any experience with these? pics? I may build a varmint upper and these look an alternative to expensive rail systems (too much rail space I wont use)



THANKS

ARMALITE made some ar-10ts for Canadian military snipers with the BADGER handguard it seems to be a great peice of kit. I have never seen a POS Badger Ordinance product.

On a varmint gun I think they would be sweet.

I was thinking about one of the Badgers for a disapator build. Anyone seen any pics of something along those lines? Any opinions how that would look?
Link Posted: 9/1/2004 7:10:26 AM EST
I am not sure about the tools needed, as I had RB Precision build the upper for me.

Does anyone have any pics of the mounting end off this thing off the rifle? I am interested in seeing how it mounts and whether it would be solid on the rifle or not. What's to keep it indexed?

Thanks.

Thanks.




The mounting block goes on first (shown in photo), then the barrel nut (not shown). I have a copy of the installation procedure somewhere, I'll see if I can find it. A bit more complicated than a "normal" installation.

Cool thanks Parrandero. Does it feel solid on your rifle?

damn nice rifle.
and as for the handguards.....two thumbs up!

The Badger Handguards are awesome. They give a wide stable platform for either mounting a bipod or resting it on a sandbag.

Another great feature of the Badger Handguards, is the the barrel mounting setup. It allows you to set the amount of torque you want to use to mount your barrel, and easily align the gas tube port!!

that thing looks like it could get a headshot on a flea at 100yrds.

still looking for more pics trying to make up my mind

excuse me for my ignorance but im interested in one as well...thats considered freefloated right?
Link Posted: 9/19/2004 7:08:16 PM EST
Yes, The Badger hand-guards will free-float your barrel assembly

Interesting..........They appear to be constructed from the Bushmaster M17s upper receiver.

I have the rifle length handguard on a custom upper that George Gardner put together for me and it is a really nice piece of hardware. Very, very solid and extremely well made - like all Badger products. I went with an 18" barrel and the Badger gas block and it is a pretty sweet looking set-up (but beauty is in the eye of the beholder). I would highly recommend this handguard, especially if you plan on doing a lot of static type shooting.
