New Product: AR15 Slim HandguardJeff
Earlier this year we set out to develop our very own AR15 Hand guard; timeless in design, feature-rich, logo-free, tough, and priced for the hard working class folks of America. They’re here, and we’re impressed with the outcome! Our Generation 1 AR15 Slim handguard, offered in 13″ and 15″ lengths, and in your choice of either MLOK and KeyMod configuration. We’re very happy with these and think you will be too! Please see below for additional photos and information or click to get yours today!
Without sacrificing strength and durability, we used 6063 aluminum and strategically removed excess material to reduce the weight while maintaining a balanced rifle. Individual hand guard weights (including barrel nut and mounting hardware): 13″ – 11.85oz, 15″ – 12.8oz. The completed upper in the photos features our 15″ KeyMod Slim Handguard, a 16″ Ballistic Advantage Barrel, and VG6 muzzle device, with a total weight of 3 lbs (See bottom of the page for full details). The 1.35″ inside diameter accommodates both of the low-pro gas blocks we offer, and likely many more available on the market today.
Additional Features include:
- lightweight, 1 piece free-float design
- hardcoat black anodized finish
- ultra-slim dimensions; 1.35″ ID & 1.56″ OD
- continuous picatinny top rail
- anti-rotational tabs
- 4 QD sockets at the 3 and 9 0’clock
- scalloped flats for improved grip and overall visual appeal
- rock solid mounting system
- easy installation with a standard AR15 Armorers Wrench (or in a pinch, an adjustable wrench)
