Matrix Aerospace Handguards

Post by revelation » Mon May 14, 2018 8:43 am

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
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

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

I have a pair of STNGR mlok rails and really like them.
I can explain it to you, but I cannot understand it for you.
