OK...... I've got a Midwest Industries on my 300 Blackout and a Yankee Hill Diamond Cut quad rail on my Rock River .223 Wylde. These are both nice and fit these rifles very well, but they pale in comparison to the hand guard for my next build. As I had previously mentioned, I had ordered a Lancer LCH5 mid-length carbon fiber hand guard. Well it came in today, and it is simply amazing! get your hands on one and i think you'll agree that it is one of the most bad ass hand guards out there!

PRI carbon fiber free float. Super light and takes a beating. Spendy though.

I have used at least 10 different types of hand guards and my new favorite is the Diamomdhead VRST 10.25. I finally got away from the quadrail design, and went with something more comfortable. I have used M.I, Troy, YHM, D.D, Spikes, Fortis, ect...I've tried the YHM smooth float but this is better. It has a triangular shape, and dimples for your hands. It feels good and looks good. It is one of the smaller diameter tubes. I'm using it on my 7.62x39 build I'm in the middle of. It is getting cerekoted right now with my stripped upper and lower

The alpha rail is awesome. I'm not a fan of the trx rail though.

Triangle fan here too. Have to dremel a little when I put a piston in, but oh well.

You can read about what others like, but there really is no substitution for handling a few different set ups to see what feels best to you. Then once you find what's comfy you can look through the vendors and see which is most appealing to you.
