Not the same as the John Masen barrel band, but Samson just introduced one that has a qd sling mount.
On the handguards, I've never been impressed with anything I've seen from the John Masen line. I'd be surprised if the hand guard is any different.
I thought Choate made one, but it doesn't appear to be on their website any longer.
I've never handled anything Masen..and since I can't order the barrel band from them any longer, I most likely will go with the PC handguard anyway
I believe the handguard choate made only fit their stocks and with their plastic barrel band
thanks, I've seen the barrel band on Samsonn's site... IMO it's a bit blocky even before you attach a swivel to it, that and the stock itself is set up for the regular old style QD swivel like the original Ruger Mini stock was
I'm not really impressed with the Samson barrel band, since it would have been just as easy to make one with a simple fixed loop on the side of it, to more closely match how the factory folder Mini-14's were set up...especially since I thought that was the idea of this stock even existing
I messaged Samson about their barrel band anyway, inquiring about when a silver finish will be available, (I also suggested they offer a barrel band, handguard, sling accessory package to go along with the stock) and they tell me they will have a silver one available in a couple weeks..
