HI-- got these in a lot, and wondering what they might be for

Have two handguards from an unknown Mauser. One has a square metal cap in the middle of the sight area, the other plain. The one with the metal cap has writing on the inside, says T64, possibly TG4

Also completely unknown handguard item. Has a groove on the inside (possibly a cleaning rod groove?)

Anyone with any possible ideas?

First ones look like they might be from a couple M1916 Spanish carbines.

Second one, with the cutout, sure looks like a MAS or Ljungman handguard, though I think the latter.

the 3rd one i am 90% sure that it is a semi auto and the groove on the inside is for the gas tube/op rod

maybe a French MAS 49/56 upper hand guard looks alot like this

The last one is likely for a semi-auto, however it is not for a Hakim or Ljungman.

The first ones look a little like the Handguards off my Yugo M48a

Here's my opinion

#1 Yugo M48
#2 Spanish 1916
#3 MAS 49/56

thanks for the help so far

#2 or #3 are definitely not a M48 handguard. I have a M48 and the handguard is much longer

Looking at pictures, #3 seems definitely to be a Mas 49/56 upper HG
