I've been looking around for a hand guard with a rail at the 1:30 position, but haven't really found anything, except what JP/Viking offers and I'm unsure how hard it would be to switch to those.

Has anyone else seen a hand guard (carbine length) that has a rail in the 1:30 position?

It's for my .22 upper...

there is a 7 rail handguard out there. i'm not positive, but i want to say it's by dpms. that may have a rail close to the 1:30 position.

The 7-rail that I'm familiar with... I forget who makes it, I've got it bookmarked at home. I'll get back to you on it, but it's 4 rails at 0, 90, 180 and 270 like normal, then its got 2 rails on the front sight tower at 90 and 270, and one more rail forward of the front sight, like an inch above the barrel, at 0 degrees. If you're looking for 45 degrees, I'd say use a standard rail setup for the handguard, then get a 45 degree rail piece from http://www.yankeehillmachine.com/store/rails.html you might be able to get it how you want.

Maybe, but I think five slots might not be enough...
Was planning on adding a JP short range open sight to it.

Can't you just take a tubular aluminum handguard and mount rails wherever you want?

Check out the Superior Arms, GG&G, or VLTOR forends. I think these are all 8 sided and you can mount items at 45degrees. There are a few others out there and all of them are expensive.

Maybe a couple of 45 degree pieces from either Yankee Hill (cheaper but taller)

or JP (http://www.jprifles.com/buy.php?item=JP-ROS)

I figure two of the single-slot ones, then something like this from Yankee Hill to bridge them:

Maybe?

I am very happy with my jp handguard and it was easy to install.
