Building a 300 black out for running down pigs. I've got all the parts except for a handguard.

I really like the Troy Alpha rail but can't see spending $180 on one.

I want a handguard that is 15" long and if it has rails I really only want one on top with the ability to add a small rail section for a light or a Harris bipod.

What would yall suggest?

That is a real good deal on that Seekins at Primary Arm. I bought a ALG Defense 13 in from Primary Arma back in May for $90 it was a holiday weekend sale as well.

Look on Ebay, you can get a nice one for $70. I've bought many off there.

I would never pay those ridiculous prices for a handguard.

I have this 15" Keymod from Road Runner on one of my AR's - like it very much and it's priced very reasonable at $90. I noticed the Seekins linked to above has gone back up:

Thanks Doc, you did like I did. Mid guards cost more than pistol, carbine, rifle because they're harder to get cheap, especially when you want the proper length to keep the A2 front sight like me (weird yes). eBay is getting really stupid on what they don't allow too but I found what I needed and I would never consider buying a free float for $80....$90....$150??? Didn't make sense to me on a rifle with nice parts built for less than $500. Others like to see how much they can spend. I try to make the best of frugality.

I really wanted to use the magpul rifle MOE handguard but my gas system is only a carbine length. So if I did that I'd have no way to support the end of the handguard.

I've got a Magpul rifle length MOE on carbine gas gun. I use a clamp on A-frame front sight post.
