The patented Apex Handguard System is an innovative lightweight, free-float handguard for AR style weapons.
Advantages include: proprietary non-slip GatorGrip texture for comfort and control; strong, simple installation; and rapid heat dissipation. The Apex Handguard is engineered for maximum versatility incorporating the Controlled Tactical Rail Locating system (CTRL). CTRL allows user to select location of rails and rail lengths.
With CTRL you don't force your hands to fit the rails and accessory layout...you shape the layout to fit your hands.
Offset clamp allows for a trimmer, more comfortable hand guard, free-floating the barrel to maximize accuracy and heat dissipation while providing excellent air movement over the barrel and gas tube offering greater internal clearance than other tubular designs
Four built-in quick detach sling swivel mounting holes eliminate the need for a rail-mounted sling swivel
Easily mounts to barrel with a permanently attached muzzle device
MIL-SPEC hard anodized aluminum, matte finish
Mounts to the factory style barrel nut already in place on most rifles
Available rail positions exceed "Quad Rail" hand guards in versatility by offering eight positions around the tube at 45 degree intervals encouraging air movement over barrel and gas tube while serving as accessory and top rail mounting positions
The structural integrity of the tube is maintained by regularly bridging the accessory and ventilation slots
Hardware nitride coated to resist corrosion in 500-hour salt spray tests
The Apex Handguard including hardware is made in the USA
