Does anyone have experience with the BMAS free float tube? I currently use an ARMS #45, and have recently purchased a RAS-II and was wondering how the BMAS would compare to the aforementioned rail systems. Thanks.

Since we're on the subject, what about the FF tube with rails from Fulton Armory? What are some of the differences between the "military grade" FF handguards and the less expensive ones on the market? I know the FIRSH uses a clamp to prevent it from rotating and one-piece tubes can't be indexed very easily but what about the ones that have a separate barrel nut (such as the one from Fulton Armory)?

The Cmore tubes sold by Fulton are heavy and they suffer from the same problems mentione above. I bought one and wound up selling it and buying a knights FFRAS which I have been pleased as punch with. Save your pennies and buy the best. You will be happier in the long run. IPSC_GUY sends

Ok. From a design point of view, why are they better? How do they prevent those problems? I can see how attaching the RAS to the top rail of the receiver would help reinforce the mounting and would prevent it from rotating but what about the other FF handguards that just attach with a barrel nut?

The most rigid one and always in perfect alignment with the receiver, plus about the easiest to install with no gun smithing is the SIR C systems. More versitile via selecting where and if you want rails, and cooler in rapid fire. They just cost a little more. Good shootin, Jack
