Free Float Or Die

Wet noodle AR-15 barrels FTW:

Last time I checked it’s almost 2013, so unless you’re building some retro throwback tribute to an AR-15 of yore, you need to do like Rob Pincus says and free float the shit out of your barrel.

Do you not want to be the best operator you can be?  Good luck getting range hunnies with sub-MOA groups.

I whipped this up as a joke to go with the post title, but I actually kind of like it:

And yet, plenty of old rifles were quite accurate and were not free floated.
I’m not a competitive long range shooter, so why should I buy their rails as opposed to any other rails?

I understood his comment to mean that free float rails aid in accuracy/consistency and that Daniel Defense free float rails are of high quality and worthy of consideration, not that they are the only ones to improve accuracy.

Cool. Loves me that high speed video!

I’ve been thinking about replacing the M16-type tapered plastic hand guard on my AR with a quad rail. It’s about a 2 to maybe 3 MOA system right now (with bulk ammo), so this looks like something I should check into more. It would be cool if I could cut that in half.

Another vote for putting that on a shirt. I’ve got the A1 handguards on the upper I’m building now; flat bottom is more comfortable than the A2 handguards, though they’re a pain to find spares.

The “Normal vs Free Float Barrels” groups are comparing an M16A4 and an SDMR.
