What are these things off of? Denny said they came from a Brit rifle in Canada.
These don't look like Indian ones.

Solid orange plastic.

Denny said they are HEAVY!!! at least a couple of pounds.

If anyone wants Indian HG's why not just try to get some from the factory since they are still making them

Some bodys homebrew SLR handguards, probably epoxy or urethane resin cast in an RTV silicone mold. Or as they say on GunJoker...."a piece of folk art that will make a genuine keepsake!"

The metal tabs and large screw grommet are Indian. Are you sure they are plastic and not just wood Indian handguards with some kind of epoxy coating?

The general profile is Indian as well.

Denny said they feel like solid plastic and weigh about 2 pounds???

I had a black pair like that. They were odd as they did look like classic Indian in profile. I will do some digging as I may still have them. IIRC someone told me Century put them on some of their rifles, the black ones that is.

These came off a restricted Britt gun in Canada.

A lot of Brit rifles made it to India, Nepal and a couple other countries over there, they were then sold off and brought over here and elsewhere. Look at the mix of Brit and Indian parts on all the Century rifles and all the Brit buttstocks with Bengali and Indian script on them. Not surprising that a set of Indian handguards could be found on a Brit rifle.

Definitely looks Indian profile to me too. Most Indian parts look handmade, so it wouldn't surprise me if someone made these on the streets of Bombay!!

Really Cool Handguards!!!

Never got the Indian bug. Saw a bunch when I was there. Didn't really check if they were built on CAI uppers

It'd be awesome to know if this was officially done or out of pure boredom. Very cool handguards nonetheless.

Clearly the most hideous looking FAL parts I have ever seen.

Indian soldier scrimshaw perhaps. Pulling guard duty at 17,000 feet can give any boy hallucinations.

If the nose insert is actually steel vs molded as part of the h-grd they are probably wood that has been resin coated.

Maybe some of the troops or a unit wanted/ needed the orange plastic ones, but could not obtain them so they resin coated some wood ones. The ole 7 rifles short of all matching thing.
