Weighing 30 to 40 percent less than aluminum, the exclusive aluminum and magnesium alloy used in the construction of this free floating handguard has the same strength properties as aircraft aluminum. It features a special finish that is applied via a plasma deposition process which creates a stabilized ceramic-like surface coating with superior wear resistance when compared to anodize or even hard chrome. The stabilized nature of the coating means it has a higher corrosion resistance as well, due to the lack of pores in the surface.
The KeyMod system provides a large range of modularity to accept any accessories you may wish to add, and offers four different offset positions between the traditional 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock positions. In the most basic of applications the KeyMod system allows for universal modularity between various manufacturers of accessories, and accessory rails. A big win for the trigger puller. As the industry advances the modular accessories will mount directly to the KeyMod instead of picatinny, allowing for a lighter, cleaner, and less bulky weapon system.
