I just got a new Springfield standard M1A with the M14 walnut stock and I'd like to replace the top handguard with a walnut one. If anybody has any links or numbers of suppliers I'd appreciate it. Thanks, Jeff

I bought a M1A1 a few months ago and looked into getting the wood handguard. Springfield has them if you ask. Also, call up Fred's. He has had them in the past. I was advised not to switch. They put the plastic on for a reason. Rapid fire will cause heat that could burn the wood.

DuPage Trading has them and they look nice on a display rifle. Matching the stock may take some stain.

Get an early vented handguard from CMP (they're new old stock) if you shoot a lot just for fun, the barrel cools faster.

If you shoot a lot the holes in the handguard will create a rippling effect in the air and that could interfere with your sighting, that was one of the reasons for switching to a non-vented one.
