If you’re looking for a handguard designed to meet your every need as an AR owner, consider the Viper handguard by Strike Industries. Strike Industries is operated by avid firearms owners who ensure that each product meets their stringent quality standards before being sent off to customers. All products by Strike Industries are designed to meet the rigorous requirements of firearms owners across the nation.
The handguard of an AR rifle is designed to protect the hands of the operator from heat. The barrel of a rifle becomes extremely hot during operation and can lead to burns if appropriate precaution is not taken. When you’re looking to purchase a handguard, you will want to ensure that it’s sturdy and able to withstand the rigors of regular use. The Viper handguard will do just that with its durable design and high-quality materials.
This AR-15 handguard is made from impact-resistant, nylon fiber-reinforced polymer. An aggressive grip pattern will ensure that you have a good hold on your firearm even in the most adverse weather conditions. Top and bottom hand stops help you position your hand for the best leverage.
The M-LOK rail system of this hand guard makes it ideal for those who are always in need of more space for accessories. The M-LOK system permits the addition of extra rail sections or M-LOK accessories when needed. The Viper handguard is the ideal upgrade if you need a solid drop-in AR-15 handguard that’s able to handle whatever life throws at you with ease and grace.
The Strike Industries Viper Handguard: Big Value, Little Investment
When you choose a Strike Industries Handguard like this Viper model from Wing Tactical, you know you’re getting a quality piece. This handguard feels more substantial and will stand up to more abuse than the machine pressed Mil-Spec guards you’re used to as original equipment on so many of today’s prebuilt AR systems.
Reinforced extruded polymer guard shells and an interior heat shield allow you to choose a grip you’re comfortable with without compromising safety or accuracy. The guard pieces fit together seamlessly, giving the Viper handguard a feel comparable to many single piece forends.
A little extra consideration on the part of Strike Industries’ designers gave the Viper a few bonus touches you’re sure to love. A forward extension that keeps your digits clear of the gas block when using an over bore grip is sure to be a hit if you’ve ever ham-handed it and burned your thumb. Likewise, a finger stop on the lower front of this Strike Industries Handguard lets you enjoy an ergonomic grip for control, without concern about slippage.

You can have it your way with this one. Those of us who have an upper with a sight post that we plan on giving up some time after they put us in the ground know that it’s hard to find a quality hand guard that accommodates our antique tastes. The Viper fits seamlessly with no modification. As if we weren’t tickled enough by that, M-LOK slots at 12, 1, 6, and 10 o’clock allow you to add on any compatible rail, foregrip, or other accessory you’ve got. That’s a lot of flexibility for a little scratch.
The Strike Industries Viper Handguard comes in black and red heat shield.

Looks Great and Easy to put on
Posted by Clint Shaw on 6th Apr 2018
I had heard horror stories about putting hand guards on. This one was very easy to put on. Came together in a snap. Having someone help me as I held the ring down helped. So easy, my helper was my wife. I held down the ring, she put it on.

Great value for the price. Dropped right in. Fits nice and fits my hand perfect.

Looks amazing, getting the fit is a bit of a pain if your slip ring isn't warn. It's a malleable plastic so you kind of "shove it in" and it fits great.. the "M-LOK" compatibility leaves something to be desired, the traditional way of dropping in something, twisting the screws and it locking didn't work for me, the softer material just kept getting chewed up by the locks. I took it apart and tightened them from the inside, holding them in place with pliers to prevent further wear. This isn't an issue for me really, as this isn't the hand guard you get for a "duty" rifle that is going to get beat up.. so it's fine... would buy again, love strike industries
Aggressive and Affordable
Posted by Roxtar69 on 4th Apr 2017
Purchased this (black on black) Viper handguard to dress up a S&W M&P15 II. Nice fit with no play or slop. Unlike other handguards, this handguard allows me to use the standard front sling attachment point, with the option to use alternate attachment points with the MLOK slots, and/or SI's rail accessory. Front hand stop provides a positive grip. Well worth the money spent!
One of the best deal out there to get RED
Posted by Alvin Moses on 23rd Feb 2017
I wanted an option to get red on my forend. I had added many anodized aluminum components, so I ordered this beause I didn't want the typical red rail. The price was about as low as I would trust, but when I got the prduct and found the heat shield was red anonidized aluminum, I could not be any happier because it matched my other components perfectly. Nice snug fit, no slop or rattle. Great packaging and you open the lid and the directions are printed right there.

Nice handguard. Fits tight and looks good. You can't beat it for the money. The M-Lok mounts are a plus. Fast Shipping as usual.
Easily Installed, Quality Handguard
Posted by RaginCajun76 on 29th Sep 2016
Bought this for my Windham R16A4T Heavy Barrel rifle.
The installation went smoothly, although I did find that a handguard removal tool made the job much easier. Once the two halves were lined up, it fit like a glove.
The installed Viper Handguard fits just like it shows in the item photo. I bought the black with black heat shield and it looks great. It's rock-solid with no movement at all. Nice way to quickly mount a bipod, and the forward hand-stop is a nice addition.
Hard to beat this kind of quality for the price.
very nice hand gaurd

Was looking to add some color to my AR and this was right on point!
Easy install, looks great
Posted by CJ on 22nd Jun 2016
This is the first handguard I've purchased for my AR15 and I will say that it was really easy to install, looks awesome, and works great. For the price, I'm super impressed.
Fits the Ruger AR 556 perfectly
Posted by d_cruiser on 11th May 2016
For all you guys looking for a very cool option for your Ruger rifle, this is it. The Strike Industries Viper handguard fits the AR 556 perfectly. It looks well made and feels solid as a rock. Thanks Wing Tactical for the fast shipping.

I bought it because I thought it looked better than the magpul. Works great on its own and MOE rails fit perfectly. Feels more ergonomically correct to me and I love the stops on the front and rear. Fits good on my Ruger AR 556.
Posted by Steve M. on 19th Jan 2016
Perfect fit, looks great. I really like the forward hand stops for a good grip. I don't think I will need to put on a add-on grip.

Nice feel, tight fit and excellent look... Light weight too!
