One of the most important parts of an AR-15 is the handguard. Handguards have gone through many changes over the years from the plastic clamshell-style to the free float system. Both systems give the shooter a comfortable grip while protecting their hand from the heat that radiates from the barrel. Both systems have many different designs and features built into them but the free float system tends to be more modular. While some of the drop-in handguards offer M-Lok slots and QD mount points, most free float systems offer those same options and usually more available slots. Most handguard options have built-in options for mounting lights, lasers, pop-up sights, etc., and those that don't have them built-in may have M-Lok or Keymod options for mounting accessories. It is recommended that a free-float handguard completely covers the gas system so please consider your gas system length when shopping for a handguard. If you wish to buy a pre-designed upper build kit equipped with a handguard please visit our AR-15 & LR-308 upper build kits page.
About This Handguard: This 15" long Slant-Pro Javelin AR-15 Freefloat Handguard from Gauntlet Arms features an M-Lok rail mounting system
QD: To simplify the attachment/detachment of your sling, the Slant-Pro handguard comes with 4 QD mounts already machined into it.
Finish: Type 3 hardcoat anodizing is used with the Slant-Pro handguard to increase corrosion resistance.
Cuts: In order to keep structural integrity intact while still saving weight, an oblong cut was designed into this Slant-Pro handguard.
Anti-Rotation Tabs: The anti-rotation tabs equipped on this AR-15 freefloat handguard are used for indexing the handguard top rail to maintain alignment with the top rail of the upper receiver. Handguards with anti-rotation tabs are recommended to be used with Mil-Spec upper receivers or other forged AR-15 uppers as they are too narrow to fit within the dimensions of AR-15 uppers machined from billet aluminum.
Material Of Handguard: Due to the need to have light yet strong handguards, the Gauntlet Arms Slant-Pro AR-15 freefloat handguard is constructed from 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum extrusion.
