Custom Century C39 Handguard - Our "Orca" Model
Click To Enlarge

This is a custom handguard expressly for the Century C39 Micro to replace wooden handguard with the curvy handhold.  Customers can also modify these to work on the Micro Draco and a friend did a great quick video on what is needed:  http://blog.roninsgrips.com/?p=751

When we were developing this handguard, it was called project "Orca" because of color pattern where the white body filler met the black curvature and the name kind of stuck :-)  The hadnguard itself is very durable given its significant wall thickness.  Since it was based from an original, it has a very snug fit to the pistol.  Because it is a tight fit, please note that you will need to use a fine grit foam sanding pad to help you open the handguard up enough to fit - do not force it.

Please note that this handguard is made from solid machinable high-temp urethane. You can mill it and mount a picatinny rail if you want. As a word of advice, please understand all local and federal regulations prior to mounting your desired devices on the rail. For example, adding a vertical handguard would cause the pistol to be reclassified as an "Any Other Weapon" (AOW) by the ATF and require licensing prior to doing so.

It is very important that you note this is a short handguard.  The original design had a curved handrest to purposefully stop a hand from sliding off the handguard and getting in front of the barrel.  If you decide to use this handguard, you must be very cautious to not let your hand slide forward in front of the muzzle during rapid fire.  We accept to no liability for people who do not heed this warning.  Please be careful and have fun shooting responsibly.

We custom make all of our grips and furniture for each order.  Because of this, our lead-time is usually at least four weeks and we post our order lead time on the home page of our website.  Please check the lead-time before ordering.  We had to add this as many folks are getting links from friends straight to our products and not realizing that we custom make everything.

To remove the wood handguards, follow these steps:

1. Remove the flash hider

2. Remove the screw at the end of the handguard near the muzzle

3. With a rubber mallet, tap the handguard forward as there is a tab at the end of the handguard that goes into the receiver. Note, the tab is about 3/8" long.

4. Once it has moved forward and the muzzle can clear the handguard, gently tap it down.

To install the polymer handguard:

1. These fit very snugly and you will need to use a fine sanding sponge, such as what Ace and other hardware stores sell to slowly open up the edges to get it to fit. Please, please, please do the fitting slowly by hand and do not use a Dremel. Do it with a sanding sponge, note where it is hanging up, take off a bit more, trial fit again and repeat over and over.

2.  Use a rubber mallet to gently tap the handguard up and then back.  Remember, the notch needs to slide in.  The mallet is to help it slide together - if you go banging real hard, something is bound to break.

3.  Look through the screw hole in front and look for the tapped hole in the barrel.  You may need to slide to handguard slightly forward or backward (I needed to tap with the mallet) to get the hole to line up.  Once it is, put the screw back in.

4.  Reinstall the flash hider.
