Looking for a set of 6 hole car hand guards and have not found any surplus suppliers with any.
Anyone know of a good source? Would like colt or maybe a good copy. Does the RAA still look the same?
Are they still available? Checked GB even but I'm not too good on the search.

The last RRA's I ordered were Israel made six holes. They are close replicas to Colt and ran $35 if I recall. It was about six months ago.

Watch the used portion of the old EE. I saw a few sets of Colts show up in the recent past.

Well I bid but I'm not going to go too far.
Don't know the reserve but I'm not spending 75 bucks.
Thanks though.

I know, I wouldn't either. I just didn't want to insult the seller in case he's lurking.

Definitely check out the link above(cracked) in the EE

Somewhere a few pages back in the EE a seller had several sets of Colt 6 holers for 25-30 a pop. He still had some as of a few days ago. Unless someone has the link you'll have to search.

crackedcornish is the seller I posted,he has several sets and the delta rings as well.

Like these?

I bought three sets from this seller and they are Colt, in nice condition, and priced right. Not sure how many he has left.

Did Colt ever make the 6 holers in OD?

I don't think I've ever seen any kind of Colt handguards in anything other than black... unless you count the Diemaco / Colt Canada C7A2 furniture.



I don't think they make green furniture for the C8 carbines though.

ETA: I don't mean to hijack this into a C7 thread, so I will post this as an edit rather than a new reply. Here is a link to another photo that shows some of the more entertaining features of the C7A2, like the funky charging handle, ambi mag release, upper/lower color mismatch, and green furniture.

Wow CADPAT Green Furniture?

What brand are those? Not Colt and I don't think they are RRA. But, they are decent replicas.

I think SAW still has them, but they're pricey.

Thanks eveyone.
I got a line on a few now and it will get my new xm177a2 build further on it's way.

All the help is much appreciated and this forum (Retro AR) is by far the most helpful, Freindly and least BS forum around.
I recently have been here more often just for that reason. Thanks again guys.

I purchased a set of these Colt 6-hole handguards. They are great.

I sent him an e-mail, hope he has some left. I'm working on another XM177E2 build...

ETA: Just got a response saying, "send the money order..."

Well now he's out. VAAR might've gotten the last ones. He has some non-Colt 6 holers now, though.
