Hello all

I’m looking for a new handgaurd for my dpms 6.5 build. I don’t give a damn about mlok, keymod, or all the other crap. I would prefer solid or lightly vented. The only option that I NEED is a short rail at the 6 o’clock position. I have a jp on my 308 but would prefer a little cheaper. Any recommendations?

Aero Precision has some simple handguards that are top of the line and affordable. The M5 line is for .308, I have the 5.56 version on an SPR build and I really like it.

I just ordered a tacfire along with a moe rail. We’ll see. It’s was cheap enough to satisfy my cheap ass. I dont like the aero handgaurds, too holy (ummm). I do have three aero uppers and they fit super tight to my lowers and the barrels were snug.

Hey padom I don’t mean to derail my own post but do you have any links to a cheap lr308 assembled lower. I got a friend that wants one and doesn’t care about accuracy so the cheaper the better. I did order him a Wilson 308 barrel tho. My two are above my skill level.

yep. who called Tacfire top of the line? I've used 100's of Aero parts and the QC issues they have had and non existent CS over the past year has been terrible. Their handguards specifically laying on gas tubes. Far from top of the line. They aren't in the same leauge as SLR, Geissele, DD, etc.

I’m sorry who said top of the line? I wanted a cheap ass handgaurd that had a rail at 6 oclock. A long as the handgaurd doesnt touch the rail there all the same. Correct? I dare somebody to say to handgaurd effects accuracy then they better back it up. I buy on customer ratings. Read the ratings. They tell you enough. If 8 out 8 like it and it works that’s 100%. If 18 out of 98 has it break then that’s roughly 20% failure rate. Who cares about cs if it doesn’t break. Who cares about the best of the best as long as it fits YOUR needs. Sorry for the rant but I’m cheap and asking why???

It’s like trucks gentleman. Why buy a ford or Chevy or dodge when you could have a Toyota that doesn’t break. I myself drive a ford and it cost a lot. That’s why I’m cheap.

My .308 is all Aero Precision components (minus barrel, trigger, and gas block) and it runs like a sewing machine. Frankly I like their handguard design the best because it mounts to the upper, not the barrel nut. My work rifle is a LaRue OBR which utilizes the same concept and the Aero M5 is the only other upper/hanguard to my knowledge that does the same.
