While we’re on the subject of Midwest Industries (MI) M-LOK tactical handguards/rail systems/forend rail tubes, we should definitely mention the MI SP-Series Free Float Handguard M-LOK Compatible tactical AR (AR-15) rail system, which, just like the MI G3 M-Series Free Float Tactical Handguard, sports MI’s patent-pending anti-slide/anti-twist torque plate and seven-sided M-LOK quad rail system. The difference, of course, is in the diameter, as the MI SP-Series Free-Float Tactical Handguard’s diameter is 1.75″ (1.75 inches) inside, and 2.0″ (2.0 inches) outside, for when you want to run your gun integrally/recessed-suppressed.
Integrally/recessed-suppressed tactical AR carbine/SBR’s (Short Barreled Rifles) are becoming more and more popular, so it’s nice to have a reasonably-priced high-quality quad-rail option (from a good company) out there. If you plan to run a can (silencer/sound suppressor), and rock and M-LOK, the MI SP-Series M-LOK Tactical Handguard will probably do the trick for you, and it won’t break the bank. DefenseReview (DR) digs this rail.
Check out the video below to see Midwest Industries marketing manager Pete Bratz go through the rail’s features at SHOT Show 2016.
