Over the years I've ordered a half dozen carbine uppers from Bushmaster, and I've always replaced the handguards with some other unit.

Now I've got a bunch of them taking up space doing nothing in my parts box.

Anybody got any suggestions of a practical use for them? Use some imagination please.

I really don't want to just throw them away. If someone can't think of a way they can be made to benefit mankind, send me postage and you can have them for free.

Only four pairs left!

And a really weird pair of A2 handguards my friend gave me. They are really thick and have a strange rough finish like they were dipped in chicken batter. Or the mold was dirty.

Every man should have a set of matching end table lamps with CAR handguards wrapped around the column with a modified flash suppressor finial holding the BDU lampshade on. Didn't you guys ever watch Martha Stewart before she went to the bighouse? Sheesh!

ETA: I almost forgot: You gotta replace the switch knob with 5.56 brass for the full effect.

Hey Wes, gottem and put em on, I put the lightest set with the 16" hbar grip went on as well, Ill keep the other set when I have the cash flow to build another upper, to go with the yhm ff tube I took off, it went from this


to this

Hope I did the pics right, thanks again, and I must say Wes is a fine fellow



edit---before anyone says anything about it being on fire instead of safe, I cant put the gun on safe without racking it, and since Im all out of bullwets, no need to rack it-hence,it is on fire-thanks before hand

Another happy ending!

Now, who needs a new, unused set of A1 triangle handguards?
Link Posted: 10/25/2004 8:02:21 PM EDT
Hell, if they are free + shipping I'll take them.
Link Posted: 10/25/2004 8:09:42 PM EDT
Sell them on Ebay

Sell them on Ebay


I'm too lazy. I just want to get rid of them. I put them up for sale on the EE (with pix) but nobody wanted them.

Here's the catch: I don't have a box to send them in. Unless you send me a box, expect to get them in something like two shoeboxes glued together.
