    I tried a few handguard till I found the one I like best. It is the AB ARMS forward handguard. Made in America also. I have posted photos. It is far superior to some others like Magpul. Magpul has slop/play in the two half's. The AB Arms has locking pins built into the two parts. When installed they lock together and become solid as a rock! The open slots are for adding the size mounting bars of your choice. When I come up with my AR the forearm drops very comfortably into my hand. It is a narrow handguard. It also has great metal shielding inside the guard. You get no heat from the barrel in the grip. See photos

    Looks bulky, but that could be a good thing depending on your hand size.

    Is it much heavier than Magpul MOE? Cost?

    Did a little googling...

    Pros: lightweight, $45 or so

    Cons: carbine length only (lame), but the midlengths are sure to come if their product has any staying power

    They have several types (colors) I bought the MOD1 which has the rail on top. The pro model does not have rail. The one I bought weights 4.5 oz. very light weight. Feels real good in your hand. Note the cut out for gripping

    BTW, hell of a deal on Amazon
