I bought a Radical Firearms 8.5 300 black I am not sure what rail they put on it but it weighs 400 lbs.
Anyway It is an 8.5" barrel it has a 7 inch rail on it now. I am looking for an 8" lightweight free float rail.
All i have found is KAC urxlll and urx4 but that's too nice for this budget gun.
Anybody seen anything like I am looking for ? it cant be any longer than 8.5 because I have to be able to access
my AAC 51t mount.

Update: I did find a UTG Pro Keymod 7" that weighs 5oz not exactly what I would consider but for the price and weight it could be an option.

Are you looking for one with rails or just a tube?

Just get the YHM diamond rail. It's light and affordable

have you looked at the BCM KMR rails, super light weight and strong

I usually run samson but I was looking for something 8 to 8.5 inches and yes I need a top rail.

I used UTG PROs on two recent builds and was pleased.

ordered this one turns out I wont have the room for an eight inch rail. This one is 7.54 so that will work.

There is a reason BCM KMRs cost what they do.

Super light weight, super strong, no shims or spacers, nothing to time, and no anti-rotation ears digging into your Upper Receiver because its properly designed.

And only 3 ounces for a 7 inch rail (total including all hardware 5.2 ounces)!

Having seen picture evidence of two BCM KMRs fail, I would look elsewhere.

I've been extremely pleased with my Centurion Arms CMR, unfortunately I don't believe they make a rail in the length you are looking for.

Well when it gets here I will decide keep it or return it and keep looking. Seems to be good to go its made by Leapers and is US made.
Leapers is good enough to play over in the sandbox then its good enough for my weekend toys.

I was looking at the UTG Pro Super Slim, but I ended up buying an upper with a MI SS12G2. Had I not bought that upper I'd have gone with the UTG.
