.308 AR Handguards:
308AR AR10 DPMS LR-308 Handguards
As of writing this page theres only a handful of aftermarket handguards and quad rails available for the .308 AR rifles. Keep in mind that if the handguard requires replacing the factory barrel nut be sure to get the correct thread for your .308 AR rifle. The threads are not standard like on the typical AR15. DPMS also as of this date has three different rail heights on their upper receivers. Know what you have.

The Daniel Defense 308 AR DPMS LR308 AR10 Lite Rail was designed to work with the AR10, DPMS, and Rock River Arms LAR-8 .308 rifle length gas systems; but works equally as well mounted over top of a low profile gas block. The rail and bolt up plate are machined from 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum and all fasteners are military specification. The rail's unique "Bolt Up" mounting system mates with the upper receiver to create a singular 'monolithic' rail along the entire top portion of the rifle. The rail interface not only free-floats the rifle's barrel for improved accuracy, but also generates huge benefits when mounting optics and accessories.
