The GRIDLOK LITE M-LOK Handguard has a one-piece, free-float design that minimizes its weight. It's also precision-machined from 6061 aluminum, giving it the perfect combination of high strength and low weight. What's more, its anodized, semi-matte finish provides an exceptionally smooth grip.

Highly Customizable

The Strike Industries GRIDLOK LITE Handguard features a patented mounting system compatible with Picatinny and M-LOK accessories, allowing you to attach all the optics, lasers and lights you need to support your shooting applications. You can also remove the front sight and rail to incorporate an A2 sight setup.
