Midwest Industries’ (MI) new Ultra Light Weight Handguards are now available. Several of MI’s handguards are already relatively light weight but they have taken additional weight reduction measures with these.
The MI-ULW feature M-LOK compatible slots at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions. The top rail has short sections of standard picatinny rail at the receiver (3 slot) and muzzle end (5 slot) with M-LOK slots in between to reduce weight. The sides of the top rail has been drilled with a series of small holes along the entire length to further reduce weight.
These handguard have a 1.5″ outside diameter and 1.3″ inside diameter. They are machined from 6061 aluminum, deburred and dehorned, and finished with hard anodizing. The MI-ULW is available in several lengths, all of which come with everything necessary to mount the handguards including tools.
Available lengths and weights:
- 10.5” – 6.8 oz
- 12.625” – 7.9 oz
- 14” – 8.4 oz
- 15” – 8.9 oz
