so i ordered a bunch of good stuff in the last couple of weeks, and one item was a MI SS12 rail to go on this 16" middy build.
turns out they weren't actually in stock. i wasn't set on having to have the MI SS12 specifically, but that was what was "in stock"
I really wanted any similar 12" modular free float system. so i started looking elsewhere, but i couldn't find any options in stock anywhere the last couple of days! (in black anyway, other colors are abundent)

anyway, i get an email today that they have a 15" version available. i said eff it, i'll take it. i'm impatient i guess at this point.
so next week i should be putting together my first build.

so does anybody else have a 16" barrel with a 15" handguard on it? any pictures?
i think it might look badass, but am I going to cook the end of the handguard having it so long and close to the muzzle?
I'm putting a fsc556 compensator on the end too

I have a 15" rail on my 16" barrel w/ an FSC30 compensator on it (6.8 SPC rifle). I'll take a pic in a minute or two.

i think this decision based on my impatience will work out ok

I wonder if your hand is going to be in the blast cone from your brake. You might want to put a hand stop to keep your hand back a little. I know you have long ass arms.

It's prob a good thing that you went with the longer one, your arms are so long it will most likely fit you way better.

well all the pieces are in, time to start building!

they screwed up though and sent me a MI SS15 - gen2 instead of the older version.
I was told, and was expecting to get the version that has round holes, and is a little bit bigger diameter, but instead got the newer one with slots.

this one is definitely nicer looking, and is the more expensive option, so i'm not going to complain :)
as long as it's not TOO narrow :) seems light as can be too!

If the tube is to narrow alone you can put an AFG on it, should make a it fit your big ass hand a bit better. lol
