V Seven’s new Magnesium Hyper-Light KeyMod AR-15 Handguards are now available in both 13.5″ and 15″ lengths.
These handguards are manufactured from an aluminum and magnesium alloy that results in a roughly 30% weight reduction versus 6061 aluminum. The barrel nut is machined from 7068 aluminum with a hard anodized finish. As a results of the use of these materials, the 13.5″ rail weighs in at 5 ounces and the 15″ rail weighs in at 5.4 ounces. V Seven is even offering an upgrade to titanium screws to shed even more weight.
Additionally, these rails offer a slim profile (1.5″ OD and 1.3″ ID) and feature 3 QD sling swivel sockets. Their ceramic like finish is applied via a plasma deposition process and offers increased abrasion resistance versus hard anodization.
