I was in basic training at Fort Polk in 1971. I, and about a half-dozen members of my platoon, were cleaning our M-16 rifles after returning from the range. All the handguards in our group had the name Mattel stamped inside. We had a good laugh but didn't think much about it. We just figured Mattel had the contract to make handguards. Considering the number of troops run through Polk in those days, I'm surprised at the lack of witnesses to this item. Apparently, it was a very short run but the Mattel handguard was real! M.
