Two-Piece, Slotted Design; Cools AR-15 Barrels
Lightweight, two-piece aluminum handguard eliminates exterior pressure points on AR-15 barrels to help increase accuracy. Longitudinal slots allow excess barrel heat to rapidly dissipate. Tube stays cooler for increased shooter comfort. Extra rigid design is made from extruded aluminum. Separate barrel nut and forend tube thread together for easy installation. Completely replaces the plastic, factory handguard, barrel nut and front cap.
