The 556 Tactical Evolution is one of my most favorite tubular style handguards on the market. Not only does it have all the same characteristics as its Samson Evolution counterpart but it has a much more unique look to it as well. In fact, I have one of the very first 15″ models off the production line and love it. Recently the big push in the industry is lightweight, modular KeyMod rails so it only makes sense for the Evolution to shed a little more weight and machine in some KeyMod slots. The following pictures are a look at the 556 Tactical Evolution KeyMod handguard.
The Evolution KeyMod rail will be a great addition as it has a slightly larger internal and external diameter than most of the super skinny KeyMod rails out there but still slimmer than the standard quad rail. These are currently in testing right now but are expected to be released at SHOT Show 2014, which is just 6 weeks away. You can keep tabs on these by following the 556 Tactical Facebook page.
