They pop up on the EE and GunBroker often, and you can get a new, unissued set from Sir Plus Supply.
If an AR-15 doesn't have some form of carry handle, something's not right.

No problem. For some, they're a bit more comfortable than the A2 handguards.

You're planning on putting them on a 16" barrel? If so, that won't work. Triangle handguards are rifle (20") length.

If you're wanting to put them on a carbine, PK Firearms sells carbine length triangle handguards.

I got a used set from http://www.sherluk.com , for $19. They were used but probably have some history. The triangular guards just feel right and look better IMO.

if you like the orgininal look of the triangle handgaurds, and have any interest in that era of rifles, or just want some help or to look at pis of others rifles from the old days i highly suggest that you check out the retro ar forum here on arfcom...
