TAPCO Intrafuse AR Carbine Handguard
I guess I should have read the 1st review on this item, but even if I did, I would have thought that guy was doing it wrong, and that I'd be able to get it to fit. BUT I would have been wrong. 3 people spent an hour trying to fit it, before giving up. Contacted TAPCO and they suggest either grinding/sanding it which they admit would void the warranty, or to return it to the store. Phoned BassPro, and they'll take it back even though I won't be able to get back w/i the 30 day return window. Great service, just wish the darned thing fit!

Fits perfectly with my CMMG, it seems to be a bit longer than the stock hand guard but it works fine with my rifle. Great price for a hand guard that comes with both rails and covers letting you choose exactly what you want without buying a bunch of parts, and looks pretty good no matter how you have it set up. My only complaint is that the side rails only go for half of the length. It works perfectly for what I want but could cause problems for people who like to put a ton of toys on their rifle.

Not too good
I purchased this handguard for a Bushmaster AR15. On my first attempt to fit it to the rifle I was fairly certain that it was made for a different rifle. However all the documentation and research indicated that it indeed was made for my rifle. It didn't come close to a proper fit in many areas. Fortunately I have some experience with power carving and was, after a couple of hours of fitting, adjusting, carving, re-fitting, able to install the handguard. I was eventually able to modify the handguard sufficiently to obtain a proper, snug fit with no axial or lateral play. I purchased the composite over the aluminum handguard primarily because of the lighter weight and it is less expensive. My impression is that the manufacturer needs to inspect their molds which do wear over time, or at least perform a little QA/QC on their own and attempt to fit their product to a rifle. Even though the fit was terrible, overall, once fitted, I am happy with the handguard.

A little big
Well made fit great. The down side is that it bigger than the stock hand guard. I have medium size hands, and changed to a smaller hand guard. Past that it is great. FYI if you want to use a Magpul angled grip you have to get the AFG2. AFG will not fit because of the wings. Hand guard is to wide.
