    been looking for weeks and finally found one!


    Now I can do a T6 conversion without disturbing an original handguard.:neener:

    Nice find. What website (if you found it online)?

    Nope, not online.

    By chance, a guy selling parts on ebay ran across one at a gunshow.

    He was kind enough to be on the lookout for one and emailed me.

    Never seen one of those as "just a part." Weird.

    It's a handguard ferrule.

    It's the piece that usually has to be removed from the original wood handguard and installed on the new aftermarket handguard.

    It's often butchered by drilling, grinding, and punching.

    Even if it isn't butchered, it would have to be swapped back onto the wood handguard to put the rifle back in original condition.

    All the online sources for them have dried up and they've become rare as hen's teeth.

    I thought maybe you found one of those things that go up.

    Kidding aside it’s nice to be able to locate those bits and pieces.
    Not as easy as you might think.
