AR 15 Hand Guards
« on: March 29, 2018, 06:46:00 PM »
I have a Aero Precision AR-15 Carbine (AREO AC-15)  with the standard military type front hand guard. I received it as a X-mas gift a couple of years ago and have had it to the range 2x. I've decided to start accessorizing it a little starting with replacing the hand guard with something that has a picatinny rail that will accommodate a vertical or angled fore grip and a light/laser. My son says I should go with a M LOK system but I'm trying to keep my $$ low and I have an accessory drawer with many cast off picatiinny accessories that I can use. Something less than $100. Suggestions......

This gun is liberty; hold for certain that the day when you no more have it, you will be returned to slavery.

I've done the standard Magpul handguard before. They aren't too expensive

dang, wish I could remember the name of the one I had put on my Colt  :frown:  I also had the front A2 sight (gas block) sawed-off and filed vs replacing with a dedicated gas block

that's a vertical grip/bipod combo hanging below - along with a laser/light unit, zero'd at 15yds - the scope at 100yds

sorry, not much help but maybe some ideas

^^^ this,

Unless you just hate them, you can just add a rail to the handguards you have.
In Texas, "He needed killin' " is a defense to prosecution.
