Please forgive the poor quality of my camera. It only works well if you're taking pictures in bright sunlight of things that you don't really want to see clearly.
The new AR-model wooden handguards that are in current production at Ironwood Designs are excellent! They look much better than I was able to capture, but they sure do spruce up (no pun intended) my Golani!
Handguards are made of Beechwood, which was what IMI made theirs out of originally. I can't wait to get my second set! ARM guards will be out soon (version that takes the bi-pod) and eventually stocks and pistol grips will follow.
Sorry about the first pix. I re-stained and refinished the handguards. Hopefully these will give a more realistic picture of what they're really like.
I think they look great on the rifle!
P.S. Ironwood did the rivets. They come as a complete unit. They can be finish sanded and oiled just as they are for a more blond appearance (natural color of beechwood) or stained with alcohol-based dye to achieve a slightly darker tint. These also have 2 - 3 coats of tongue oil rubbed in.
