Does anyone know if this is a 2 piece handguard or just a 1 piece handguard?

Does the rubber melt when the barrel is too hot? How does it feel?
It looks like a very simple way to FF a barrel. I have no use for rails or a bipod on this build. I'm just wondering how well it cools the barrel.

Its a one piece tube that gets very hot... Due to the excess heat that the tube holds, the rubber will soften and start to peel/slide off of the aluminum tube... Besides all that, they feel great...

just like any other std free float tube.

I have the carbine length model. I would say it works ok, but after sustained fireing the tube will get warm, and the rubber will slip a little. I like the diameter though, but I have bigger hands. I will be upgrading soon, but that is for a definite need of rails rather than the unit not doing its job.

If all you want is a tube, check out the YHM offerings. Some are modular so you can adapt them later if you want. Or keep the original handgaurds, and have a little more flexibility in the future.

Happy hunting,
