If you feel like selling a kidney, get a Geissele SMR. It's not cheap...it's not lite...but it is one hell of an overbuilt handguard!
Cool. Let me know when they arrive. I'd like the 13". Hopefully i can make up my mind either that one or the DD.
Nah thx. I still love my kidney over the Geissele

Now im having a lil hesitation.
My lower is Noveske Gen2 Chainsaw. And already bought a stripped Spike's upper.
Mated them together and found no wiggle, fit perfectly. Will the Noveske name overwhelms the Spike's? Should i get the Noveske Vltor upper?

Can't argue against getting a Noveske VLTOR upper

BTW- the Noveske Gen 2 lower is probably my favorite. It's just about a tie between that and the Seekins for me. Your build is gonna sweet!!!

But after looking the images of the Noveske Vltor, they look the same. Only price and logos make it difference. I'd love a match set of Noveske and their logos though.

The Noveske logo is nice and I have a soft spot for matched logos as well. I can't talk you out of this one if that's what you're hoping for LOL
