Ratings & Reviews
Best, Hand guard. Period!
First off, I want to say how impressed I am with PA.com processing. Very quick turn around. I got this hand guard for my 18" SPR build. I couldn't be happier. The ergos of this guard are far superior to anything else I've ever held. I've had BCM, MWI, Sampson an Seekins to name a few and none of them felt as good as this hand guard. Fit and finish are top notch. The lock up system is solid and with the built in upper alignment tabs you can't go wrong. I'm ordering a 2nd for my 6.5 Grendel build. Thank you PA and thank you Diamondhead. You knocked this one out of the park!

I had attempted to purchase the Diamondhead VSR T handguard from another vendor but being I live in Alaska they were going to charge me an astronomical amount to ship it here. I Googled the product and came across Primary Arms and they had the product and shipped it to me USPS which gets to me faster than UPS and costs me less that half. I needed another od the Diamondhead handguards and they were out of stock so I asked to be notified when they came available. The following day it was back in stock. They will get my business.
The real star, is Primary Arms
The handrail is awesome, obviously. Fits the hand like a glove and looks uber cool. You can buy stuff anywhere. But who's got your back when you buy the wrong part. I did, and PA took care of me expediantly and professionally.

these hand guards are outstanding. Fit and finish are great. Very satisfied.
Great product, fast shipping.
Nice, fast and easy transaction. Handgaurd arrived quickly and well packaged. Item is very well machined and fit perfectly over my 7.62x39 heavy AR barrel with adjustable gas block. The 15" is pretty long though and I would suggest a long muzzle break if used on a 16" barrel.
Super Quality, Eligant Design
Very impressed with the quality of workmanship as well as functionality. Many comments about and where purchased, thank you P.A.!!

Overall, great experience. Fast shipping. Packaging and item was damaged, but was resolved immediately with great customer service- he actually called me to fix it. Will become a regular customer after this experience.

I only buy from Primary Arms. They're the best in every way!I wanted something unique that's not too heavy but sturdy. It's simple to install and looks way too cool. Especially after Cerakote! I do like the barrel nut design - easier to install & holds firm!FYI: I put it over a 24" heavy BHW barrel w/ .936 gas block. Fits close. Clamp on gas block wasn't compatible. I had to use a lowpro steel set screw block made for 308 (AR10). Worked great - room to spare!If you like the look it's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Love my diamondhead VRS T! Made my AR looks a lot better, fits my hand just right!

Very fast shipping and excellent customer service. I ordered this rail too long. I already used the barrel nut and a customer service agent let me return the rail and sent me a shorter rail. I was also allowed to keep the barrel nut since it was used and I mounted it. A plus plus for Primary Arms.
Super comfortable, looks great!

Love the Diamondhead VRS-T handguard. The finger grooves are perfect for a comfortable, tight grip no matter where I'm holding. The triangular shape lends itself well to a thumb over bore hold or resting it on the flat of my palm for off-hand shooting. Looks awesome, too!The 15.0" fits a 16.0" barrel perfectly. The angled front also does not cover a muzzle device (I have an A2 birdcage for now) or interfere with escaping gasses.I would not expect a suppressor (except for a very thin one) to thread on the barrel on a 16" barrel with the 15" handguard.Primary Arms had the lowest price by far, and they were in stock!

I have installed 4 diamondhead tubes on customers guns now and each was perfect . Only thing I could complain about would be I wish they would include one or a few pieces of rail with them .
Great rail, but measurements are not clear
The rail itself is fantastic! It feels great in the hand and installation is a breeze. However, the manufacturer's copy lists the rail at 15". The problem is that the full length is longer. Turns out the top part of the rail is 15", but the bottom is actually 16.5". This made the rail look too long on my 16" barrel. I returned the 15" version and bought the 13.5" one (whicich is actually 14.5").

Very happy with quality of rail. Preciously owned a VRS X rail and both are of utmost quality. I have bought several items from Primary Arms as well and they sell only the finest quality products and have a great customer support staff.
Unique looking abd feels good in the hand
The fit and finish on this are great. Gives weapon a unique look and feels good when holding the rifle.

First, I must say Primary Arms has the most outstanding customer service I have ever experienced. The item I bought is very appealing. It feels great in the hands while mounted and it seems rock solid.
Maybe the best looking hand guard I've seen
by Miles Terry
I've been on a tear lately building a few AR's. I wanted something different for the hand guard on my latest build. I'm still undecided on the keymod stuff and most of the Magpul options (and styles similar) just doesn't do it for me. I did a lot of searching and came across this one. It was a breeze to install although be sure you pay attention to the inside dimensions. I had to search for a while to find a low profile gas block that this would slide over. I went with the VLTOR clamp on as my barrel wasn't dimpled for the set screws. I paired it with Diamondhead's T Brake muzzle comp and I tell you, this AR might be the best looking one I own.As always, Primary Arms website ease of use and stupid fast shipping was spot on.
