Handguards that fall in the 7”, 7.5”, and 8” range are considered Carbine length handguards. If you have a 10.5” barrel these free float handguards will be a great fit because they’ll allow clearance of the muzzle brake beyond the end of the handguard.
One of the most important roles of an AR-15 handguard is to increase accuracy by reducing the occurrence of barrel warp.
STNGR handguards have numerous vent channels across the surface of the rail which promote airflow around the barrel. This is important because it directs heat away from your barrel, thereby keeping your barrel cool and protecting your hands from burns from your AR15.
Since STNGR Handguards are designed with the shooter in mind, our handguards are engineered to be as lightweight and functional as possible. All of our handguards - the RPTR, VYPR, and HWK - have Mlok mounting systems which provide you with lots of room to mount all of your accessories.
