BLUF: I'm looking for a drop in M-LOK mid length Handguard for my M&P 10 sport, other than Magpul.

I known general my search fu is weak. To the point that the only handguard I can find is a quad rail Leapers UTG that is virtually guaranteed to fit with my railed gas block.  I also know that generally Leapers UTG is not looked upon by the collective here with favor.  Reviews for it are actually pretty good, but I consider the source so it's a wash.  It's also about double the weight of my current Magpul MOE M-LOK handguard. 

Does anyone know of any of the usual suspects that makes what I seek?

I put a Midwest Industries Key-mod hand guard on mine but I think I had to replace the gas block so it would fit.  It also free floated the barrel and made the grouping more consistent.   This was several years ago and I don't think much was available. For the MP10 back then.

Midwest Industries was the first place I looked. Specifically the MI-18M-Blk. It would be drop in if I changed to a low profile gas block.  The Magpul MOE SL might fit. The Magpul reps I talked to discouraged trying in the basis that if I do it and the hand guard touches the block and melts they can’t replace it under warranty.  Not a big concern to me st only $30’ish each.  Here again a low profile gas block would probably make it work without issue.

I’ve thought about the free float route but Smiths barrel nut from what I understand is a proprietary one which is why I’m thinking of changing  the railed gas block for a low profile unit and going with a drop in MI-18M-BLK.  Or swapping the MOE M-LOK for the MOE SL.

This is  M-lok compatible and clamps to the factor barrel nut.

From a cost to benefit aspect, I've decided to just stay with my old school Magpul MOE M-LOK mid length hand guard.  It's already on the gun and does what it's supposed or intended to do just fine, until I get the urge again to change it to possibly get a little more real estate for my gorilla length arms.   

Thanks for the suggestions my brothers, they are much appreciated.
