This made me recall how badly I wanted a plain jane ATI black handguard for my first SKS that came in an Ultralite...while we are discussing contrasting bits, I kinda miss my wood handguard on black Combat Exchange look. Once I finally got the ATI/CE HG...my now deceased neighbor and I both destroyed a handguard ferrule and my wood handguard trying to drive the pin out.
I never did actually install the dang ATI....and ran that gun without a handguard for nearly two years....just the tube, a floppy STILL attached ferrule, and a cut and retied hair tie to hold down the rear sight that came sans retaining spring.
I only burned myself once.
A week later I had a cheesegrater that I could cram into the YES
still attached ferrule. This was back in the days when cleaning happened often enough to always launch the op rod through the sheetrock across the room due to ignorance and forgetfulness being at war inside my head.
When I was courting a K-Sports a couple weeks ago without the handguard, I thought it would look great with a cheesegrater.
Another thing that is cool, is cheesegraters in the white
. I stripped the bluing on one....pert dern rad.
