    *Moderator, please delete if innapropriate or pointless*

    Just wondering if there is anything available like this. I know there are angle mounts which would allow these points, and also rails could be custom mounted by hand at all 8 angles, but a premade handguard with 4-6 inch rails like this might be something to offer.

    Hmm, I'm not sure there would be enough room on the side for some accessories for this to work, and some tightening screws may get in the way of other rails, not practical, but if made I would consider picking one up.

    understandable, but considering it would be a free-floating, and you would obviously not mount on all 8 rails at the same time, and not in the same spaces. but having the freedom to mount at 90, 45, 360, 315, 270, 225, 180, and 135 respectively would be awesome. can you say AFG with two low angle mounted m203s?

    and apparently it was made in real steel, but discontinued, found on brownells. I'm talking strictly airsoft version, polymer or aluminum with steel rails. like 75-80 bucks.

    I could probably have one machined. I'd just have to draw it up on CAD. I'd probably use DD barrel nuts.

    There's actually a few other handguards/rail systems with similar setups. I believe that this and the Troy one are the only ones with airsoft replicas.

    I don't like the look nor the design of those two. Just my opinion though.

    Don't really like them myself. Just wanted to point out that it does exist.

    There is also the talon.

    Don't know why you would need so many rails though. Seems like a waste.

    not using all rails at the same time! what is the big problem with having options of mounting angles? I mean having a long range scope at top mount, a mid range sighted in at 45 degrees, and a red dot opposite that? just making a conversation here.

    Why would you need 3 different sights? Some easily mount a mid magnification scope with a small red dot on top of it.

    The need for a long range scope for airsoft is useless except for looks. Also moving your rifle over 45 degrees to use the site is useless as the hopup will make you shoot a lil sideways.

    I don't know what you are wowing over other then me proving the uselessness of having a bajillion rails for no odd reason.

    You wanted to have a lil conversation and I'm giving you a conversation.

    If you really need a mid range scope paired with a quick targeting sight pick one of these up.

    If you feel the need to have a sight for each individual yard then pick this up.

    And don't forget, the second vertical grip is a tactical TP holder.
