It left quite the impression. Reply Perfect.Just the right understatement. Reply lol, Reply Don’t worry bro… It’s all good. I know it’s an SBR, but we’ll get you a rifle length handguard so you can C-Clamp the shit out of that sucker. Oh… Wait… Reply It would have worked just fine, had he had his support hand wrapped around the end of the handguard to keep it from being bent out. (The dumbass is *strong* in that gun owner…) Reply Immediately thought of this: Reply Duh, isn’t it obvious? He’s still using keymod! Come on buddy that is SOOOO last year! Reply +1 Reply Ensure your muzzle device does not have any exhaust ports located within the handguard. With the exception of muzzle devices that blast entirely forward (like the Noveske Flaming Pig) it’s better if your barrel’s crown entirely clears your handguard. Even the aforementioned forward blasting devices need to clear the handguard as well. Reply Next you’re going to tell us to look east to see the sun rise. Do you loosen up after a couple of beers? Reply Let’s not judge. This may be after a few beers. Reply Its rare to encounter such a vivid example of natural selection at work among firearms. Reply I hope his rear sight has enough elevation adjustment to account for that. I’ll never really understand people who, after they realize they have done something stupid, post the aftermath online so the world can see how stupid they are. Reply Your day is already wrecked. Might as well get a laugh out of it. Reply Nah! All this will do is bring out a dozen more duds who will do the same thing just to see if it is for real! Reply If no one is hurt (well, except for yourself), it might serve as a lesson to others. Hell, sometimes I think *I* serve as a lesson to others. Reply Exactly nothing. Worked as intended. Reply +1 It worked/failed as expected Reply Where do I find a handguard JUST LIKE THAT? Reply I know where there might be one for sale… Reply You have to make it yourself. Reply Somebody has never heard of cutting metal with explosives…..or physics. Reply Rosie O’Donnell informs me that fire can’t melt steel! Reply It didn’t melt! Reply Absolutely priceless! Lots of comments, there, about the muzzle “break”, and for once the name is correct! Sure broke that sucker! Reply Sigh. Now you know why I don’t work on too many AR’s. Reply Looks cool. Reply That’s a football bat. Gunsmith needs a whoopin’. Reply Tennis cleats Reply Probably did it himself. Waited forever for his SBR paperwork and couldn’t wait to have a professional put it together. Its only an AR after all. Don’t need a barrel vise or an action wrench or nothin’. All you need is a barrel tool and a torque wrench. Plus the respect that a 60K PSI gas blast deserves, which many don’t have. Its only air, I didn’t think it could hurt metal(they will say after…). Reply It doesn’t take a whole lot of skill to assemble an AR from parts. It’s like LEGOs for adults. It does, however, take some common sense to not put the dangerous high pressure, high temperature gasses inside the handguard. I’d never have expected it to burst like that. I’d have expected someone to slide the support hand too far forward and lose some fingers…or a whole hand. Reply Definitely recommend: https://geissele.com/ar15-m4-armorer-s-package.html Or equivalent. Reply Couldn’t/wouldn’t pay the Popular Tax for a Warsport LVOA rail. Reply Dunno what you guys are talking about. Handguard was obviously designed like that to help disrupt miraging off the barrel. Also, operator expanded the (so restrictive) keymod system to work with a wider variety of shapes and sizes. Additionally, the curved lines help break up the outline of the weapon system when operating particularly tactically to help avoid detection. This must be right before they applied the digital cerakote. Reply Laughed more at your explanation than the photo! Reply Too much derp? Reply Blowed up! Blowed up real good! Reply Nothing is wrong with the picture. The subject is pretty fucked up though. Reply Hope no was hurt. Some people are just dumb. Reply OAF Reply So, let me get this straight. This person *knew* they needed to mount their *plastic* MBUS back a little further to protect it from the blast, but had no inkling that the blast wave might be a bad idea for the rail too? Derp. Reply Remove the brake and put a different flash hider on it. Get some blanks and you would have a very effective tennis ball launcher. Reply it’s snowing in texas? right? Reply That’s the finest recoil attenuator that I have EVER seen. Reply When you want to rock that barrel recessed under the handguard look on your SBR but you are waiting on HPA to pass and don’t have a can yet. Reply Oh, … well, there’s yer problem. Reply Damm that 3D printer. Reply Now come’on, I’m a novice with AR’s, but even I know that’s a bad idea. Reply Well, if he just couldn’t wait to shoot it, he should’ve used a linear comp while waiting for that suppressor. Dumb. Reply Good advice, but 10 bucks says this thing is also wearing a pistol brace and a suppressor was never in the cards to begin with. Reply Nothing is wrong with custom-made handguard, made essentially for free 🙂 A few drops of fluorescent green paint will make it even more AvP-themed, though. Reply There’s nothing wrong with this picture. This is that absolutely predictable outcome of a stupid idea. Reply He just designed a wanker rail for a blunderbus. Reply But but but the tacticool bearded and tatted operators on the forum said……. And then the guy who was almost a Navy Seal one time gun shamed me at the class and said…….. And then the youtube guru said in order to get my arm the most medically correct position I needed………. So then I decided to one up everyone else so they would be impressed and ………. Reply come on give the guy a break, the extra long hand guard is so they can stand it upright in the dirt so the barrel don’t get plugged. LOL Reply Dumbest fad to come out in the gun community in a while. That and the tac sac. Reply I thought this was the dumbest thing: https://monstrumtactical.com/products/picatinny-to-keymod-rail-adaptor?variant=32156746243 Reply You made my day. Reply HEAT WON Reply Well, there was nothing “wrong” about the picture. However, the same cannot be said of the individual who came up with concept of installing a handguard over a muzzle brak.
