When you’re looking for a lightweight handguard for an AR build, you don’t want some hunk of junk that will twist and warp under pressure. You want reduced weight without compromising the steady hold you need. The SLR Rifleworks ION Ultra Lite M-LOK Handguard is a stable ultra-light handguard that offers security and flexibility to the operator as well as the ease of advanced M-LOK attachment technology.

Advanced Design Makes the ION Ultra Lite M-LOK SLR Handguard an Easy Choice

The SLR ION Ultra Lite is a lightweight M-LOK handguard that uses the Slip Fit locking mount design, a mounting system that is far more secure than common clamp-on mounting systems. The anti-slip design locks onto the barrel nut and is kept steady by the Anti-Rotation Insert. This SLR handguard is compatible with most low-profile gas blocks. This single piece, free-floating handguard features a shim-less installation and ships with the barrel nut and wrench needed for installation packaged with the handguard. Wing Tactical carries the ION Ultra Lite in 8, 10.7, 13.7, and 15.5-inch models. SLR’s design works with virtually every receiver on the market, so whether you prefer a forged or billet receiver, you can have the security and mounting options you want in a lightweight M-LOK handguard.

The SLR ION Ultra Lite Features Flexible Mounting Options

The SLR ION lightweight M-LOK handguard offers the field operator more options for accessories mounting than most competitors’ designers ever dreamed of. ION handguards feature tried and true Picatinny top rails to accommodate the mounting bases on most mainstream optics and sights. Each of these handguards features a seven-sided design that allows the operator to mount accessories at a 45-degree angle. QD swivel sockets make sling and support mounting easy, while ample M-LOK rails let you choose the accessories you want and even swap them out without a lot of hassle.

The ability to adapt is essential. Choose the SLR Rifleworks ION Handguard and give yourself an edge.
