What advantages does the PRI carbon fiber free-float handguard have over the fiberglass Armalite free-float tube that justifies the 3X cost difference for the PRI? Can either of these tubes be installed on a rifle that still has the normal front sight post? I have only seem them in pictures with the milled front sight. Thanks.

i have had both and would say unless you plan on mounting something on the rails the pri is just cost more. i beleive the pri is lighter and has cooloing holes but to just freefloat your barrel i would go with the armalite. to put it on your barrel you would have to knock out the pins install then put the front sight back on. im not sure if there is room so you should check first.

What about Armalite's new carbon tube, it looks like the pri but without the holes, and again about half the cost?
