Those aren't Colt hand guards.  The Colt's have double heat shields and are much thicker.

Based on this guide -Colt Handguard Guide - I believe that they may well be Colt. I don't think the older carbine guards were double heat shield like the M4s - I could be wrong tho.

You are correct.  I have a carbine 16" upper that is all Colt.  Handguards have a single shield.

to your post. Not sure if you were serious or not, but those are Colts.

The old style Colt HGs (before M4 like you suggested) were single heat shield & thinner that the current M4 style.

Seems I may have found the wrong forum, thought this was the retro forum???

Carbine handguards with double heat shields and we have to consult a guide to see if single heat shields are correct?

What is going on around here?


Excellent score by the way!

Good score. That would have cost 2 or 3 times that amount at my local gunshow.

Please don't bash the guy, guys, maybe he did not honestly know? This is the first time I've seen him (Remman) post here.

We have reputation to keep up here in the Retro Forum & don't want to be compared to GD if we can prevent it. Right?
