I have a question for you quys. I have always like the idea of the 9.5 but did not like the HUGH amount of gas tube that was exposed next to the FSB. For this reason I have not gotten one. I was just checking out stuff and getting some ideas on my current build when I noticed that several uppers in one of MSTNs posts looked like 9.5's fit closer to the FSB. I chalked it up to the angle of the picture. Then I was looking at "Some of what has gone through ADCO" in the industry forums and on page 3 there is a clear picture on a DD 9.5 and it most certainly doesn't have as much gas tube exposed.
Did DD change the design of this forearm? Any input would be appriciated.
