For a (somewhat) triangular, affordable ($35-$40), hand guard that's tough as nails, look into a Magpul MOE. You could probably sell the A1 HGs to offset the cost.
Magpuls ain't pretty, but they work. No burns from the gas tube on my thumb either (the biggest reason I hate A1 HGs) OE furniture on a several ARs. You could probably look at an AR in a LGS that has them. And if you like the feel, they may have some in stock.
But assuming that you have the correct gas system, they should go right on. Zach is right on about needing the tool of a spare set of hands to do it though. these guys say triangles work fine http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=3&f=12&t=234030
The same technique doesn't seem to work with the A1 L/R halves. Any tips on how to put them in?
First ever AR-15 mod
DMPS lower, DMPS upper heavy barrel, OPMOD Vortex red/green dot, A1 handguard.
I had to file the handguard so it fit over the heavy barrel.
