Since this is the 3 gun capital of the world....I was hoping someone could help me.

 

I'm looking for a 12-14 inch free float handrail for an ar15.

 

Criteria:

 

Light

Be able to accept a bipod

durable.

 

Light is the big thing I'm going for but it must have some way of attaching a harris bipod.

 

 

Also wouldn't mind any advice on a very accurate 14.5 or 16 inch barrel in stainless. It has to be threaded.

I am a fan of the Samson products. They use the milspec barrel nut and you can attach a bipod mount to the bottom. Easy to install and great supporter of the sport and 2A.

 

 

Here is their bipod mount kit.

 

I have used several of the handguards over the years and I have never had a complaint. I am using the 15" Evo on my stainless optics rifle, and the 15" Evo Keymod on my irons light weight rifle.

Samson or Troy.
That bipod mount should work the same on both.

If you want light go with an AP Customs Rhino Arms handguard and stuck a strip of pic rail on the bottom.

JTRhino10 gets you 10% off too.

Barrels...Nordic 16" is good to go. If you want really accurate I like Rainier and JP match barrels but they run $4-500. I ordered a Rainer 14.5" and they added the gass block and tube if my choosing before they pinned it.

Hit me up if you need a discount code for a Nordic barrel too.

Nordic makes a good one that will accept rail sections. Fairly inexpensive too.

I finally got my hands on one of those UTG super slim handguards, and they are really nice. I was pleasantly surprised.

It's getting suppressed and used for precision work. So a bipod is necessary for me..... I just want it lighter then my current 24 inch varmint gun in case I actually want to hunt with it.

 

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'll do some more research on the weight of each. This gives me a starting point.

If youre wanting it to go over the suppressor then the utg most likely isnt going to work

I don't want it over the suppressor. It's a surefire so I still need to be able to ratchet it on.

Lightest I have found is SLR.  They are great to deal with and make a rock solid rail.
