    I have it on my ptr. The only reason it's on there is the rifle didn't include a black handguard. It looks neat, but I really don't care for it.

    Would you please tell me "why" you don't care for it?

    my PTR91 came with the black aluminum slotted handgaurd but without the add on rails, i took it off and put on a new HK91 wide style black POF one from RobertRTG .
    to me the slotted one didnt feel right on the rifle,

    I don't really care for it because it's too wide and isn't very comfortable in my hand. I have the rubber protectors also and when I put those on it's WAY too wide. I'm never going to mount a laser on it, and probably won't ever put a light on it either...the rifle is heavy enough as it is. I had a bipod on it, but I doubt I'll ever use it, so once again it's just extra un-needed weight.

    I prefer the wood of the cetme over the plastic of the g3 style.

    It's a matter of taste I think for most folks. If you like it, you like it, if you don't you don't.
    IMHO it's sorta like putting 20" spinner wheels on a classic Corvette. They might work but they just don't look right.

    I agree. I'm not a quadrail/tacticool fan - but each to their own, as there are plenty of people who are. I also agree with KMagnuss - these rifles are heavy enough as they are on the front end - would not really like to start hanging extra stuff on it.

    Whats the biggest difference between this and the ptr metal handguard made by scorpion arms, other than the ptr one can have the rails taken off and be just a regular vented metal handguard?

    the ptr rail looks like with the rails in place that it would be narrower then the above pictured tri rail , also, the ptr rail has a nice set up with a screw to lock it in place to keep it from rocking, the ptr rail is built very nice and just takes standard rails

    The only reason I can see to put a Tri-rail on these guns is to have a VFG if you like shooting that way. The "cheese-grater" forends are not for grabbing and shooting... they are for mounting "accessories" and using a grip up front.

    I'm with the others... not for me. Both because of looks and weight. HK Wide Handguard FTW!
