    Geissele 2017 shot show preview

    Arguing that 10.5-11.5" rails is only accommodating a handful of people when they offer a 7" is backwards to me.

    Sure, 7" is standard for carbine gas, but A. what percentage of the people that buy a 7" rail are actually willing to take the fsb off and swap the barrel nut for basically zero added real estate and B. Their rail is short and leaves an awkward gap between the fsb anyway. So, still a weird length.

    Yes you get a dope barrel nut for your free float awesomeness but how much does that barrel nut REALLY improve over other designs on such a short a** rail.

    Looks like a 10" rail in this post. New production or old stock? Maybe the FBI's getting them all?

    So...anyone hear anything on the new single stage trigger, Mk13 and Mk14 rail release? I'm hoping to hear something at NRA show myself...

    What they need to do is release a 10.75" hand guard.

    I have a SD-3G and would be interested in the single stage trigger.

    I got tired of waiting. I asked a couple times on their FB and all you get is "Stay tuned! Coming soon!"

    11.5" colt commandos are prevalent in several LE and industry circles. It isn't a "handful of members" on this website.

    I emailed them, two days ago, about the SSP timeframe and have yet to hear back...
