I have the one peice FF tubes and I highly reccomend them. Why not just get the FF tube? And yes the Magpul will work on them.

Had them on my Bushmaster for awhile now and really pleased with them.

The stock will be gone by the end of this week and be replaced with a M4 ace Socom

I just got mine with the Magpul covers and it's a great set up on my Bushmaster carbine.

I forgot to add, that I think for the price, ease of installing them, and quality I think they are a great buy.

I put them on my bushy carbine and absolutely love em. If you are putting them in a 14.5 or 16 barrel there is no practical reason to go FF in my opinion.

I have a set with knights panels on them.
best value in railed handguards yet. sturdy as hell.

highly recommended.

RB Precision has them. I'm sure there are some others as well.

This looks like what I have been looking for. Too bad they are still over $100.00. I wish someone made something similar for half the price.

I have the YHM Spectre kit on my 16" upper. Quality and value for what you get is great. Their customer service was great, the gentleman I talked to measured parts for me over the phone. If I had one suggestion, it would be to get the lightweight version of their handgaurd. Not that I don't like being able to beat a bear with my AR, but we don't have many bears here in Arizona, at least not big ones.

this is where i got all my yhm stuff. he had everything in stock and was fast on shipping and well, everything.

rb precision is also a great dealer to deal with

I think they are the best for the money. I love mine. I have the free float one piece type. I think these are better. Just my opinion.

Here's my M4gery with the YHM FF handguards. I love 'em, and so does my daughter!

Very nice IZZY Turrican!!

As for the price I think if you found anyone who made these for less than $100, the quality would begin to decline. Afterall, the YHM's are half the price of the rest of the same type setups. The FF type is just under $100 IIRC

I love mine.

QUIB.

Is that the new Magpul grip I see on your carbine?

If so, what do you think, and if so where did you pick it up?

no hijack intended, AKMan

carry on

Looks like a standard A2 pistol grip to me...

That is the rail system I use and I couldn't be happier with it.

I like them, very solid, full size on a Dissy.
