Fixed Or Removable Rail Models For Extreme Tactical Duty
Lightweight, machined aluminum forearm combines the accessory mounting versatility of a quad-railed forearm with a “smooth,” un-railed area for support hand comfort to aid in enhanced weapon control. Integral, full-length Picatinny top rail, plus forward 2.5" rails on the sides and bottom, offer plenty of attachment space for lights, lasers, optics, backup sights, and other accessories. Modular design accepts a variety of bolt-on YHM accessories, available below. Smooth areas are drilled and tapped to accept Add-On Rails for additional accessory mounting options. Side and bottom rails have receptacles for Threaded Swivel Studs; RIFLE version also accepts YHM Forearm End Cap. YHM’s free-float attachment system eliminates accuracy-compromising pressure on the barrel, while anti-rotation screws prevent the forearm from working loose even during rigorous tactical operations. Large ventilation slots allow plenty of air circulation to dissipate heat and keep the barrel cool. Carbine – Side and bottom rails extend around the front sight/gas block to get the accessories as far forward as possible and provide more grasping surface for the support hand. Cutout on top provides enough clearance to fold down a Yankee Hill flip-up front sight. Rifle – Extends to just behind gas block and includes a forward attachment point for Threaded Swivel Stud on the top rail.
