Hey guys new to the forum.
I’ve recently picked up a Gen 8 M4A1 and have a whole heap of upgrades coming in however I’ve hit a bit of a wall in research with a specific hand guard that I’m after.
I’m after this specific one (link below) and as much as it says it’s compatible with the Gen 8 I’m a little skeptical. I’m aware I’ll need to buy a metal adapter and an outer barrel too, but as you can see the end that attaches to the receiver is threaded for a Gen 9. My guess is that the adapter would still protrude out enough to slot the guard with what looks like 2 screws to help tighten at the bottom, but being new to all of this any confirmations or advice would be appreciated.
I’ve also attached the photo below for a better view into the guard from the thread end.
Appreciate the help!
