I modified the handguard and it's a real pain in the butt. The shaping of the wood underneath requires dremel time. The metal caps still need repainted. I had low expectations when i saw the grain on the red one but the color went on nice and it looks even better in person.Wow. Just wow. Beautiful. I want a wood set for my 5. If you're interested in a little project, hit me up Rich. Very nice. Did you mod the hand guard yourself?
