If you’re looking for the perfect free-floating Handguard for that new build or to upgrade your existing platform, this one is definitely worth a long look. Aero Precision has designed another winner with their Aero Precision M5 ATLAS R-ONE M-LOK Handguard. It’s the latest rail to hit the market in 2018, it’s priced right and gives all the others a run for their money.

Gun Be Nimble. Gun Be Quick.

The ATLAS M5 R-ONE M-LOK Rail System has the perfect profile and weight for your lightweight build. However, even if that’s not your bag, the slim profile of this Handguard will make your rifle feel more nimble and faster getting on target. The Aero M5 ATLAS R-ONE M-LOK Handguard will definitely take your rifle to the next level. Also, if you’ve messed around with older free-floating rail systems, they can be a little tricky to attach right. The proprietary Aero Taper Lock Attachment System (ATLAS) solves that problem. A special barrel nut, wrench, mirrored lock-nuts and a wild turnbuckle screw brings everything together straight as an arrow and locked down tight.

Things Have Really Changed

Since the free-floating rail systems appeared, the firearms industry has grown tremendously. Materials have improved, quality has grown, and leading the way Aero Precision has never failed to improve. Their latest improvement is finally here with the ATLAS M5 R-ONE M-LOK Rail System. They changed just a bit over its older brother the ATLAS R-ONE. The one obvious change is a full-length Picatinny rail on top. That gives you more options in mounting accessories, for their still a lot of Picatinny mounted toys around. However, you still get the stability and versatility of tons of M-LOK mounting slots.
