What size hand guards do I need?

Hi all,
I'm looking for some reassurance before I place an order for some new hand guards for my SBR. It's a LMT with a 10.5" barrel. I'm wanting to go with a magpul hand guards and a magpul stock. Would the carbine length hand guards be the ones I need?

Yep, carbine length

You can verify by measuring the handguards, too.

7" = Carbine
9" = Midlength
11" = Rifle

Thats a nice lookin RIS from here, why change it?

Magpul seems like a step back IMO.

It is a nice piece, I just don't want it on there any more as I don't have anything mounted to it nor do I plan on mounting anything to it.

I may be wrong, but it looks like you have a folding vertical foregrip mounted on it in the picture...

I did the same thing with my AR. Went from a long quad rail to Magpul handguards, because all I was hanging off all that rail space was a VFG.
