Interesting set of all plastic handguards

If these could talk. Too bad one side is cracked, but still a hard set to find. Possibly some African dirt still on them......







No baby poop, though.

Oof..... collectors/cloners are going nuts over these now. A nice set is damned near impossible to find.

I recall tossing out rusty painted parts that people are paying big bucks now. Heck, you almost couldn't give away a sewer pipe S.A. barrel. Now, that same barrel is worth more than a nice Imbel. Go figure.

I have a set like that, newer with holes for the gas to escape. They are fatter and don't have the bipod cut. Finally took them off to put the M-Lok handguards on.

I had a chance to buy a pair cheap last week but didn't know what they were.
