    Looking into a possible project I may start. How long is a mini 14 handguard and what is the barrel thickness of where the steel clamp attaches?
    Example:

    Every other website is out of this, so I got a feeling optics planet might pull one of their 8 months to ship bait and switches.

    Accuracy systems has some different hand guards in stock: Link. Not sure if you need a new hand guard or want a project, but they’re good. I bought a new walnut stock/hand guard combo from them and it’s amazing.

    Thanks John!

    I really don't ever want to use Optics Planet ever again unless I have too. Haha

    Also this will not be used on a mini 14. It wil be a possible clone project, thus the request for measurements.
