Free Float or S-system RIS

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

Looking at getting a RIS for my M4 but cannot decide between a Free Float and a S-System style

so would anyone care to discuss the pros and cons

(not interested in price/availability or what make atm just the rails themselves thanks)

 

Thanks a lot Nick

Obv free float.

 

Simply because it isn't an S-System rail set. :lol:

 

I just think the free float looks better, I also like how it doesn't add anything on top of the receiver, so your optics don't end up higher than they need to be, I think it gets a bit awkward when they're raised.

 

I imagine a free float will weigh less as well.

okay cheers, looking at some pics i think a S type would look a bit odd with the para stock but the free float would look better as it has a more rifley look about it
