    Interesting, so the barrel is heavy profile to the 'A' sight/ gas block and then reverts to standard profile.

    Would I be right in saying (from dimming memory) that the A2 HBAR had a heavy profile...

    I would think the triangular guards would look slightly odd on the heavier profile A2/A4 barrel. I assume the A1 handguards will fit as is, or do you need to swap out the delta ring and front collar?

    Very good point Roger, also, considering they utilised NOS MK2 bodies and bolts to make up the L39's etc, it's odd they didn't simply dig into the parts and build the L42's up from the same stock.
