Aside from that I’ll be that guy. I think they look old.
I’ve never shot anyone. With all due respect, that doesn’t mean I have no right to an opinion on what products I use. Larue would sell a lot more rails if they came out with a continuous top rail and 7 sided MLOK. Trivial to some, but I think the market speaks pretty loudly to that.
I don’t really understand your first paragraph. They mount anything you need, and the rail comes off and on for servicing as easily or easier than BCM or G. The indexed portion is the barrel nut, which is indeed more tedious to install and remove.
Of course its acceptable for you to have an opinion on what you purchase. And G makes very nice stuff (just not in 11.x”). But just because you have other preferences, doesn’t make something obsolete, or non-competitive. Just like my opinion that some products are only outdated on social media, but still are adequate for their intended purpose. Which is a positive opinion, rather than a negative or condescending one. BTW, they almost have what you want. Its only 7-sided at the front, though. Two slots back and the 45s turn into vents, although I’m not sure what I’d want to mount back there.
I only brought up Larue to goad G into making a competing product for me to buy, but they chose a different path, so I’ll stick with what I’ve got. I apologize for the thread drift.
