Looking at this handguard for my carbine

Anyone have one? Review?

I had one and sold it in the marketplace, It was pretty solid but I had no real use for the built in riser.

easy to install
movable rail sections

limited rear sight selection
no co-witness with Eotech
built in riser (may need low mounts for scope, Aimpoint, etc) may not be a con ?

Its sturdy and made well but I would try and handle one before you buy, just my 2 cents

i have one and love it. true iron sites with any optics are 0. But I love the look and feel.

It is alright. For a 223 rifle, it will work fine but a .50 beowolf really beats it up to the point that the mounting screws are eating up the barrel nut really bad. The ARMS SIR secures so much better to the upper but weighs a ton in comparison...
