When will they be available and what are some first impressions of this Handguard set?

Is there no interest in this product at all?

Does anyone have additional information about this handguard and who exactly is MI anyway?

Do they have a website?

The product should ship out in a couple weeks and we will start taking pre orders about a week before that.

As Rusty said, they make a lot of good stuff!



Those look nice.

Almost $300 for a non FF Handguard system?

I would like to know what the width is on these-comparing them to a KAC unit. I ask because the YHM is alot wider and I don't use covers on that one because of that.

I appreciate it!

Negative... Not nearly that expensive.



I don't know what you sell them for - but their MSRP on the MI website is $281.21. That's a significantly higher MSRP than the YHM, Surefire or GG&G units.

Indeed it was. So this is a different product? Looks like a competitor to the YHM series (and MI got it right by NOT having that goofy slot down the middle).

My guess is they are a similar width.

Paul, If possible, can a measurement be taken?

That's probably because the only difference between the YHM and the MI is the slot down the center.

They look like a really cool Handguard, Paul.

Here's a quick question: Will the top rail be level with the flatop rail? I know YHM had some issues but I'm sure MI will get it right.
