Default Service rifle handguard AR

Hi I am confused by the SR rules about handguards…what is not allowed per cmp rules? I see so many configuration’s. Rubber covers, rail variations more…

Thanks!

The only limitation is what a jury would judge a "handstop", and the sling swivel location fixed at the prescribed distance.

Here's the rulebook for you to download: https://thecmp.org/wp-content/upload...df?vers=011622

From P38:
e) Handguard. The receiver and handguard must be machined as separate
parts. Standard M16-type service handguards (which may conceal a float
tube) may be used or military design or aftermarket free floating rail
systems may be used. The rail may be of one or multiple piece design and
be attached to the receiver by means of the rail itself or with a standard or
special barrel nut. Key-Mod, M-Lok or similar mounting systems are
permitted. Handguards may be of any length and the front sling swivel may
be attached to the hand guard, but any front sling swivel location must be
fixed 13 in. (+/- 0.5 in.) from the forward edge of the magazine well on M16
configured rifles or 8.0 in. (+/- 0.5 in.) on M4 configured rifles. Handguards
or float tubes may not have any additional features that could be used as
a hand stop.
