Will it fit? Help is GREATLY appreciated. If the auction is over, what would you recommend for cheap? I know, I know. You get what you pay for. I'm just broke. Also, I measured the stock handguard and it was right around 8.7. Just want to be sure. Thanks
It should fit but I wouldn't get it. Do you need all that rail? MOE handguards are a great option in that price range.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
