I see companies like Nordic have free float AR kits for about $85. Has anyone adapted a floating handguard to the Daewoo rifle?

The StormWerkz handguards are free floating. Not an adapted handguard but purpose built for the K2/DR200

While I like your forend furniture, they're still "tactical". I'm thinking of something more like the free float tubes that were big around Y2K, before Yankee Hill, Midwest, and Magpul put out the parts-hangers like that. I know its not considered hip, but I always thought an AR15 floater in .300 Whisper was a classic combination. Not that I would do a Whisper Daewoo (I'd have Moses cut an SPC barrel before I'd waste money on a Whisper), but I still like the look.

This is what I'm talking about:

It would be one thing if the barrels were attached with the same type nut as on an AR but the way it is doesn't lend itself to a simple attachment. Then there is the dimension envelope of the barrel/piston.
