    In my opinion there are no replacement handguards, it's nice to hope but this isn't going to happen. These handguards have been made in this way for more then 5 years. They were shipping them out with these for a long time. When the injection molds were made they probably screwed up on the dimensions and just made them in this way. To make a new molds it can cost hundreds of thousands of $, and two are needed. The market for these is very small probably only Canada buys them, i don't see any other country buying these because there are other cheaper more modern alternatives. We buy them because we are forced to, there is nothing else left. I don't think there will be any replacements what's so ever.

    You could be correct. Iíve got the Famae rubber end cap that is made for these but Iím not using it as my gorilla tape looks pretty good. Even watching other YouTube reviews from other countries, the rubber end cap is in use. So, you could be correct - this could be how the handguards are intentionally made.

    I would have bought one of these regardless of what is available - itís a unique and interesting rifle.

    I just got my Sg 543-1M delivered. not a HUGE fan of the cheesegrater handguard. Does anyone know if the classic handguard fits the modern military version of the SG-543-1M?

    Iím not sure if itíll fit or not.

    Maybe try some rail ladders, theyíre very cheap on eBay or at an airsoft store. Donít go paying magpul prices for cheap rubber.

    which part is nonsense? I think I had a conversation with you before but you're braindead and there is no reason to explain anything to you. I personally asked TI in an email about rumors about handguards and they didn't bother to respond to that question. They addressed everything else except that specific question. They are also on this post you don't see them assuring people that new handguards are coming in do you. So my advice you keep your bull#### rumors to yourself and let the adults do the thinking you're not intelligent enough to do critical thinking. Just stop spreading misinformation giving people wrong information.

    Well that would be nice, i hope I'm wrong. But lets ask them to declare this here publicly, keep in mind they are under no obligation to ship out replacements. The rifles were sold as is and nowhere did they say replacements will be provided when the rifle was sold.
    @Tactical Imports could you please clear this up and let us know if replacement handguards will be provided for the SG542 flat top rifles?
