One of the most important parts of any LR-308 is the handguard. Haundguards have gone through many changes over the years from the plastic clam shell style to the free float system. Both systems give the shooter a comfortable grip while protecting their hand from the heat that radiates from the barrel. Both systems have many different designs and features built into them but the freefloat system tends to be more modular. While some of the drop in handguards offer M-Lok slots and QD mount points, most free float systems offer those same options and usually more available slots. Most handguard options have built in options for mounting lights, lasers, pop up sights, etc. and those that don't have them built in may have M-Lok or Keymod options for mounting accessories.
It is receommended that a free float handguard completely covers the gas system so please consider you gas system length when shopping for a handguard. If you wish to buy a pre-designed upper build kit equipped with a handguard please visit our AR-15 & LR-308 upper build kits page.
