    I have a marlin 70 papoose. It has a 16.5'' removeable barrel. Because it is a break down gun and designed to be ultra compact there is not a great place to put your left hand while shooting. You kinda have to wedge it in front of the mag but before the barrel. When the barrel gets hot it is not fun to slip. Would it be possible to put a 10/22, AR15, or other hand guard on this barrel without modifying the gun.

    i removed the sights on the barrel in favor of a red dot, so the barrel is a smooth 16'', im not sure of the width (around 1/2'' to 3/4'').
