How's the weight? It looks like it's quite a bit heavier than standard handguards. Any one want to share pictures of theirs, especially 16" carbines.

Thanks,
Gary

They are a little heavy, but I love mine.

I have the short-handguard rail on my medium contour carbine. This rifle also has the receiver scope mount.

The top rail on the scope mount does not line up with the top rail on the interface. This does not matter at the present time, as I only use the rail interface for a foregrip, and may add a light in the future.

If I wanted to mount some sort of night sight with my aimpoint, they would not co-witness between the scope mount and the rail interface.

I bought mine when they first came out, so I would suspect this problem has long since been corrected.

Does your scope rail line up with the rail on the handguard? If they corrected this problem, I may buy a newer model in the future.
