Has any dremeled their stock handguard to see if it had the same effects as the choate vented handguard. College kid on a budget here and was going to see if it would work to save money haha. Should i give it a try?
Alrighty guys, I committed and started this morning. I am almost done, but i put it all back together so i could take a few pics and show you guys a little more smoothing and I think Ill have it done. These are the pre-cut marks that i made.
I chose to go another route with my handguard. I always liked the look of the M1 carbine and went on a mission to find a wooden hanguard like the ones that were on the early Mini14's. I didn't have much luck so I bought a a wooden handguard for a M1a and adapted it till it fit my 580 mini 14 ranch rifle. Took about 6 hours to get it to fit and mix and match colors of stain to get it to where it looked like it came with it on there. It might not be to everyones liking but I think it looks sweet.
