Found this item and I am not sure what length barrel it is meant for. model 1 sales has a shorty triangle in their latest ad; but shows it available on the 11.5" + 5.5" slotted weld on-flash hider. Will these only fit that configuration or will they fit m-r or CAR 16" models?

NDS-35 Carbine length triangle handguards

Manufactured by Tony's Custom Uppers, these high quality "A1" style handguards give your carbine a distinctive "Retro" flavor.

They require installation of a rifle style triangular cap (.750" barrel diameter version included) on your carbine barrel.

This necessitates removing your front sight base.

Also, are the XM 177 problematic in that they are too short to reliable cycle ammo> I was getting this from another post. I like the look of them, not sure of how I'd best make use of it though.

As long as you are using a carbine-length gas system, you are good to go.

I have several 10" and 10.5" uppers that run fine.  I use good quality components and have no issues with feeding or reliability.

Here's my XM607
