Description

Our Enhanced M-LOK (EM) Handguards provide a lightweight free float design for your custom AR15 build. The M-LOK 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
  • 1.78" 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.

Nice Handguard, needs more gas tub holes for better alignment.... Review by Christopher

Used this 15" handguard for a build me and my son are doing in FDE. Received my handquard very quickly. Looks great...feels even better.
I too had the problems that there weren't enough shims in the package to make the gas tube line up. So stupid me decided to try and over tighten the nut and.......... I broke my armorers wrench. The little peg snapped right off. They should add more holes for the tube to pass thru. Then it would be flawless. (Posted on 10/3/2017)

Received mine much earlier than shipping estimate in very good packaging but with several nicks and dings all around it showing bare metal underneath. Possibly got a blemished by mistake? (Posted on 9/18/2017)
Outstanding handguard Review by Barry

I looked at lots of handguards and tried several before I bought this one. I wanted a free floated guard that would fit with a Superlative Arms gas piston system. This one fits exactly right. One shim and I was able to get the holes to line up. And after mounting up the gas piston block, the handguard slipped on and mated up to the receiver perfectly. The eight screws hold the handguard good and tight to the barrel nut. Glad I took a chance on this one. (Posted on 3/27/2017)

I received the 12" handrail and apon putting it over my barrel and muzzle device which is a overall length of 12.5". Realized the handrail is actually over 12.5" potentially damaging the handrail if i fired it. Was not happy in finding this as i am forced to go with a slightly longer muzzle device or different handrail... (Posted on 2/22/2017)

I own some of the version 1 and the version 2 enhanced hand guard is a nice improvement. Lightweight, great looking, and the addition of the QD mounts is fantastic. Love they seamless rail on the top with an enhanced upper. Only minor downsides: They no longer with with Magpul MAG603 Rail Cover, Type 2 covers. The rear location of the QD lock is great on my pistol builds but on a longer length rifle I would have preferred to have them on the muzzle end. (Posted on 2/6/2017)
Me likey Review by bouyscout

I purchased the 15" in FDE for a new build. Fit and finish is A-1. The cerakote finish was a perfect match for the FDE cerakote upper I purchased from AP. The handguard feels very solid once installed. I like the QD sling points and the feel of the handguard.

A prospective buyer may want to know the bar barrel nut only has 4 holes (90 deg. apart) for your armorer's wrench so, you need to use a wrench with only 2 lugs (180 deg. apart) or 3 lugs (90 deg. apart) to install. The gas tube will pass thru one of these holes so, you have quite a bit of rotation if the hole is positioned after the corresponding hole in the upper receiver. The shim pack did not have enough shims to make up this difference. So your choice is to either over-torque the nut to align or wait for additional shims. It would be nice if AP added another 4 holes for the gas tube/armorer's wrench lugs. (Posted on 1/31/2017)
Everything is perfect (update) Review by Thomas

Aero Precision really listened in to their customers on their new GEN 2 freefloat handguards. Their is a big difference between the GEN 1 and GEN 2 handguards. Two biggest features are the addition of a QD sling mount on the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions of the handguard roughly a 2" from the edge of the upper, and they milled out roughly 2.5" of material at the end of the handguard where a backup flip up sight would sit. With the previous version there wasn't enough clearance on the handguard which prevented a MBUS from working properly without trimming material off of the sight or the rail. Other nice changes are the serrations along the handguard that add grip when you are using gloves (thumbs up!), and the aesthetics of the end of the handguard where the BAR barrel nut attaches looks much cleaner than the previous version. Where it was this odd swoop, is now simply a vertical slash. 10/10 I'll buy another for my next build. (Posted on 12/18/2016)
Great sized freefloat for the weight Review by Thomas

I snagged a blem 12" fde when they went on sale. Great handguard for the price. Cant find a better value on another matching color fde handguard. Love how it feels in the hand, some of the other freefloat handguards are so darn small. The blem had some dings on the corners where it looked like it was dropped onto a table. Nothing that I wouldnt do to it the first time I went out to the range. Biggest blem is its hole pattern for the barrel nut however is out of alignment and the machining of the inside of the handguard where the bar barrel nut makes connection is off by about 1/32nd of a inch. Making the rail not line up perfectly. Biggest operational querk is that the magpul flip up front sights dont work due to the rail being so close to the handguard. I tried filing down as much of the mechanism on the front sight that I could but it still doesnt deploy very well. (Posted on 10/24/2016)

I bought the 15" FDE to go with the enhanced FDE upper I bought. The fit is great, and is very sturdy together. For a 15" I was expecting it to be heavier, but it's really not that bad. I'd buy it again for sure. (Posted on 10/16/2016)
