So I have an spr mod 0 kit and I want to switch to a magpul hand-guard. I need a delta ring and a front hand-guard ring and the hand guard itself. Is that it? I have a front flip up sight with has a gas rod coming out of it. Can the hand-guard ring attach to that? Or what else will I need? There is also 3 sizes or magpul hand-guards 6 inch'ish, 9 inch'ish, and 12 inch'ish. But I only see outer barrels with front sight grooves that will accommodate the 6 inch and 12 inch hand-guards. I wont need to store a normal battery inside the hand-guard, only a fire control unit and a 9 volt. So I was considering using the real steel magpul hand-guard.

If anyone knows what talking about and can help out, I would greatly appreciate it.

Oh and this is for my dmr. In case not mentioning that made this post illegal. :)

If it helps, this is the kit that is on my gun right now.

RS will be cheaper for the handguard than PTS. You need some sort of gas block in order to attach the hand-guard ring, unless you have a full flip up front sight as opposed to a RIS mounted flip up front sight.

I can't name companies off the top of my head, but many make barrels that would accomodate a 9" hand guard. The 6" is intended for an M4 length gun, the 9" is more of a mid-length RECCE type gun, possibly an SPR, and a 12" is intended for an M16 length gun.

Hope that helps.

Well with the SPR having about the same length or the same length outer barrel as the m16 I don't see why he couldn't run the 12". I'm not sure how it would look but it would save him some money instead of having to buy another outer barrel.

EDIT:
RS mk12 spr's run a rifle length gas system so you should be using the rifle length handguard. This is assuming you wanted to stay as close as possible to the real steel version.

Thanks for the input. I know my current set up accommodates the 12 inch hand-guard. I was more or less curious about mid length hand-guards. With the link I provided, does that front sight automatically work with a hand-guard ring? Because that is what I have.
