    Troy Delta Battle Rail shipping - Any feedback?

    Troy is finally shipping the Delta Battle Rails.

    These are supposed to be free floating and require no modifications to the host weapon. No cutting of the Delta ring.



    Has anyone actually handled one of these yet?

    I'm curious about how well they lock up on the gun, the size and the weight.

    The idea of the tube shape or the wave of new tube style handguards?

    I gotta agree with you.

    And the "bolt every p.o.s. in the Magpul catalog on a MOE handguard"...

    I guess I must be one of those faggy tube handguard fanboys but I find that the tubular handguard works well in in an aggressive stance, helping my get my support hand out there for better control of the weapon. I obviously don't know shit about shooting though and am following a fad. Real shooters don't use tubular handguards nor do they bolt on anything to Magpul handguards.

    Hilarious! Count me in (although a little late in coming out of the closet) on the homo handguard.

    Still praying for the RDS fad to go away?!

    Anything not made out of wood and steel is for faddish pussies. RDSs' are a hoax. LWRC employees eat babies. If you own a tubular handguard, you might as well have a rainbow sticker on your vehicle.

    That should cover most of markm's incoherent rantings for now.

    ...I have a tube handguard on my AR. Guess I need to find one of those refracted light stickers and learn where the closest glory hole is.

    You're using a tube handguard in a way that makes sense.

    I see a lot of tube handguards with shit bolted all over 'em with an AFG or VFG, usually with the shooter hanging on to the magwell anyway. What's the point there?

    Would it be better if they had said shit bolted onto a more conventional style handguard? Are we really nitpicking over the shape of a handguard here?

    I think this thread has hastily run its course.

    I disagree. It could definitely use a course correction, but I would still like to know what those who have used the Delta rail think of it.

    Fad or improvement? Or maybe the original quad rails with rails all over were the Fad?......Only time will tell right? Why do we even care? As long as it works well for you, why does it matter?

    The Delta Rail seems like a good device for people who can't modify their weapons by an armorer. Since we haven't gotten any real meaningful replies, my guess is no one's used one yet. Although not as low profile as the Alpha or TRX, the handling characteristics should be at least somewhat if not very similar.
