SNEAK PEEK!! SLR Rifleworks Handguard and Gas Block

SLR Rifleworks logoA few weeks ago I introduced you guys to SLR Rifleworks.  They are a newer company out of Florida that is producing some very nice looking AR-15’s and parts.  One of the things that originally caught my eye was there new 12″ INTREPID Series handguard.  The INTREPID has a 12 and 6 o’clock continuous rail and shorter rails towards the front leaving a nicer smooth surface to place your support hand.  This is a seriously sweet looking rail that should be available for purchase very soon.  They also have a really nice 12 position Adjustable Low Profile Gas Block.  The Gas Block is machined to fit under any handguard and can be adjusted on the fly with the included allen wrench.  The guys at SLR Rifleworks were nice enough to send me a pre-production sample of the INTREPID and an DA7 Adjustable Low Profile Gas Block to take some photos of and share with you guys.  These were just for photos so I did not have a chance to get any shooting time with them before sending them back but from the hands on experience I did have with them they seem to be extremely nice.  Check out the pics and details below.
