16' Handguards

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I apologize for my ignorance ahead of time as I'm a new owner of a DPMS LR-308.


I love my new rifle, and have been becoming very familiar with it. I'm interested in getting a new handguard for it. It has an 18 inch barrel, and I have a low profile gas block on the way. Problem is I can't seem to find any 16 inch handguards that I like. Out of all my searching, I've only found about 2 or 3.


I don't necessarily want a quad rail, because I think that's a little bit of overkill, and I'm not going to use all of the rails. 


I really like the style of the Precision reflex http://www.brownells.com/rifle-parts/stock-forend-parts/forends-handguards/ar-15-ar-style-308-gen-iii-delta-carbon-fiber-forearm-prod54519.aspx?psize=48


and http://www.superiorweaponssystems.com/E1-15.htm


I want a 16 inch because I have an adjustable foregrip that I'd like to place right in the front at an angled position, and then have room towards the front of the barrel for a bipod.


I know that magpul handguards will fit on it just fine, actually had one on there and returned it, as I wanted more length. Would any AR-15 free floating handguard fit the DPMS-LR-308?


Any help and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, and thank you for your time in advance.
