    Default What's the difference between a v51 handguard and an MP5 handguard?

    As my title says, what's the difference between a v 51 handguard and an MP5 handguard? I took the handguard off of my V 51 from vector and installed it on my PT 9 CT it fit fine and looks great. Now I'm not sure whether I should order an MP5 handguard or another v51 handguard. Are the handguards dimensionally different?

    Order an MP5 handguard. I think they are the same but you'll be fine. If it doesn't fit the V51, put it on the 9CT and move the V51 handguard back to the V51.

    The last one I ordered was a POF from RobertRTG. I think it was $18.

    Thanks for the info, I just wasn't sure if the v51 handguard was longer in the trunnion area.

    I'll see if the PTR 9ct aluminum handguard fits on the v51 when I get it back from the engraver

    There ya go.

    I'll check a little later to see if the POF MP5 handguard fits adequately on the V51. My main safe is on a time lock so I can't get into it right now.

    I tried the new POF one on the V51 and it fits and functions fine. They look identical.

    Thank you very much I will just order another MP5 handguard. Just my humble opinion but it looks so much better then the aluminum handguard the PTR ships with.

    You definitely need to put whatever it is that you like the most on your gun. With the exception of going hardcore mall ninja of course.

    51/53 handguards are longer around the trunnion area. They will both fit, but the actual 51 handguard looks and feels better IMO.
