    *Cue Dramatic Music*
    FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS I HAVE AWAITED THIS DAY

    *coughs*

    Hey guys. I dunno if you've seen the prototypes from the Lucky Irishman on the Keltec RFB - RDB facebook page..

    But it sounds like its almost done..Initially the LI polled people in the facebook group for its length and general shape (Rhino rail look)

    How many of you guys might get one when these become available?

    It looks nice, but I mainly use my RFB for deer hunting, so I actually really appreciate the plastic in the cold instead of metal.

    I was genuinely curious when I bought mine why one hadn't existed yet, great to see!

    Wonder how they handle the spent shells...

    Can someone send me the link? I checked on his website but it’s not there and I don’t have Facebook. I cancelled my rail order for the RFB from Opticsplanet back in February so I can throw this one whenever it became available. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the link. Looks like I just missed the patriot Promo code. I tried pming him to see when they will come out last week but it looks like he hasn’t been on in a few weeks. Can’t wait to get this.

    Thanks for the link and mention, I appreciate it!

    They’re in machining now, probably 2-3 weeks until powder coat black is here. Another 2-3 weeks for Green (not certain there are enough tans to warrant the cerakote run)?

    They work on both lengths and yes, that’s the only one I have here to test it on. The ejection chute will side dump to the left, but even righties won’t notice.

    There’s an optional forward top cover that will allow you to remove your quad rail up front and still mount upper accessories, BUIS, etc up at the forward length.

    I know the RDB rail went on pretty quick but does anyone have a video for this one? I always like to watch videos before I work on something. I learn better watching videos or hands on instead of reading instructions (I may or may not have rode the little bus to school). Thanks gentlemen.

    I did not video the install, but the directions on the website help out quite a bit.

    When I installed the front standoff on the gas block, I eyeballed the standoff in relation to the barrel for level and tightened it down, holes were right where they needed to be. Definitely install the front screws (specifically the lower ones) first.

    So, forgive my ignorance but, it's there a clear cut benefit to having this hand guard over the OEM?

    Larger/longer for ergonomics, but mainly to utilize M-LOK accessories.

    As mentioned by Hunts 64 longer than the original handgaurd + quadrail on the carbine model..Also about 5 0z lighter with all the things installed than the previously mentioned combination.

    ..Plus it looks cool
