Anyone have any experience with these? Is there a swivel stud for a biopd?

It is only $64 at Midway www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=112320

I don't believe it has a swivel stud, but could this be used on this handguard?

I had one for a while on my son's Colt H-Bar but we really did not care for it all that much. I just D&T the forend and screwed a sling stud into it. The metal is thick enough that it worked just fine. Still, something about it never really tripped our triggers and we went back to the standard rifle handguards on the Colt. On other rifles I use various DD forends. I like them much better and they look a LOT better.

I had one, no holes anywhere. I drilled and tapped holes on the side for sling mounting. It is also a little heavy, and with sustained firing, you can smell the rubber heating up! Not burning really, but is smelled! Nice to hold on to with the rubber, but how I use std. handguards and wear gloves.

Thanks for the input. A railed handgurd is a little out of my price range. I am looking for a free float handgaurd to put onto a 20" HBAR around $100 or less.

For a lightweight free-float railed handguard that is close to your price range, take a look at the olympic arms FIRSH.

They are pretty solid and will vent the barrel better. I have one on a carbine, and while it is no Daniel Defense, I still like it. I had one of the hogue's, and it's ok, but I ended up replacing it with the FIRSH.

I don't really want a railed handguard, any other suggestions?

Very nice! Wish it wasn't three times the cost but it does appear to be three times the product. Guess I need to save up a little mad money

The Hogue gets too friggen hot when your having fun and starts to feel gummy.
I got the composite tube from RB Precision and I like it lot's better.

For around $55 you can get a DPMS which is the best plain freefloat handguard I have tried.

Here are some other options:
