  1. OK got my first AR a DPMS Oracle have put a couple hundred rnds thru it so far with zero fail to feed or fail to fire so far I think for the price I gave Im very satisfied But now its time to add accessories and its dumb question Free Float Tube Handguard Im not too worried about a Quad Rail and so Im looking at the Hogue Knurled Free Float Handguard but I cant find anything thru a google search on what the difference is in what I have a regular stock plastic handguard and a free float It looks like from what I am finding I will have to have some gunsmithing done to convert to a free float. Is this correct and if so are there advantages and disadvantages to going free float? Also I have read where there are issues with the gasblock when switching the handguard on the Oracle I Know semi auto handguns / Shottys / SKS / and hunting rifles but like I say this is my first AR and I plan to use it to learn the ins and outs to build my next one Thanks for the schoolin :flea:
