need input for handguard
1 Attachment(s)
so i have this AR, stag carbine upper with plus package. it has this diamondback picatinny rail handgaurd. its nice looking and all but i cant hit crap with the MBUS because the handguard moves. unfortunaly i didnt realize that untill after a couple boxes of ammo and several sight adjustments. id get a group. make an adjustment. and then have no impact, no idea shots. it really boggled me till i saw what was happening. so any thoughts on how to remedy this or should i get a different handguard? i'll try to get better pics later

Wow! Definitely a change is in order. Let us know the outcome of your decision. Interested.

Ive had good luck with midwest industries ff tubes. The one on my wife's bcm is solid like a rock. Ive got a rra advanced operator type ff tube for my 458 socom upper and it too is solid as hell but its heavy. Both are used with buis

When it comes to railed ff tubes be prepared to pay for quality. The elcheapo ones are exactly that, cheap. Its little better than using a wet noodle.

Im putting a jp ff tube on my precision rifle build its nice but i dont know how it is for keeping zero. It wont be used for buis setup.

Another option is to get a iron sight that is the right height to fit on your gas block rail.

This ^^^^^^^^ . If you like your current handguard and are happy with it just get a sight steel or alum front sight that will attach to your gas block . Do not try to put a magpul or other plastic on it you will have major melt down :D
There are lots of great handguards out there that will do what you want them to do but they arent free either . I have bought over $600 worth of handguards this summer but I have finally found my favorite . Now Im not going to rush to change them all to that same one , the others I have are roughly the same size and they work great .

I'll second the MI ff. Not experienced on how they'll hold up, but sure look and feel pretty awesome. 450

If you are looking for a new foreend, Yankee Hill Machine makes some great ones and they have been in business a LONG time doing it, so no worries about quality or customer service. 77b13ec88a31f32a64db33

I dont think your gas block will fit under that rail if you intend on going longer . same length shouldnt be a problem though .
Of all the alum handguards I have this one is my favorite, helps keep the barrel cooler than my Troys and feels great in my hand and it will fit the factory barrel nut you will just have to take off or cut off the ring also comes with 3 rails and a quick release that bolts on
