YHM is very proud to introduce our newest line of AR-15 handguards, the SLR (Slim, Light, Railed) series. These handguards were designed to address the two main customer requests regarding current handguard models. The number one request was to make a thinner handguard. Both versions are slimmer than our current handguards, the smooth being more than 5/8" thinner than the current quad rail design! The second most common request was to design a handguard that would accept most aftermarket piston systems. The new profile of the SLR allows for most piston systems to be used while maintaining a top rail that co-witnesses with the upper receiver. The top rail was redesigned so that when installed it creates one continuous picatinny rail between the upper receiver and the handguard. Also redesigned is the method for attaching the handguard to the receiver. The smooth (customizable) version allows you to mount accessory rails to the sides and bottom if you desire using the same Customizable Forearm Rails that are currently offered.
SPECS: Includes black anodized aluminum rail, SLR wrench, barrel nut, clamp, 5 attachment screws and instructions.
