If you have a 12.5” - 16” length barrel, then you need a handguard length of 12”, 13” or 13.5” lengths. In the industry, this length range is known as a rifle length. With a rifle length barrel you’ll want to choose a handguard in this size range because it will ensure that the muzzle device extends past the end of your rail.
A main role of the AR-15 handguard is to increase your shooting accuracy by minimizing barrel warp.
At STNGR, we understand the needs of shooters and have developed a line of free float handguards that specifically meet these needs. Our Made in the USA handguards, the VLCN, HWK, RPTR, and VYPR, are designed with vent channels along the length of the handguard which serve to increase airflow around the barrel. This makes sure heat moves away from the barrel and promotes efficient cooling of your barrel. It also protects your hands from being burned by the heat from your AR15.
These vent channels serve another essential purpose as well - to dramatically reduce the weight of your handguard.
With functionality being of utmost importance, our lightweight handguards are equipped with full Mlok mounting systems. Whether you have a picatinny rail section, a mlok rail cover, a grip, or a bipod you want to mount, you’ll have plenty of room to mount all of your m-lok accessories.
Each STNGR handguard purchase includes essential installation accessories and instructions which demonstrate the extremely easy install process. If you ever have any questions about the installation process, we have an experienced team ready to help.
STNGR handguards are not just about functionality, though. They’re designed to look unique and stand out from the crowd. If you’re searching for a super cool-looking handguard without missing out on the usability, look no further.
All STNGR handguards come finished with mil-spec type III hard coat anodize, but we also offer a selection of handguards in Flat Dark Earth (FDE) cerakote finishes. Both of these popular colorways will match your upper receiver and lower receiver.
The reviews don’t lie - thousands of STNGR customers regularly use and trust their STNGR handguards on their rifles. Whether you’re a shooter using your rifle for self defense, range shooting, hunting, or out in the field as a Law Enforcement Officer (LEO), STNGR handguards will have you covered. Our products are backed by the STNGR Lifetime Warranty, making sure you and your rifle are always ready for action.
