Has anybody set there gun up with this? It's like some small rope over the hand gards or in place of them,I don't really know how it works. I have seen something like it on knives but never on an AR-15,is it tuff to do? If ot how would one go about doing it,is there a kit or something or do you just do it your self? And does it get to hot that way?

I've seen pictures of paracord wrapped around the handgaurds, but why? Is it suppesed to keep them from making noise when carrying? Av.

I went crazy with paracord a few months ago. I wrapped the forearm of a v-match carbine, the pistol grip on a 24" Ar, and the grip on a Ruger MkII. On the carbine, it was for insulation purposes, the aluminum gets hot under extended firing and gets cold when the weather is so. On the others, it was partly for practice and partly to give them thicker grips...the sort of thing people put Hand-alls on their guns to do.

Did that to a Choate folder on a 10/22. The muzzle end of the stock was missing some parts when I got it - Choate is sending new ones - so I just wrapped a few inches of para cord over it. Used the same knot as is used for 'whipping' - an anti-fray technique for rope ends. Works fine, but try not to use it on places where you'd need access regularly.
