    Setting aside my pennies for an overpriced NFA adventure, and recently saw what looked to be a 10" barreled AR with the handguard nearly matching the suppressor in diameter and appearance. Looked cool, and since I'm doing this purely for the fun of it, would like to replicate the style/ appearance. Unfortunately, I can't find the image anymore.

    Anyone aware of a suppressor/ handguard combo like this? Pics or links appreciated.

    Scroll through the SBR pages on AR15.com . Pretty sure you can find something similar on there.

    If you are talking about a hand guard over suppressor setup; they may look cool, but they are definitely not cool on the hands.

    Or any fun to try and remove if the can has a locking mechanism.

    Thanks for the info! Yes, not wanting to cover a can, just meet up closely to it. I'll surf AR15's pic threads.

    Shame that I'll have to pay out for both SBR and suppressor stamps, but the Feds have to make money somehow.

    It gets pretty warm, buy the OPS Inc cans will fit inside the Midwest Industries SS tube or the JP free float tube. One added bonus on the OPS Inc cans is they don't have a locking mechanism per say, so you can thread them off the brake when you want. Spikes tactical cans are basically the same. Spikes also has the BAR that will fit over cans

    An old picture of mine...I like the guard to cover the front edge of the can, looks better to me and mine is threaded so no issue removing it...

    The first is a standard YHM modular tube with a YHM qd can, but there's no latch for the qd which makes it nice. No problems with overheating . It does get war, but sustained fire with no gloves never made it too hot to handle. 5.56 NATO

    Heres a full custom build I did for a customer. Similar YHM tube, but the barrel is 8.1 (or something around that length) inches with an AAC 762SDN6. The qd proved a challenge so I just milled out openings to access the qd lever. .300 BLK
