Anybody seen this thing yet? https://www.clawgear.com/de/AUG-M-LOK-Handguard-20108de1646/

First time I ever saw it was this new article: https://www.spartanat.com/2019/05/photo-file-clawgear-im-einsatz-beim-jagdkommando/

It was discussed in a thread a few months ago. Someone wanted one the manufacturer wouldn’t ship to the US (fuck ITARS) someone was trying to help him google other German sites for an alternative. I don’t remember how it ended.

Edit: found it. https://www.ar15.com/forums/Armory/What-are-the-Options-for-AUG-Foregrip-Replacement-Rails-/43-498008/

I don’t think anyone has any actual experience with one.

I'm more interested in a picture at the second link. It shows a modified factory brass catcher that now only functions as a brass deflector...

I’m surprised no ones copied the concept of the sheet metal ones for the g3. Do it in kydex mold it so it stays in place from friction and tension with the very front clip into the ejection port so it doesn’t slide back. Heck there are even kydex versions of the g3 one if I recall. The triangle shape of the top of the stock plus the spot where it gets slimmer would be good for it all to grip onto. The pic you are talking about is pretty close to what I’m talking about and would probably be close to ideal. Plus no small screws like the Corvus one.

G3/hk91 one I’m referring to.

Man, that is pretty rad. I didn't even notice that part.

Claw gear handguard looks nice BUT it clamps on the gasblock, which seems like a terrible idea.

Yeah. Looks like it primarily uses the foregrip mounting pin and also grabs onto the gas block. Here is an installation video. The review on Spartanat says it does get hot under rapid fire.

Brass buster is pretty close the only part its missing is a part that clips into the ejection port very minimally just to keep it from sliding back and fourth horizontally. I’d imagine yours couldn’t straddle the port like g3 ones because it’s meant to function on a whole host of variations/clones and on some the rear of the rail would end up interfering with fit. I could be wrong but I seem to recall people putting Velcro on the stock and another piece on the brass buster itself to serve the same function. Still a damn fine product for the money especially considering the only other alternative costs a lot more and has multiple reports of its small screws coming loose or out and then causing weapons malfunctions. I know the g3 ones lock on like a stage 5 clinger from the clamping which your product has taking care of any verticals movement and the parts that interface with the ejection port handling the horizontal which yours doesn’t.

Again not dissing your product and I am very appreciative of your company for making neat products for all sorts of niche firearms and your and ratworxs work putting together the BullPup shoots I used to drive to them all the way from VA 2011,13,14, and 15 I think

I use the MA brass buster that came with my MSAR. I'm very happy with the brass buster but I'll admit to range use only.

I would consider another one if there was a way to attach it.

Uh, yeah that seems like a conclusion that could be reached without hands-on testing.

I try not to assume, but it does seem obvious.
