As we’ve mentioned in the past, Faxon Firearms has grown a lot over the last year or two with the addition of AR-15 barrels, now offering complete Direct Impingement AR-15’s and now they are offering their own line of AR-15 handguards. Faxon Firearms has introduced their new STREAMLINE M-LOK Handguards which include a 12 o’clock run of 1913 rail surrounded by 7 additional runs of M-LOK cutouts. They’ve also opted to not include a sling mount which I like because it doesn’t add bulk to the rail and lets you add an M-LOK sling mount wherever you want it. The rail is very sleek looking and is available in 7″, 9″, 13″ and 15″ lengths with an extremely competitive price range of just $135 to $149. Check out the press release and images below, then head on over to www.FaxonFirearms.com to snag one for yourself.
(Cincinnati, OH) – Faxon Firearms, manufacturers of the ARAK platform rifle system, is pleased to announce the release and shipment to dealers of its STREAMLINE series of handguards.
True to their namesake, the new Streamline handguards are a sleek and low-profile solution for those looking for a slimmer handguard with flexible mounting. Further, the Streamline features an uninterrupted MIL-STD 1913 “Picatinny” rail across the top and 7 facets of M-LOK cuts at the 90 and 45-degree facets. Rail slots are directly engraved with “T” marks during machining to identify accessory placement anodized or if customers opt for custom coatings.
The handguards are released in four lengths, 15”, 13”, 9”, and 7”. The handguard is 100% made in the USA from extruded 6061 aluminum. The handguards are hard-coat anodized black and feature a steel barrel nut. Mounting is extremely simple with common tools and the handguard features alignment tabs to ensure it cannot rotate during extreme use.
“We are thrilled to launch our next product line, keeping within our Company Ethos: ‘Quality. Innovation. Service.’ The new Streamline series keeps it simple while delivering incredible performance,” remarked Nathan Schueth, Director of Operations & Sales. “The handguards continue our push to make the best value products for the top and front of Modern Sporting Rifles. When customers think of uppers, think Faxon.”
The Streamline series is now available direct from Faxon Firearms and through its Dealer network. Launch partners include AIM Surplus, Recoil Gunworks, and Parallax Tactical
