    Default Used MR556A1 with 14” barrel vs. 16”

    Any thoughts regarding 14” vs. 16” hand guardsThere is a listing on gunbroker that’s a great deal on a FFRS version

    The rifle alone is way less than a new one

    In reading the listing more closely. I see that it’s the FFRS. Is the MRS better?

    FFRS - "Free Float Rail System"? - as in the 14" HKey mod?
    MRS - "Modular Rail System"? - as in the quadrail?

    I don't think there's any rail system...OEM or aftermarket that isn't free-float so that's a bit of a misnomer.

    Looks like the seller can sell just the rifle. Can anyone comment on whether this is a good price for an MR556A1? $2195, or is it better to just buy new?

    I bought mine brand new 2 months ago (has the MRS) and it was only $2600 so $2200 seems high to me, but maybe it's barely fired?

    The claim is about 200-500 rounds have been fired through it. I'm thinking new may be the way to go unless I can get it for under $2k

    I got mine new on GB 4-5 months ago on a bid win for $1900.00

    I was really just looking for another lower for a 416 upper, but then I couldn't pass up trying to get a whole rifle since I had an extra Geissele rail. I'm not a fan of the FFRS that came with it.
