Default Aero precision Quantum

I have an AR with a mid length gas system with an A2 front sight. I've been thinking about free floating it. I want to keep the A2. I was thinking the Aero Precision Quantum M loc. Does anyone have any pictures or experience with similar set ups?

I have the Quantum M-LOK handguard on my AR pistol, save your money and get something else or get the Enhanced M-LOK handguard from them. The Quantum doesn't have a full pic rail on the top of the handguard and it required me to shave my Magpul BUS to fit them on the front pic rail since there's not enough clearance, although you're keeping your A2 front sight. If you're really on a budget for a FF handguard, it isn't terrible, but there's better options.

Ya I looked at the enhanced. The reason I was looking at the quantum was the lack of rail on the top. Any recommendations for similar fore ends

If you don't have a budget and don't want a full pic rail, Odin Works has an awesome, lightweight, M-LOK handguard. But it's WAY more expensive than the Aero. https://www.odinworks.com/category_s/1888.htm

I like the ALG handguards, and they're reasonably priced. They're available without a top rail.

I've tried those aero rails.. They are kinda fat.



I'd suggest going midwest industries SSK or SSM.

I was looking at the Aero Atlas S-One but 2x the price of the Quantum. Much thinner and lighter though.

+1 on the MI. Did a build for a friend and it is nice and light. I built a rifle using the Troy delta. It's nice but so heavy.

I've been looking at the Midwest industries and it is a solid possibility. I'm also liking Faxon

Default Aero precision Quantum

I like my M-LOK 15” Quantum but may replace it with the enhanced also (I have one of each currently, both 15”).

The Quantum is nice feeling but the short optic rail area and difficulty of adding rail that aligns with the upper is driving me away from it. The scope I have mounted needs to go a bit further forward and I would have to get a cantilever mount but like my current QD mount. The Quantum is actually heavier too despite not having the upper rail.

Anyway, I recommend going with the Gen2 Enhanced.

The Atlas S-One also doesn’t fit on Aero enhanced M4E1 uppers. I’d like them to make one that blends to Atlas width but mounts on an M4E1.
