I'm about to start on a .458 build and was wondering which forearm would be better. The YHM is only 1oz heavier and more than 1/2 the cost of the DD.

What do y'all think?

I say go with the DD - but I may be a little bit biased...

what gas block did you use?

DD has the better locking system and proper M1913 rails.

The YHM rails has that groove going down the middle, which is an issue if you use a KAC style VFG, if that is not an issue then there is no reason not to go with the YHM.

A Badger low profile... Not a lot of room between the barrel and the tube. I also lost the gas block while shooting - make sure you secure it very well...

i think i'm going to go with the YHM since it provides the most clearance. I'll probably also remove a little bit of material from the block too for just a little bit of extra clearance.
