Most Stable Carbon Fiber Handguard?

Just got a Coda to try out and I'm really liking it. It ticks all the right boxes for me. Smaller OD than most tube style handguards, hexagonal shape, mount doesn't require the barrel nut to be timed, and it just looks very clean and refined. Little details like the aluminum cap/ring at the end so it's not just bare carbon really help make it feel like a step above.

I don’t think you can beat the Smoke personally, very strong feels great in your hand . And unlike the coda no trunion much cleaner and easier to install. I just ordered another one today for my 22 AR . Great people to deal with !!
The trunnion is what sold me on the coda. It's so much easier than having to time a barrel nut with shims or improper torque to get holes to line up. Just torque the nut, slide on the trunnion, and attach the handguard. Easiest install I've had short of a BCM.

There are no shims, it was so easy torqued it down and tightened just a touch more done 5 mins .

 

Can you describe the installation?  Does the sleeve fit over the barrel nut but under the handguard?

Another vote for Smoke Composites.  Running a front handgrip on the hand guard, I prefer that the M-Lok cuts on the bottom to be close to the mag well.  John made sure that I got the 10" PCC version of the hand guard even though it was not on the website (it is now!!).  Have ordered the grip, buttstock, cheek riser, spacer tube,  buffer plate and the enhanced buttplate upgrade.  Everything fit perfectly and ordered another stock and buttplate upgrade for the backup PCC.  Knocking 20% off cinched the deal!

Well Mark Isler is certainly well loved!   It looks like his forearms are only available in 2”.  I'm looking for something thinner.  Anybody handled a Smoke Composites PCC Handguard?  

 

wow $193 for a 15" PCC carbon rail that weights barely 6 oz with barrel nut? I love my Iron City Berserker but damn that's tempting...

For those of you running a CODA carbon fiber hand guard:  how many MLOK slots are milled at the 6 o'clock position? I'm looking at either the 15" or 13.5" to run on my 16" 3 Gun rifle.  (I want to mount an Area 419 ARCA Swiss rail and it needs 7 open MLOKS to mate correctly.)

Hi Bill, on the 10" PCC handguard couple of questions:

1.  What length barrel is it over?

2.  Did you get it without the rails on top or with?

3. If with and it's on a PCC can you send pictures or post?  I want to see how it looks since on their site it says the following.
**Please Note: Top Rails installed on a PCC Handguard will not line up with the flat top on the upper receiver.

thanks
