Take a look at this pic of a Tromix 440 CorBon Magnum with an odd triangular free float tube.  Regardless of caliber, what do you guys think of the free float tube and the overall looks of the gun.  I'm still a bit undecided about using these FFT's or going back to a more conventional unit.

Hey, that's why I put it up here, for some good feedback....if it looks poor, so be it....no its not my design, I just picked it up and thought I would try it out.  Here's a pic of the intregral barrel/comp unit.  Note how it was back-bored before installation.

Disproportionate and awkward looking. I'd suggest sticking to the conventional look with a K.I.S.S. approach. Aside from that, your equipment is GREAT!

Kinda like the idea of a flat lower surface on the fore arm fore working of a bag or bench rest although it does look larger and more ungainly then needed. How about flattening off the top to a trapizoidal cross section and lose some of the volume, or a floating IRS? Don`t see any problem with the break other then I`d like to see the porting restricted to the upper 180 deg. to minimize dust kick up, maybe help with muzzle rise?
