|We're proud to announce our new STREAMLINE CARBON Series of Handguards for the AR-15.|
Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of the STREAMLINE CARBON series of handguards for the AR-15. The STREAMLINE CARBON series of carbon fiber handguards melds extreme lightweight and functionality into a single rugged, easy-to-install M-LOK handguard. Mounted to a weapon, the shooter will see a dramatic increase in maneuverability and swing ability of their rifle compared to legacy metal options.
The STEAMLINE CARBON fuses Faxon's patent-pending mounting architecture and quality machining with Lancer Systems carbon-fiber know-how. The rails mount to the AR-15 using the common mil-spec AR-15 barrel nut, ensuring anyone with standard tools can mount the rail quickly and easily. When mounted correctly, the rail is locked in to position across all three axis, ensuring rigged and rugged performance under the most demanding circumstances. The 15" rail clocks in at less than 8 ounces in its standard configuration including all mounting hardware. An optional titanium barrel nut reduces weight further by ~.8 ounces.
The rails feature full-length Magpul M-LOK across all 8 faces of the octagonal handguard. Using an optional low-profile M-LOK rail, shooters have the option of mounting on-plane BUIS. Overall size balances a slim profile (OD is 2.05") while being able to fit suppressors up to 1.6" diameter.
STREAMLINE CARBON Features:
*Requires optional low-profile M-LOK rail adapters.
15" STREAMLINE CARBON, Extended
13" STREAMLINE CARBON, Standard
10" STREAMLINE CARBON, SBR/Pistol

One of the most common questions our Customer Service team receives is, "Will (X) bolt / carrier group work with your barrel?" Most of the time, the answer is "Yes!" as AR-15 parts work off of the same military specification. Unfortunately, this same specification is not available across all platforms and calibers. For example, LR-308 / [...]

Unfortunately, the answer is difficult to formally specify as its subject to long list of variables.Since there is no detailed military specification on [...]
