I have a Colt heavy barreled 16" upper, and I'd like to know if the KAC RAS will fit on it. I guess I'll have to edit this post when I get home and can actually measure the thickness of the barrel, but it's stout.

COLT HBAR IS .701 IN DIAMETER. E-MAIL WES AT MSTN. BEST INFO, BEST GEAR. BEST IN THE BUSINESS TO DEAL WITH. KAC RAS FULL FLOATING WILL FIT. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE FRONT SIGHT AND BARRELL FROM UPPER RECEIVER TO INSTALL.

Is the front sight and barrel removal only necessary for the free float RAS?

I believe the front sight removal is only necessary with the free float RAS. On the oither hand with the RAS II you get free floated barrel without having to remove the front sight assembly. RAS II will work with the HB.

Wes, you 'da man. Thanks for the very helpful clock. [;)] Oh, and I don't have calipers, but I measured the diameter just aft of the front sight assembly by eye and tape measure, and it's just about 7/8" or .875" so I guess it's the RIS for me.
