The Stainless barrel is the .300 it got the new ( used ) Knights Armament rails
My carbine has the UTB guards from Fleet Farm $54.99, Not bad hand guards but the Knights are much nicer.
I decided to put the lighter ones on the .300 since it is so light with the huge hole for the 308 cal bullet. I may rethink it later.
The aim-point is not zeroed in yet. I am not sure where I want to place it. Since I have the flat top and the rail hand guards ( I have options)
(one last point, My bad: the safety is in the fire position on my Carbine not a good example of a safe rifle )
If you're stuck with a carry handle and don't want to swap out the upper with a stripped flat top receiver, I'd strongly suggest a carry handle cantilever mount. It mounts to the top of the handle then drops down in front of it, giving you a cowitness with your optic. I'd steer clear of mounting an optic on the handguard, especially a drop in handguard.

Just bought an MOE today. Wasn't sure about them at first, but after reading so many positive reviews I decided to try it, glad I did. Feels great, looks great, very light yet durable, fits nicely, plenty of options for adding rails. I'm sure most $150-200 hand guards are better, but it seems very good quality for only $30.

If you only own one I suppose you get it setup and go with . But when you own more than one your always messing with one. You think it is the way it should be then you try something else. It as bad as Owning a Harley very few can just leave it be.
I need another to put some of these parts on.
I have all my rifles set up the same. But, there is one, which is strictly a training rifle, that I'll try new stuff on. I like to be able to pick up any AR (though precision ARs can be different) and everything be the same, whether it's the 10.5", 14.5" or 16".
