from MSTN!
Jack ASS!!

Depends on whether or not you want to see the gas block. I prefer the look of a 9.0 and the exposed gas block, in particular the LaRue gas block, but that is just my opinion.

JTAC just finished a new upper for me, an SPRish 18" barrel w/ rifle length system and a 12.0 LaRue. Once I get the camera I will post pics.

Having the gas block exposed just looks more proportional to me. However, if it was really a battle weapon, I would go with the completely covered gas block as it would seem to be a more durable setup.

9" - save a few ounces
12" - gain a few ounces, get a longer (iron) sight radius, cover more bbl (less difficult to burn yourself with it).

I went for a 9" on my middie because I'd rather save a few ounces. I would not base my decision on how it looks because looks won't make it perform any better but that's just me.

drabchoi, if weight is a concern and you want a 12", iirc DD 12" rail is the same weight as LT 9". not sure if your mind is set on larue or not.
