There are some drawbacks which he discusses also in his compare and contrast of why a shooter would choose one of these unique handguards over a standard hand guard. The process for constructing rifle parts out of this interesting material is highlighted along with some queries for shop owners. Finally, they move into what’s on the horizon for Brigand.
