I like my MOE. I also like my Midwest Industries SS15 G2 for a free float

the biggest reason i like plastic vs metal handguards is heat. i go down to south texas a lot and its already hot there to begin with so aluminum gets blazing hot then toss in some heat from fired rounds annnnnndddddd thats why i like plastic better...

Another vote for MI SS gen2 15" handguards. Comes with everything you need, rail sections, bipod swivel, tools. Super lightweight. Narrow diameter makes it very easy to grip and control. Easy to install. Easy on the wallet (compared to other FF systems.



As JonM points out......metal handguards do get hot. I usually shoot with gloves tho, as my bullet button tool is built into them. I do I'm kidding JonM, don't ban me plzzzzzz.

Another great reason to stick with plastic or carbon fiber.

In the heat an aluminum hand guard BBQ's your hands and in the cold it sucks the life outta you.

Being the "crusty geezer milsurp" type, I prefer the A1 and A2 handguards

I love the VLTOR CASV. The quality and durability you get with VLTOR is unmatched by anyone, in my opinion. Plus they look bad @$$!
