This handguard is made with 6061 aluminum extrusion that we CNC to the meet our strict standards with top quality tooling. The top rail is Mil-spec, as is our M-LOK slots. This is a total length of 10” that leaves about a half inch of barrel (including the threads). We now use steel barrel nuts that can take greater torque specs while not adding too much weight. We pride ourselves on quality and safety so our 10” handguards allow you to properly grip your rifle (or pistol) while still leaving lots of room to mount a angle grip, flashlight, laser and a variety of accessories.
Our Barrel nuts are cut from bar stock carpenter 4140 steel and Milled out. Giving you a better than mil-spec hold for your barrel extension. We torque our barrel nuts 40-80 lbs onto our uppers, giving no chance of loosening while you shoot.
Our billet upper is locally made in Phoenix, in our facility. We start off from a solid block of 6061 aluminum and CNC it down to spec. Billet is much harder and more consistent than forged. Forged as a tendency to crack and loosen through wear and tear over time. But Billet will last 5x longer than a forged upper. We now include all of our uppers with super durable billet. We Type 3 hard coat anodize our aluminum to make it almost has hard as steel.
Our 5.56 (also shoots .223) 10.5” Pistol nitride barrels are 4150 Chrome Moly V. (ChMV). Chrome, molybdenum, and vanadium are impurities added to the barrels. Our 5.56 nitride barrels are 4150 Chrome Moly V. (ChMV). Chrome, molybdenum, and vanadium are impurities added to the barrels. By not lining our barrels with Chrome, we can keep our smooth bore intact as we do the Nitriding process. The result is a more accurate barrel. By not lining our barrels with Chrome, we can keep our smooth bore intact as we do the Nitriding process. The result is a more accurate barrel. Our pistol barrels are more accurate than they look, shooting accurately at 100 yards.
