Anybody have any experience with that sight? As well as a recommendation for the fore end and rail set up?
For $90 you can't go wrong with the Romeo 5!
As far as handguard for a light.....really depends on how much you want to spend.
You can go cheap and get a drop-in Magpul handguard with their rail adapter for around $50, UTG Pro drop-in for around $70. Or you can go as high as $300+ for a drop-in Knights Armament RAS quadrail. Some mid priced great options also.. Midwest Industries drop-in, Troy drop-in. Anyone will work though!
