Help identifying an AR handguard

Wanting to replace this with something thinner and lighter. I'd like to see if I could find something that will just screw onto the existing barrel nut.

    Can't help, but I'm looking forward to my Ruger 556 having a collar you just unscrew and hand tight back down to remove/replace hand guards.

    Of all the PITAs associated with detail cleaning (sometimes several days in a row until they were almost White Glove clean) M-16s in the Army that dang hand-guard pull down collar release sucked, especially when your hands were oily!
