I was at a gun show today, and saw some AR-15 upper barrel/handgurads that I had never seen before. They were on 20" barrels and were a quad rail style. The air cooling holes were a six-sided hex design arranged in a one-two-one-two-one-two... pattern down the length of the handguard. I did not see any manufactures ID on them. The seller didn't understand my question on who made them, and would not let me take a picture of them.

Anyone know which ones I am talking about?

YHM Black diamond (http://yhm.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_4_45&products_id=49) handguards, perhaps?

Nope. The holes were a hex shape that looked like a thin honeycomb pattern. 1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2-...

I know I've seen the handguards you're talking about, I just cant remember WHERE, or who made them.

I believe what you looking for is made by LAR. Here is a picture I was able to find of their OPS 4 Upper.
