Hello, I am new to the site, but a long time lurker.

I have searched everywhere, but am unable to locate a midlength handguard/quad rail for the ORC with the lower receiver height.

I will go with the MOE as a last resort, but would prefer a 2 piece drop-in or a free float.

Any help would be appreciated, and pictures of your set up, if you have this, would be even better!

Thanks in advance!

I guess that is my answer, ha!

It's unfortunate that the DPMS and Bushmaster have this lower receiver height. I really wanted to get a quad rail that was an extension of the receiver rail.

I have found rifle length, but I am running an A2 sight base in place of the shaved FSB that comes on the ORC. Looks like the Magpul MOE guards may get the nod.

Thanks.

On Edit: I did find the Apex handguard. Still not the quad I was hoping for:

The Apex Gator Grip is an excellent tube, very well made and rock solid on the rifle. I have the rifle length version on my AR-10 and am very happy with it.

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it.

Definitely a possibility...or a new Fulton upper.

How about this for $ 150?
