Faxon Firearms has been pumping out new products at a blistering pace lately and one of their newest products is a Carbon Fiber Handguard. You might be wondering “Why would I want a Carbon Fiber Handguard?”. Well for starters, Carbon Fiber is 10x stronger than aluminum and 40% lighter. The new 15″ Carbon Fiber handguard weighs just 7.99 oz with a steel barrel nut. It looks pretty sick too.
Fusing Faxon’s innovation and engineering with Lancer Systems’ carbon fiber know-how, the STREAMLINE Carbon Fiber Handguard maximizes carbon fiber’s unique rugged characteristics with practical application. The rail features 8 complete M-LOK facets for mounting accessories and uses standard AR-15 barrel nuts for mounting to the rifle, driving weight down, while maintaining decades-proven mounting systems.
Optional accessories are available for shooters to maintain co-witness of optics and accessories and when combined with titanium barrel nuts, drive the weight for a practical 15″ handguard below XXX ounces. Already proven on champion competition rifles, the STREAMLINE Carbon Fiber Handguard is rugged and ready for anything a shooter can throw at it.
