Faxon 13" G2 Streamline Aluminum M-LOK Handguard
Faxon is proud to offer the Gen 2 Streamline Series of handguards to compliment any Modern Sporting Rifle.
True to their namesake, the new Streamline handguards are a sleek and low-profile solution for those looking for a slimmer handguard with flexible mounting. The Gen 2 Streamline Aluminum Handguards feature M-LOK mounting slots at the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions. Further, the Streamline features an uninterrupted MIL-STD 1913 “Picatinny” rail across the entire length of the handguard. Rail slots are directly engraved with “T” marks during machining to identify accessory placement. New for our Gen 2 handguards is a removable anti-rotation tab that gives the customer the flexibility of using either a Billet or Mil-Spec upper receiver. Finally, our Gen 2 Streamline handguards come equipped with two integral QD sling swivel mounting points at the front 3 and 6 o'clock positions of the handguard.
The handguard is 100% made in the USA from extruded 6061 aluminum. The handguards are hard-coat anodized black and feature a steel barrel nut. Mounting is extremely simple with common tools and the handguard features alignment tabs to ensure it cannot rotate during vigorous movement.
Handguard seems to be well made and finished but is not light weight. The tabs mentioned in the description but not shown in the photos block complete installation of the handguard to the upper receiver. The user is then required to complete production of the handguard by removing said tabs. I can see no purpose for these tabs. Don't buy this handguard until the tabs are removed at the factory.
