Doah, just looked closely at picture but still wonder about the removability.
The free float tube would stop just short of gas block. It is easily removed or could be locktited. Here's a closeup of barrel nut with threads for freefloat tube.

The nose cone is Great for testing against a Tree or for frame for a steady straight shot. I paid $95.00 for it on sale thru Optics Planet, it's made by Advanced Technologies Incorporated or ATI and you can see the one that I have but mine didn't come with any rail attachments but luckily I had a few extra rail attachments from a Troy Battle Rail that,I had put on a 223 Wylde & with a little tweaking they fit just fine. Check out the link below, check it out and then look for one on sale somewhere. You can't go wrong, just make sure you get a1 piece rail & not a Two piece (although I've not owned a 2 piece)
The choices are certainly tough. I chose the Apex because of the gripping surface & the robust mounting system.
Man that's an awesome looking grip!....and reasonably priced! .................Comfortable?
