Wes, I just got a Mid Length barrel from Armalite and had planned to put a KAC RAS FF on it and was informed that the mid length RAS FF wouldn't fit on the mid length with the front sight tower in place. Wes at MSTN suggested the Daniel's Defense mid length handguard. This is a project that I'm considering. Do you have a link to pics, price, more info? Thanks,

We are finally getting caught up enough to do some complete uppers. What do y'all think about starting with a pre-ban mid length? southern [url]www.danieldefense.com[/url]

I'd definately be interested in a 1/7 chromelined 4150 barreled upper with the extended feedramp cuts :-) -Cap'n

4150, chrome lined, mid length, 1/7, feed ramp cuts, light weight profile. This would be my perfect carbine. Southern, can you tell us what the new mid lenth tube weighs? Thanks.....Chad

Thanks for the feedback guys! Chad, The mid-length handguard without panels weighs 10.5 oz. southern

Thanks Southern. I'll be buying one in the next few weeks or so. How close to the specs above to my dream machine could you come? The 1/7 midlength is the real problem. I could allways get the profile turned down and ramps cut. But twist and chrome lining (which I might be able to live w/out)is the hard part. Thanks.....Chad

southern, Can you post some pics / price / any other useful info on the mid length tube. Just got some extra funds and I'll be in the market for one of these real soon. Thanks,

wes1, If you have gotten your DD tube installed and have the ability to post some pics...well let's just say, "Spread the love" ;-)

Daniel Defense 9.0 Midlength Upper: [img=left]http://a0.cpimg.com/image/7C/CA/25139580-581d-020000B0-.jpg[/img=left] This is not my barrel of choice, of course. southern

southern, Thanks for the pic....How much? Thanks again
Link Posted: 10/26/2003 5:35:20 AM EDT
That particular upper is already sold. We are still in the process of selecting the best barrels for our complete uppers, so it will still be 2-3 weeks before we have pricing for the production uppers. southern

My rail just came in, I have pics if someone can post them. weswaymire@mindspring.com

email sent, I'll post them for you.

I've seen lots of comparisons of RAS/SIR/FIRSH, etc. but I don't know a lot about the Daniel Defense tubes. Can any of you give me a little more info on these. I want a FF tube with rails that will also help dissipate heat. Oh, yea, like everyone else I don't want to brake the bank with it. So, how do these stack up to the KAC and ARMS stuff?

Wes, Look AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
Link Posted: 10/28/2003 4:41:20 PM EDT
They do look great, don't they? I had the opportunity to stop by southern's place of business w/ a LEO friend & he showed me some of his wares. Very nice indeed. Boxes of railed handguards & related stuff, the latter to remain close hold for now. Keep up the good work! I need to stop back by & get one of those new slings...

It attaches just like a KAC FF RAS. It does not have the little scallops between rails like the KAC its a straight cut. It is a bit more tall than wide where the FF RAS is round. It uses an aluminum barrel nut instead of steel like the FF RAS and is thus very light weight. Cost and quality shoudl be about the same as Knights.

I just recieved my DD mid-length rail yesterday. I'm still trying to decide on a RRA or Armalite barrel. I would probably go with the Armalite if they offered it threaded and not pinned and pressed with their muzzle brake. *I decided, I just purchased a RRA 16" chrome-lined, mid-length, flat-top upper assembly. I'm going to slap my DD forearm on this along with a vortex FS and PRI front sight. It's going on a pre-ban bushy lower with a Mag-pul stock. Should be finished by Dec. 1st or sooner, can't wait to post pics. I almost went with the stainless 1 in 8 barrel, but settled on the chrome lined 1 in 9 because this will be a tactical plinker firing mostly whatever ammo I have on hand at milk jugs and aluminum cans out to ranges of 300 yds, not to mention the occasional household intruder. [rolleyes] I'll post pics when I get it all together.
