716 DMR Handguards

At the risk of retreading a thread I couldn't locate...

Has anyone heard of replacement handguards for the 716 DMR?

Since the Gen 2 (or is it 3?) came out with the lighter weight keymod fore-end I called Customer Service and was told flat out "No it won't fit a gen 1, and even if it was compatible, we don't sell it as an OEM part."

I love my DMR, the thing has fabulous accuracy, but its a bench rifle. The idea of lugging it across country with that massive 4 sided pic rail monstrosity dragging the muzzle into the dirt makes me want to sell it and reinvest my money in a SCAR 17s.

Unfortunately Lancer's are only compatible with the 716 Patrol, not the DMR.

I really like the Lancer design and weight with the carbon fiber too...

I'm looking for a longer handguard for my 716 Patrol too- I find the original just a bit too short for my shooting style. I've seen the Lancer CF handguard too- not a fan of the style. I'm really not sure what to do at this point, but other than this issue I'm happy with my 716.

if you don't mind modding the original handguard, you could bring it to a machine shop and have them mill away the rails on the 3 and 9 position, and most of the 6 position (i would leave just enough segments for a bipod) and then repaint it.
