    why would you want CF when the DD lite aluminum rail is stronger and more functional and actually 3oz lighter?

    the PRI rail has a decent reputation, if a bit expensive though. if you're going for some aesthetic look, it's probably not a bad choice. just not as good as the DD.

    What does it need to do? Railed handguards are expensive light mounts, and that's about all. A $25 rail screwed to the original or MOE handguard is functionally equivalent.

    Free floating is a separate consideration, mounting the sling or bipod to it reduces changing the point of impact. What it doesn't do is make a 2MOA barrel suddenly start shooting 1/2MOA. Not even serious ammo development will get those results, and the amount of effective accuracy may not even be needed. 2MOA is milspec, a 10" circle at 500m, still about half the size of the target zone on most 2 or 4 legged 150 pound live targets.

    Is this a target or prairie dog gun, and what "pedigree" does the barrel have to back up the application?

    It's for a 18" Fulton Armory light barrel. I want it to be a do it setup.

    Because a carbon fiber forearm don't get hot during shooting and burn you.

    The rails sections of the PRI are removable if weight is a concern. (How much rail estate to you really need?) They are expensive but it was worth it to me
