Default Looking for 6"(?) factory handguard rails

I am having some trouble finding some 6" (I believe I am measuring correctly) factory handguard rails (ebay cheapies) for my S&W M&P AR15. I keep finding lots of 5" and 3" but nothing that looks like it fits the way this one does in this youtube video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwbNPn5euD4&t

Am I measuring wrong or have I been looking at the right ones the whole time, thinking they are the incorrect size?

Are you looking for a free float hand guard or the exact one as the video? If you want to get the same one as the video you’ll need to get one to match your gas system and I’m assuming it’s a carbine gas system due to it’s short length. If you want a free float HG you’ll have to consider either keeping the A2 FSB, a low profile GB, or a Picatinny rail GB.

A quick google search will help you with the length of the gas system, from there determine what setup you want to go with. Keep in mind, if you go free float with a low pro GB, you’ll want your HG to extend past it.

You know what, totally read your post wrong. My apologies. Scratch everything I said.
