Free Floating a 24" Barrel
Newby here, bear with me. I'm trying to add a flat top upper and free float my Bushmaster that comes with a 24" barrel.
As far as free floating; what are my options? I was thinking of using a Troy TRX Extreme 13". When I measure from the delta ring forward 13", it looks like the TRX will land somewhere in my front sight. I've seen where folks have cut their front sight and used free float rails that are longer than what they had to begin with and simply covered their front sight and added a flip up.
I mean even if I went with another gas block, due to the length of the tube, I'll still be in the same boat with the TRX not covering the entire gas block. If I go shorter, then some of the gas tube will be exposed which I assume is unacceptable.
Thanks a million,
