Has anyone installed one on their rifle? Matt sold a ton of lowers 3 back or so and I found out Matrix does a lot of work for Ruger and Remington. ALG is sold out for my mid lenght gas barrel. Any other names like Aero people like?

I put one on a pistol AR for a customer about 2 weeks ago, he got it about $ 50 off Ebay, its looked OK, small barrel nut tho, if you crank that sucker on, it might never come back off

Rent.

You installed one for me too and the finish didn't match, remember?

I didn't care, but its something to think about if you're building a safe queen!

Any other handguards that you have installed that you may recommend? Aero seems solid and not super expensive.

I like the KAC handguards on my rifle, but a lot of people find them heavy and they definitely are expensive.

I like the Fortis stuff, some of the new Spikes stuff is awesome, especially if you can find it blemished, and then there is SLR if you have the means
