I have a featureless Arsenal SGL that I've been shooting alot and Ive noticed I naturally want to place my support hand out farther when moving and shooting.I'm 6'3" and feel like my support arm is bunched up.I always end up "chicken wing" with my left elbow bowed out.I don't really care about the top length I just need somewhere to put my left hand out closer to the barrel that won't fry my fingers.

I have the standard MI rail with a red dot on top but it's just to short underneath.Any advice/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

This is the one Im looking at.

Is this on a saiga with the original gasblock, or something else? There is a few options for saigas.

How about a longer stock? I am 6'3" and the longer stock did it for me.

That stinks, they are great rifles. I hope you can figure out a way to make it work for ya. I'd be curious to see what the solution ends up being. As I would be willing to try it out as well.

Looks like the OEM for the Tactical Response rail set up they had a year or two ago.

Didnt catch on them for a reason me thinks. Not to mention it looks horrible and doesnt seem to extend the forearm area at all.

It looks like the MI is the only way to go for the $.

Here is what it loks like mounted, I figure I can put the AFG so it hangs off the rail just a tad so I can get the room without getting sizzlefingered lol.

Wow, you naturally reach that far forward? Iam 6'2" and if I don't have a mag hold it is usually just a bit further up.

Good luck on your search.
