Looking for a simple, low cost, light weight FF aluminum tube for an 11.5" Carbine build. Any recommendations?

Thanks

One piece FF the cheap one would be YHM.

Two piece are easier to install since you don't have to pull the FSB. The MI is the least expensive of the three makes, the other two being Troy and Samson.

Bravo Company carries the MI and YHM.

I have some carbon fiber ones on sale for $65 shipped.

Whoa does that include hardware? And can they hold up to sling mounts, drill-in rail mounts, bipods, and the like? If they for sure can then i'm interested!

YHM is probably about as inexpensive as you're going to get for a one-piece free float tube.

If you're just looking for 2-piece drop-in railed handguards, then Midwest Industries is the way to go.

Thanks, I've got the YHM unit on order from PK. Last night I cut and ground the factory FSB into a low-profile rig. I might post a picture later today. Gonna put a Phantom on it too
