OK... the choices from what I gather are:

LaRue
Daniel Defense
Yankee Hill Machine

The YHM seems to be the least expensive: that means I could get more toys along with the fore-end.

The LaRue and Daniel Defense are more expensive, but I hear people make laudatory remarks about these all the time.

Has anyone here compared these three? What I'm looking for is information from anyone that has touched ALL THREE, not just one or two of 'em.

I'm looking at getting something decent for my M4gery (I have M33's on it now that will go to my daughter's CAR), but at the same time, I don't want to make my decision based on what is the latest fashion alone. I really want to get what's best.

With that said, can anyone help me with said information?

There is 3 threads going on this right now. I went with LaRue. It seems like the best quality + value. Not saying the others aren't of high quality, just that for the money it is of = quality.

Also has the cool little TX logo. hippie.gif

I just got the YHM for my YHM lightweight FF
I thought I had a picture in my Photobucket but I don't I'll fix that tonight hopefully.
I like it a lot. Low price high quality all business. Very sturdy and can be mounted at any section of the rail securely.

Just remember, you do get what you pay for. having said that, though. The YHM should be good for 99.999% of the uses for 99.999% of us. Unless you are going to ride your rifle hard, and I mean really hard, the YHM should be good to go.

Denny made a good point. Troy MRF handguards are supposed to be top of the line. Larue's are nice but I hear they can be a little difficult to install since they require removing suppressor/brake and your FSB. I'm about to make a handguard purchase and I have narrowed it down to Troy, DD, or RAS.

Wow... I like the Troy!!! I really don't want to remove my FSB/flash hiders to do anything to my rifles, and the Troy has what I am looking for. Seems like a solid design, too.

Thanks, fellas!!!

After dremeling off the Delta Ring (about 5-10min of work). It takes another 5-10 minutes to install the MRF. Really easy to install.

The only downside of the MRF is it's weight, otherwise it's an excellent design.
