    15" AR handguard

    After a smooth 15" AR15 handguard, preferably no mlok, Keymod, or any other holes in it as I find the extra gas bled out of my adjustable gas block burns my hand through my current one

    To be fair my current handguard has a rail on it which I don't use, I think a smooth one would be simpler and skinnier

    I realise you're after a smooth one, but as an option I have a 15" Troy Alpha (with rubber inserts, bipod mount stud, and flush QD mount which fits in one of the holes.) which I could part with.

    Do you have a superlative arms gas block by any chance? If so, you can set them so the restrict gas flow, rather than vent excess gas out the front.

    Hey mate I just posted a wtb for a superlative - it's for a sbr 300 blackout. Does the setting to restrict gas flow rather than vent change the amount of adjustment you can do?

    No it's a Precision Pro one, stainless; after my first experience with an adjustable Greystone one
