Ratings & Reviews
Cheap. Light. Made in the USA....
Excellent product. All my AR's wear GUNTEC handguards. Lightweight, inexpensive, made in the USA. Only CON: aluminum barrel nut. After taking on and off a few times, you'll notice the gouging of the nut flats. Otherwise, great for the $$....
There's a reason it's cheap.

I've been really disappointed with the installation phase of this product. Like the other lightweight Guntec handguards, the barrel nut requires a very odd 1-1/4" crowfoot wrench to install (a mm or two wider than your standard AR armorer's wrench which I have). I know this because I ordered a 1-3/16" crowfoot wrench and it is too small to grip the flats. I ended up using a crescent wrench which, as the other reviewers have said, marred the finish.
<br>The handguard screw holes don't line up with the barrel nut thread holes. Even when not using any shims (which is as far from vertical alignment with my receiver as possible), the holes are still about 50% too far forward. When you start adding thread shims the picatinny rail up top gets gapped way too far to look decent.
<br>I also had to remove my dust cover pin and put the c-clamp on the opposite side of where it's supposed to go because the pin sticks out too far and prevents the handguard from mating with the upper receiver.
Great for a lightweight build

This was a steal for the price. Maybe the lightest 15” handguard around. Great product at that price. But I would get this one when it is on sale, the anodize finish isn’t very high quality. Other than that it’s not a big deal. I like the aluminum barrel but, it’s well made and much light than steel.
Chinese quality is better

I’ve built many ARs and this is by far the poorest quality handguard that I’ve used. I wouldn’t even recommend this on a tight budget build. I spray painted it just to get a better finish.
