I have a bushmaster M4A3 upper and I have a fab defense rail on it right now but I am finding my self liking the regular hand guards more but wish they were a little bit fatter I have seen em on some 14 inch builds and what not but not for the 16, I would like to get em in FDE if possible if not I can just paint em. Any help is appreciated and any info on how people attach light's on them I want a light maybe a TLR-1 Mounted off set to the right top of the handguard not the FSP.

I believe what you are looking for are regular M4 handguards. They're fatter and more oval in shape with either 1 or 2 heatshields inside. Plenty of places have them for sale.

Took my M4 handguards off and installed Magpul MOE guards - nice fit, great grip (wider than M4), looks good and the price is right. This was for my 16" carbine length AR. Not going back ever. :)
- Can add a light to the rail, but I preferred to use the bayonet mount.

Excuse the crappy photo. Better pics and review at:

add some rail panels like KAC's or TangoDown's or even Troy's will buff it right up!

Like I said I have a quad rail foregrip on it but I am not using a VFG right now and I like the fat old style M4 handguards I also lost my job recently so as bad A as that rail is Jicko I couldn't afford it.
