Lakota Ops 9.5" M-Lok AR-15 Freefloat Handguard
The handguard is an essential piece to any AR-15 custom build. Some of the most popular types of handguards are the freefloat handguards. These types of handguards cover the barrel of the gun and attach to the upper receiver by a barrel nut. Handguards on an AR-15 build perform many crucial functions. One of these functions is that of protecting the shooter's hand from the heat of the barrel. The handguard also provides something to hold on to which gives increased stability to the shooter. Each handguard comes with attachment points for sights/optics while still saving space for additional accessories to be attached which can add to the aesthetic appeal of the build.
It is recommended that handguards cover completely the gas system of the AR-15 so when shopping for a handguard please keep in mind your gas system length. Please visit our AR-15 & LR-308 Upper Build Kits page if you want to purchase one of our pre-designed upper build kits equipped with a handguard.
About this Handguard: The Lakota Ops AR-15 Freefloat Handguard is 9.5" long and machined with an M-Lok accessory mounting system.
Mounting System: To provide firm and simple mounting of different accessories in a variety of different positions, the Lakota Ops takes advantage of the M-Lok mounting system
Cuts: In order to keep structural integrity intact while still saving weight, a crescent cut was designed into the end of this Lakota Ops handguard.
Anti Rotation Tabs: This AR-15 Freefloat Handguard comes with anti-rotation tabs. These anti-rotation tabs are used to maintain alignment between the upper rail of the handguard and the upper rail of the upper receiver. Anti-rotation tabs are most commonly used with Mil-Spec or forged AR-15 upper receivers due to the fact that AR-15 uppers machined from billet aluminum are too narrow for them to fit.

Finish: Type 3 hardcoat anodizing is used with the Lakota Ops handguard to increase corrosion resistance.
