DPMS LR 308 Handguard

Guys, does any one know of a lightweight free floating full length handguard for a LR308 with a bull barrel. I got a great deal on this rifle and am looking to shave weight off it.

Thanks

The LR-308 comes with a free floated aluminum forearm. Its really not the forearm that is heavy but rather the stainless steel bull barrel. Changing the forearm won't make the gun that much lighter.

Apex has some very nice LR-308 hand guards. They are very light and very well made. They offer both rail heights for the DPMS.

This isn't a LR-308 but the general design is the same. I like the 'gator grip' non slip surface.
