Although the American Build Arms (AB Arms) MOD 1 Handguard weighs in at only 4.5 ounces, it is heavy on useful features.

The ergonomic hand grip zone serves as a natural gripping point while the textured surface and hand stops on both sides prevent your hands from slipping during rapid fire. AB Arms' unique formula of heat-treated nylon and high-strength fibers provide unparalleled durability with favorable heat dissipation properties, not to mention considerable weight savings. The two-piece design allows maximum air circulation around the barrel, guaranteeing a cool touch even after hundreds of rounds. This handguard integrated with six locking pins, allowing it to fit rock solid on your AR15. It also accepts Mil-Spec rail sections, allowing you to mount foregrips, flashlights, or lasers. No gunsmithing is needed for installation; it simply drops in on your carbine length AR15s.
