Midwest Industries just introduced the newest KeyMod hand guard on the market – the MI-SSK-12 KeyMod Hand Guard.
These new hand guards are similar in size to the previously reviewed MI SS-G2. They retain the slim 1.5″ OD that made the SS-G2 great and the 12″ model shown weighs only 8.5 ounces including the barrel nut!
The MI-SSK-12 features 5, yes 5, different QD sling swivel sockets. One on each side fore and aft, and one on the forward bottom. It also features 12 KeyMod attachment points on each side and the bottom (36 total).
I am hoping that the barrel nut is the same as on the SS-G2 rails because I would love to try one of these on one of the carbines that I already have the SS-G2 installed on. EDIT: I confirmed with Midwest Industries that this does use the same barrel nut. That is great news for those of you who already have an SS-G2 rail.
These will be available in 3-4 weeks. Check out Midwest Industries.
