    Custom AR-10 Question - Lightweight Free Float Forend

    Hello Everyone,

    I am currently shooting a custom AR-10 fitted with a custom profile Kreiger match grade barrel and a Badger Ordinance Stabilizer forend.

    For more general purpose use I am looking to have a lighter weight upper made using the same barrel with a more conventional but top quality forend that free floats the barrel and allows the placement of short lengths of rail for lights, bipod, etc. can be attached when needed.

    I'd like to avoid the typical railed forends altogether if possible due to weight.

    Something like the old cylinder shaped aluminum free float tubes from D&L Sports in the 1990s that attached tactical lights at the 1 or 11 O'clock positions would be just about perfect, but have had zero luck locating anything like this.

    Any and all input is most welcome. Thank you for your assistance.

    Anthony

    Do you actually have a AR-10 by Armalite or one of the variants?


    If you have an actual Armalite AR-10 you can look at the JP like in the link below or you can look at Viking Tactical

    Hi WH,

    It is a custom rifle built on an Armalite AR-10 upper and lower.

    So the answer to your question, for the purposes of this subject, is "yes" it is an Armalite AR-10.

    Cool. Just wanted to be sure because lots of times people will say AR-10 when they really have something else...like a DPMS. Check out the link. That might be something like you are looking for.

    I think my computer is playing tricks on me. Sorry for the confusion.

    The JP unit looks good.

    Any other models worth considering?
