    It's ok, there's more than one way to skin a cat. There's the always better 5 finger discount, just got to make sure to avoid the all seeing eye in the ceiling. Otherwise I might get an all expenses paid trip to one of those gated communities.

    Does anyone happen to have any insight into BCM’s lack of stock on their website?

    I have contacted them, but haven’t got much of an answer.

    Who else would you all recommended for M-lok handguards?

    I'm betting it's demand. Guns and gun accessories are a hot ticket right now. We're making 700+ handguards a day, and apparently it's not enough because they started more of us on 12 hour shifts this week.

    Same crap everyone else got
    It took me a month to find my mcmr10 second hand on reddit and that was with looking at old post in the sale section and messaging those people who bought them if they wanted to sell theirs (stocking people basically). What length are you looking for? Geissele has 2 different 9.5in on their blem site in stock.
    If you're looking for a mcmr10 for an 11.5 build, its going to be hard to find something similar b/c it's actually 10.5 inches long. I think the midwest is also 10.5 but I don't like how the mlok slots aren't staggered. The troy slots are staggered but I think the rail is 10inches long. These were the issues I was running into which is why only the mcmr would do for me. You may not care about these things and if that's the case the midwest or troy are pretty good alternatives.

    I'm a fan of the mcmr's

    It’s actually for 16” barrel, so I’m looking @ 15” for this gun.

    The staggering is an excellent point.

    Then the troy might be your best bet. Or an SLR rail.
    I'll sell you my mcmr15 for eleventy billion dollars :anonymous:

    I think when I looked into this, the ones that had staggered slots weren't all actually mlok slots. Only the slots on teh 3,6,9 oclock were actual mlok slots, the others slots were larger and more rounded.

    If I couldn't find the mcmr10, that was going to be my backup plan though. I really only use the 3,6,9 o clock slots anyways.

    I’ve never found a need to seek out offset slots personally

    I tried a BCM MCMR once and didn’t care for it...certainly no issue with it, just didn’t do anything for me and it’s a lot easier to get a MI ultralite

    I currently run MI or Troy on on the guns I have rails on

    been hunting for a reasonably priced wedgelock for awhile to try it out but SOLGW ones are basically impossible, FN doesn’t sell them separately, Hodge is overpriced as is Zev...soooo nope
