Unique-ARs now has a new line of handguards: the Slim Series. As the name suggests, these handguards offer a slimmer profile, with tac rail spanning the length of the rail on top in addition to M-LOK slots on the bottom.
Slim Series handguards are available in 7.25”, and the traditional stock lengths of 9”, 12” and 15”. All handguards have built-in accessory rail at the 12 o’clock position and M-LOK slots at the 6 o’clock position. These rails are milled from 6061 T6 aluminum, with an OD of 1.8”, ID of 1.55” and +0.25” for gas tube/gas block/piston systems.
To mount Slim Series handguards, Unique-ARs has created a new Mil Spec AR-15 barrel nut, milled from steel. The new handguards slide onto this barrel nut, and are locked down by two mounting screws that cinch the handguard tight.
