    I'll try and tip off Bill to this thread, perhaps then he can help us out with any questions or availability dates/prices.

    I called this morning and was told 4-6 more weeks. I did not even think to ask about the price.

    Looks like this handguard system is a winner. I dont think Ill ever find my self hanging off a helo skid by my sling, but I do see a new solid well made handguard in my future.

    BTW, do you happen to have weight of your rail with and without the barrel nut?

    Looks like a solid design! It will no doubt perform as anticipated.

    Ouch...GA typical misses their planned release dates for new products I've found by about 4-5weeks. Just using the SD line of trigger, S2S/G2S? line, and most recently even though technically not GA...the ALG triggers.

    I sent Bill an email earlier so perhaps he will reply with some more details if he has the time which I can't imagine them having....I wish I could ask Bill G 1.34 million questions in all seriousness, thus I force myself to almost never ask any questions.

    Thanks for the update, and I do believe these rails will be worth the wait in the end for those who require Geissele built machinery

    Bill said they would be $360 for the HK416 rails. Should be the ballpark price for the M4/AR variants, but don't quote me on it. From what I've seen, the AR rail will come with a solid bbl nut that allows for a simple 2 screw attachment. So I'm not sure if price will vary.

    Timing sounds about right. They are currently in full swing on AR production. Then they will switch the line back to 416/MR556 rail production.

    I did a full review for the HK guy... HK416/MR556 Geissele Rail

    The HK rifles already have the same type bbl nut that will come with the AR, but not sure of the weight of it. I personally don't notice the extra weight from the added length (+5.5 inches) probably because it's so slim and comfortable to hold. Then again, it's an HK and known to be on the heavy side of the M4 variants. So I'm used to it.

    I did do the math when comparing the stock 9 in HK rail to the G-rail per inch and the Geissele rail was .2 oz lighter per inch. That included the QD that's already built into the HK Geissele rail. My guess is that the AR will be slightly lighter than the HK version.
