Re: hiding the gas block??
yes, i think it looks good. You can put as much or as little rail on it as you like. Mine came with 3 sections. The short one, one 6" and a full length. I put the 6" on the bottom, and the long one on the top, with the short one on the right side.
I guess it looks "tactical" enough for those that go in for that stuff. Its as light as you are going to get in a free float with rails without spending a ton. Nice and smooth near the magazine well. Doesnt grind your hand, and the grip is fairly narrow there as well, because you put as much or little rail as you want.
Its 1.745" behind the threads.
