I was looking at the hot rod hand guard for use on an ar-15 build project. Anyone know anything about this hand guard? Can you add accessory rails to the handguard? There is a model with a hand grip but accessory rails might be nice. If rails are not possible does anyone know of a hand gaurd with a similar look that does accept accessory rails?

Any help is appreciated.

I do not think that there is any accessory rails for that handguard from what I have seen. What about the Viking Tactics free float/ JP 15 handguard? It is more modular and doesn't look so much like a paint roller.

ETA: welcome to Calguns BTW

I'll check on that one. Thanks for the tip. There are so many choices.

Just took a look at that one. I think I'll add it to my short list. I like the price too.

I use the 13" VTAC TRX Battlerail , It's another great choice.

Thanks Arkangel! I kind of like the look of some of the VTAC battlerails. I'll keep them in mind as I get nearer in my build.

Thanks! I think I like the gen-2 version better. I think I may have to head down to the local AR hardware store next week and handle a few to narrow down the search.

Yes, it is. Looks like I would have to leave off any accessory rails to use it. It would definitley be a different look.
