ok, i really want to do the above, but im wondering if there is anything i can do to attach it to car handguards?

i HATE HATE HATE HATE rails, and refuse to put them on my rifles.

I'm thinking some sort of strap maybe, like a hose clamp to secure it?

the #1 priority is it has to look clean
#2 want to make it myself
#3 has to be very sturdy as to support very quick draws from at the hip
#4 must be cheap....
#5 must be quickly detachable/unatachable

I frequently use the front of teh mag extension, but it gets hot, and i want a better grip.....I know I know already about the megss....but i want to keep my current reciever.


im thinking something that maybe screws on

I want it to look like this:

not sure if this should go in the build iy yourself forum or not, so please be gentle

If it is the railed forends you hate, are you are aware there are simply short rails available that attach directly to your stock forearm? Several vendors sell them and they provide an attachment point for grips and such, without going to the expense and trouble of a complete new forearm.

If you want cheap, here is an idea....

Get a wooden 1" or 1.5" dowel. Cut it to length and drill a hole in the center about 3.5" deep. Get a 3" 1/4" hex head wood screw and metal washer (that fits inside the hand guard). You may have to first remove the heat shield and attached the dowel to the hand guard. Wrap a tennis grip around it... Total cost, under $3.

It is not A2 grip and not quick detachable, but it works very well...

use a pistol grip screw, take off handguard, run screw down through handguard holes, feed pistol grip onto screw, put nut on end of screw after its through the pistol grip, put handguards back on.......SWEEEEEETTT

haha, after realizing how i will do it, i realized it was a little too late to run to the hardware store to get a slightly longer bolt and a nut that will thread onto it....

will post pics once it is completed tommorow....
