We have new A1 triangle carbine handguards patterned like the original Colt Model 607. Kit comes complete with a set of A1 handguards, heat sheilds and a .750 triangle handguard cap. You must be able to remove the flash hider and front sight to install these. The round handguard cap must be replaced with the triangle model.
My triangle carbine handguards use the rear triangle retainer, which doesn't "index" on anything, and of course they're loose like a goose. Do you guys think that a set of PK's new guards will take away the sloppy rattle? I'd hate to get them, struggle to install them and find out that they move around. Has anybody installed a set yet? How is it?

The handguard are nice and fit good, now I just have to find a acp with a 5/8 hole.
I think an Old SP1 handguard cap should do the trick.
I was able to get around to installing a set of these handguards on an M16 this afternoon. I Am very happy with the product quality, finish and final fit. Everything fits tight with no movement or rattle. Attached are a few photos..........
Got my handguards in today and installed it tonight, no problems has a good tight fit.
I’ve wanted this since getting rid of my old sp1 many years ago; just like the feel and look.

NICE work. Interesting. Any more info on your build SamColt?!
7.5" White Oak Ultra match with the windage adjustable front site they offer. I took the hand guard cap from Pk and opened it up to just clear the KX3 flange. The KX3 is threaded on and it hold the handguard cap in place. I then made a bushing to put on the barrel and re installed the KX3 and it tightened up perfectly, Rock set it and there she is. A fire breathing ultra-match shorty. LOL I love the thing
