Check out the Alexander Arms G10 composite handguard at about half the price of the PRI one and much lighter.

These from Lancer look nice. I plan on trying one out on my next build.

I went with a Clark Custom. Good bang for the buck forearm.

I will def have one of the Lancer ones for an upcoming build just because it looks awesome. With that said, I didn't like the idea of the tube being glued to something so I went with the AP Customs one. For the price, its great. Really good finish, attaches with a clamping system to the stock barrel nut, very easy install. There is a mini review of it I did over in the rifles and uppers section down below this.
