Midwest Industries just introduced what I think is one of the coolest looking KeyMod hand guards that I’ve seen. Their new MI-SSK KeyMod hand guard is built off of their very popular Gen2 SS Freefloat Tube but they didn’t just machine in some KeyMod slots, they gave it some flare, some QD Sling Mounts and made it look like it is a completely new hand guard. I know looks isn’t everything when it comes to buying new parts for your AR but when it comes to KeyMod hand guards, they almost all look the same. Only a few manufacturers have come up with a different look so its definitely nice to see another one added to the list.
The first model to be available will be the 12″ called the MI-SSK KeyMod Hand Guard with additional lengths already in production including a 15″ version. The MI-SSK is very lightweight with the 12″ model coming in at just 8.5 ounces. Check out the details and pics below. You’ll definitely want to keep an eye on the Midwest Industries Facebook page and on MidwestIndustriesInc.com as these should be available for purchase very soon.
Midwest Industries is proud to release the MI-SSK-12 KeyMod Hand Guard.
The MI-SSK-12 weighs 8.5oz WITH the barrel nut, actual length is 12.625″, OD is 1.5″, ID is 1.3″.
It has 5 built in QD anti-rotation sling sockets, two on each side and one on the bottom front.
There are 12 KeyMod slots on the sides and bottom of the hand guard.
Will be available in 12″ and 15″ lengths.
Expected to be available in 3-4 weeks.
Retail pricing will be $209.95 for the 12″ MI-SSK.
