I sorta like a shorter handguard. I like to see some barrel sticking out.

Thanks Todd I was thinking I wanted some barrel sticking out BUT as soon as I had it in hand I knew it was perfect for me. I might do my Spikes Tactical lower and it's upper with some Barrel Showing

AR's are like women. Some of us like em one way, some like em another. As long as you're madly in love with yours, to hell with others opinions. (Still think it's nice looking, just not what I tend to desire.)

Then there're some of us who like our women and ARs ANY way!
