16.5” handguard with 16” barrel

I’m putting the pieces together for another AR build and I have a certain look in mind. Thinking a Noveske Flaming Pig would give me the look while not risking damaging the handguard with a traditional A2 flash hider?

Seems similar but cheaper. This handguard is almost too cheap, makes me wonder if absolute garbage?

Too bad Magpul doesn’t make one!

Any of these decent?

total thread derail, but does anyone else have one of those Slim handguards? I have one, and it just doesn't feel right gripping with the C clamp grip. I prefer my thicker quad rail as it makes me have a tighter grip without thinking about it. I was thinking about adding a angled fore grip to give it some beef.

I have a flaming pig and a KAK flash can on my 300 blackout builds, both work great. The flaming pig was on a 10.5” barrel in a 12.5” handguard, it stuck out just a bit past the end but I would have no issue with it being right up to the handguard end.

I guess I’ll wait and then buy handguard after measuring the barrel and flash can. Might need an 18” handguard
