Alexander Arms® advanced G10 composite handguard system gives heat, cold, and chemical resistance while providing featherweight rigidity and an excellent tactical surface. Upper vents assist in rapid cooling of barrels and are spaced to reduce mirage. Low-profile, 2-inch diameter, free-floated, and includes a 7075 aluminum barrel nut. This item has corrosion-resistant, threaded inserts spaced to attach our 3-inch Picatinny rail sections per user requirements. Attaches to threaded inserts via Allen head screws. Overall length is approximately 9 inches. Weight including barrel nut is 0.66 pounds; barrel nut weight is 0.16 pounds. The handguard is compatible with any and all standard AR-15 upper receivers and is not suitable for piston-driven systems with components that run under the handguard or weapons using alternative methods of handguard attachment. You may view the introduction and installation instructions for this item here on our web site.
Alexander Arms® AR-15 billet upper receiver kit. Beefy, squared upper resists flexing with usage of long barrels. This product includes only an upper receiver, a chromed carrier with gas key installed, and a side-charging handle. This upper receiver is designed for use with the 6.5 Grendel cartridge, but is also 5.56/.223 compatible. It may be compatible with other cartridges, but this is not tested or guaranteed. The upper receiver does not feature extended feed ramps. This product is not for use with .50 Beowulf® or similarly large cartridges. Because of very limited available supplies, production lead times for this product may be uncontrollably long.
Vltor SASE Sling Mount End Plate, HK style hook. The SASE sling end plate is an ambidextrous sling plate made to suit the demands of both right- and left-handed operators. These sling plates are a direct replacement to your existing receiver end plate.
