Description

Gen 2 Enhanced KeyMod Handguards are now available! Changes include the addition of quick disconnect sling sockets, enhanced milling design for grip and visual appeal and a new profile for the picatinny top rail.

Our Enhanced KeyMod (EK) Handguards provide a lightweight free float design for your custom AR15 build. The KeyMod system allows advanced modularity past the current 1913 picatinny rail system. Machined to mil-spec dimensions and engineered to perfection, this handguard eliminates bulk while retaining strength and stability.

Features:

  • 1pc free float design
  • Built in anti-rotation tabs
  • Scalloped rails
  • Continuous top rail
  • 1.72" inside diameter fits most muzzle devices and 1.5" suppressors
  • Compatible with low profile gas blocks
  • Gen 2 Feature - Quick disconnect sling socket at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions
  • Gen 2 Feature - Additional milling along flats to aid with gripping and add visual appeal
  • Gen 2 Feature - New profile for the continuous picatinny top rail

Are you attaching this handguard to a standard threaded upper receiver?
Make sure to select "Yes" under the Bar Barrel Nut option above (shims included). Our handguards use the BAR interface and do not work with a standard barrel nut. If you are using our M4E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver, no additional pieces are needed. Purchased with a handguard, the BAR Barrel Nut is $20 ($40 when sold separately).

*Please note - This handguard is specific to the AR15/M4E1 platform. It is not compatible with the M5 .308/M5E1 platform.

Matched the enhanced free float with the enhanced M4E1 upper receiver for a super high quality AR pistol build. Several built for myself and friends. Everyone is extremely happy with their AR's. I highly recommend for anyone building a high quality AR. (Posted on 5/20/2017)
15" Keymod FDE Review by Chris Cuomo

(To start, I just want to preface that I bought the Gen I, but other than the build in QD mount in the Gen II, they are almost identical). Wow, this thing is light. I mean LIGHT. It weighs a little more than 1/2 the 15" Quantum in M-Lok that I have on another upper. It looks amazing, and the FDE color matches Magpul MBUS FDE perfectly. Some companies don't perfectly match Magpul's colors, but Aero knows what the customers want, and they hit it out of the park. I was sold on another company's free float tubes for a while, but now that I've tried Aero, I'm building all my future free float uppers with Aero Precision. The price, the shipping times, the quality; you can't beat Aero Precision. (Posted on 4/1/2017)

Bought one in 9". Loved it so much I purchased a 7" and 15" for other builds I recently finished. Light weight and very sturdy. Work great with the enhanced uppers and great even on the BAR nut they supply for standard uppers. (Posted on 3/28/2017)

I purchased a 9" for my SBR build. The fit onto a Aero Upper/lower Set was perfect. The look was amazing. Overall it simply makes the SBR overall build. Buy one, you won't regret it. (Posted on 3/8/2017)

Only complaint is the top four screw holes were less than a hair off from lining up with enhanced lower but I made it work. (Posted on 4/16/2016)

I was very pleased with the quality and figment of this hand guard. Only criticism I have is I wish more shims were included for indexing the barrel nut. I had to add another .001" of shim stock with the already included shims. (Posted on 1/1/2016)

First off, I received a handguard that was out of spec. One phone call and problem is fixed. Fits perfectly to the enhanced upper. I love Aero Precision. 2 builds and already thinking about the next one (Posted on 8/11/2015)

The fit to the enhanced upper is perfect. Excellent idea on behalf of the guys at Aero. Much preferred over the barrel nut attaching rails and just as good as a monolithic at a fraction of the cost. (Posted on 7/24/2015)
