Handl Defense’s new SCAR Advanced Fore-Rail is now available. This SCAR extension rail is constructed from carbon fiber and features the M-LOK attachment system.
Handl Defense claims that the 3k 2×2 carbon fiber used is as durable as 6061-T6 aluminum but with less heat transfer. Handl Defense had this to say about the durability of the rail:
We did a lot of research in making sure that the rail would be as durable as any other rail out there and what we came up with was beyond our own expectations! With the help of aerospace engineers we came up with a proprietary resin that has been capable of withstanding up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit! That’s well beyond what the weapon is capable with out failing and if If you look closely there is also built into the handguard a protective ring on the end to guard against environmental hazards and preserve the handguard’s integrity.
It is significantly longer than most SCAR extensions on the market yet it weighs only 5.6 ounces. However, much of that length is actually behind the front sight which provides additional M-LOK mounting real estate.
There are M-LOK mounting points at 2, 3, 6, 9, and 10 o’clock. 3 accessory rails are included (6 o’clock rear, 6 o’clock front M-LOK, 12 o’clock M-LOK).
