Default Change SR22 Rifle Handguard/Tube

tried searching around for the answer but didn't get anything definitive.

My fiance wants to use the rifle more, but it's a bit heavy...so I want to change the SR22 rifle handguard/tube to something else that will help lighten the rifle overall. Only info I found was that it's free float using a barrel nut.

Anyone know how I go about swapping that piece out and what would work? like would a magpul handguard work?

Any help appreciated! thanks!

I own an SR-22 and searched for several months for something different without any luck. I went with a Ruger top rail extension and small lower rail which I installed a Magpul angled foregrip, but of course its even heavier now. Good luck with your search.

Not sure if you have been on www.rimfirecentral.com but they have a Ruger specific forum. Just an idea, I haven't popped the question on there in awhile.
