    You'll need something to guard your hand from the handguard.

    Not a huge fan of YHM anymore. they are not bad but there are better options for the money. Non FF I suggest a Troy DI rail. FF I suggest a DD Omega.

    Guess I should say why I don't like the YHM. they tend to be heavier, and they are large. Much wider across than the DD or Troy options. Once you add rail panels they become almost uncomfortable and I have large hands.

    The YHM float tubes are big around. I put one on my 9MM AR because I wanted to try a railed float tube and did not want to spend big bucks to try one. The first thing I noticed was how large in diameter it was. Most others are narrower side to side. I am using a fore grip so it doesn't matter. I am happy with it, but would pay for better quality and the thinner fit next time. :)

    I took a long look at this MI option before buying the free float YHM rail. A friend went the MI handguard route and his looks real good and works well too. I almost wished I had done the same.

    +1 on Troy but they are a bit pricier.

    Handguard? "Hand injury device" is more like it!
