Have any of the files members mounted rails like the ( Magpul 3 or 5 slot aluminum rail ) on the stock ft handguards, That could support the weight of a Steiner OTAL, Approx 5.0 oz's

I have a plastic Magpul MLOK 5-slot rail section mounted to my handguard through the vent holes on the left side. It required a small amount of file work on the rail section for it to fit, but it fits securely. The light I have on it weighs a little over 3 ounces with battery. I'm sure that it could handle a couple of additional ounces.

However, I'm not sure that it is the best idea to mount a laser onto a non-free-float handguard.

Yeah, say hello to wandering zero with a setup like that.
