What starts out as a very confusing installation system becomes impressive once figured out. The handguard slips back enough to cover a portion of the receiver on each side and the barrel nut/mounting sleeve work out perfectly once figured out. Extremely lightweight and slender, very comfortable to grip yet there are rail mounting holes at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock with a permanent rail at 12. You WILL need a small gas block but it clears most low profile models I tried. Hesitated to buy this but I really like it. I put it on a 16" barrel carbine so there's only 3" of barrel showing. I will be getting more of these!
Pros: lightweight, small diameter, looks very cool
Cons: Installation is a little confusing at first.
