Some guys have to have the latest thing as soon as it’s available. They put thousands into parts and accessories just to toss them on a shelf to collect dust while they pursue the next great thing. Other guys have three basic accessories that they’ve had since roughly the beginning of time, and they swear, that’s all they’ll ever need.
Those of us who have some old favorites and would love to have new toys but have to live on a budget use a little more balanced approach. When we look for a new handguard, it’d be nice to find something that won’t require additional adapters to mount our standby pieces but will also accommodate new MLOK Rail mounted accessories. Good news, Wing Tactical has what you need. The SLR ION Hybrid M-LOK Handguard gives you all the options you need to use your favorites, old and new.
We’re used to seeing next-gen handguards that feature Picatinny top rails. The SLR ION Hybrid M-LOK Handguard has those for your traditionally mounted optics and sights, but it also includes short sections of Picatinny rail on the 3 and 9 o’clock facets of the 7-sided handguard. That means you can equip your lucky tac light without a jumble of unnecessary adapter parts, and still have access to plenty of M-LOK rail space for your new favorites and those coveted items you don’t even own yet. Don’t forget the quick disconnect sockets for slings and supports. Whether you’re a wraparound carrier, or you like a short bipod for prone shooting, the ICON Hybrid MLOK Rail Handguard has a QD socket where you need it.
