    OK, so I have decided to scrap the cheap plastic hand guards
    and move up to a 1 piece rifle length free float quad rail for my
    AR-15 carbine.

    I have decided to go with the Yankee Hill Diamond Forearm (YHM-9635-DX).
    For those of you who have done this yourselves, you know that the stock front sight base/gas block needs to be replaced with one that is low profile in
    order to run rifle length hand guards.

    My question is this - If I go with a low profile model like this:

    Am I going to wind up seeing unparkerized parts of my barrel that
    used to be under the old front sight post/gas block?

    Perhaps I should go with one of these?

    I appreciate your help and if anyone can forsee any other problems
    I could run into please let me know now.

    Thanks,
