If and when I build my M4 with RAS do I need to "connect" the upper with the barrel/RAS with a rail? Doing so with an FF RAS would seem to be counter productive.

I would'nt! Especially if your freefloating. If you want to free float and have a "bridge rail" between the upper rec. rails and the forend then just get the RAS II. Otherwise you will be spending money on a long rail that you really don't need unless perhaps your worried aoubt bbl. sag from full auto use. Don't get me wrong, the ARMS mod 38xl is cool but not a must have for semi use. FF RAS is plenty strong on it's own. So is RAS. And so is RAS II! Good luck!

Thanks Troy. What I want to do is attach my EOTech a little farther forward than it will go on the flat top. It's a AA version and with it deployed all the way forward on the flat top I can't change batteries without removing my sight. I also have an M3 light I'd like to attach and most likely a forefrip due to a problem from a fractured risk. I saw a thread "Is a RIS strong enough?" and wondered if adding a RAS was worth the trouble and/or if it needed to be "bridged". Thanks again, TS

Didn't I just see this topic in another forum?
