Lakota Ops "Skyshark" 12" M-Lok Freefloat Handguard
One of the best ways to personalize any custom AR-15 build is by choosing your handguard. In today's market, freefloat handguards have definitely become the most popular. Freefloat handguards are made to cover the barrel and are securely connected to the upper receiver using a steel or aluminum barrel nut. Your handguard accomplishes an array of functional applications in an AR-15 build kit including protecting the shooter's hand from the hot barrel, offering the shooter plenty of space to hold the weapon for maximum control while firing, serving as the installation point for sights/optics, providing additional space for other accessories attached, and also, helping create the aesthetic that you want for your build.
It is recommended that your handguard completely cover the gas system of the AR-15, so please take your gas system length into account when choosing a handguard. If you'd rather just buy a pre-designed upper build kit already equipped with a handguard please visit our AR-15 & LR-308 Upper Build Kits page.
About this Handguard: This Skyshark 12" AR-15 Freefloat M-Lok Handguard from Lakota Ops features an M-Lok rail mounting system and sleek finish.
Anti Rotation Tabs: This AR-15 freefloat handguard is equipped with anti-rotation tabs for the purpose of maintaining secure alignment of the handguard top rail with the top rail of the upper receiver. Handguards that use anti-rotation tabs are most compatible with Mil-Spec upper receivers or AR-15 upper receivers that are forged, as the anti-rotation tabs are too narrow to fit over a billet AR-15 upper receiver.

QD: To simplify the attachment/detachment of your sling, the 10" AR-15 Freefloat M-Lok Handguard comes with 4 QD mounts already machined into it.
Type of Top Rail: This Skyshark 12" AR-15 Freefloat M-Lok Handguard is CNC machined with a Picatinny rail across the top of the entire handguard.
