Hey everybody. I just bought myself a new SA M1A loaded. Can somebody recommend a good place for M1A parts? I like the look of the vented handguards. Also, why don't they make handguards out of aluminum? This seems like it would be a superior material to do the same job. I guess it would be a cost issue. Maybe I can get my bro to make me one.

Vented Handguard

91WMedic,

You might give Orion 7 a try. I got a brand new vented handguard from them at a reasonable price. With Fred's you might have to wait months. He's notoriously slow filling orders.

Here is a site that offers carbon fiber M14 hand guards.
Hmmm, no advertised price and my email inquiry to the linked hotmail address bounced. The yahoo address didn't bounce, at least not yet.

Too bad, they sound really cool.

Speaking of handguards, I've got a dozen or so I'm getting ready to refinish.

What colors should I use? I'm thinking a matte black (truck bed liner spray paint - BT did one like that & I really liked it), but am also considering doing a few in gloss black & gloss brown. Any thoughts, suggestions?
