Brigand Arms Edge .308 AR Carbon Fiber Handguard

Aero Precision M5 ATLAS R-ONE M-LOK Handguard 12" and 15" Black or FDE
If you want to build a lightweight 308 AR without sacrificing durability or functionality, the Aero Precision M5 ATLAS R-ONE M-LOK Handguard is one component you want to look at. It is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and features a proprietary attachment system that ensures your rail is locked down tight and will not rotate.
The ATLAS R-ONE is the newest addition to the Aero Precision Handguard lineup. Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum, the R-ONE line of handguards are designed with size and weight in mind, providing the perfect handguard for your lightweight build. Our proprietary ATLAS attachment system is a durable and dependable mounting platform, maintaining a slim profile while still providing the strength and stability customers have grown to love from Aero Precision handguards.
Available in KeyMod and M-LOK® profiles with 12″ and 15″ options.
The new Aero Taper Lock Attachment System (ATLAS) is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It features 2 mirrored tapered locking nuts that provide evenly distributed clamping pressure across a custom engineered barrel nut with use of a turnbuckle screw. A ratcheting detent further secures the design while providing positive registration during installation. By design, the even pressure of the ATLAS system avoids distortion of the handguard often seen with current applications during installation.
All hardware mounting parts are included with the purchase of an ATLAS Handguard.
