Aero Precision M5 16.6″ Enhanced Gen 2 M-LOK Handguard – OD Green Anodized

NOTE: This part features a colored anodized finish. These finishes are held to different aesthetic standards than parts finished in black anodizing or Cerakote. By buying this part, you understand that the color may not exactly match what is visually shown on the website and that the part may also differ in shade when compared with other parts of the same color/finish. For more information on colored anodizing, visit our Knowledge Center.

The Aero Precision APRA308496C: 16.6″ Enhanced M-LOK Handguards provide a lightweight, free-float design for your custom AR15 build. The M-LOK system allows advanced modularity past the current 1913 Picatinny rail system. This handguard eliminates bulk while retaining strength and stability. It is machined to mil-spec dimensions and engineered to perfection. Finished in a tough Black Anodized finish, it’s sure to stand up to the toughest tasks!

A barrel nut is NOT included – see Note below for additional information.

  • Built-in anti-rotation tabs
  • Scalloped rails
  • 1.72″ inside diameter (from barrel nut cut to forward end) fits most muzzle devices, and 1.5″ suppressors
  • 1.78″ inside barrel nut cut area diameter
  • Compatible with low-profile gas blocks
  • DPMS High Profile (.210) Tang
  • Lightweight: 12.8oz

 Note: Are you attaching this handguard to a standard mil-spec (threaded) upper receiver?
If yes, you must also purchase the Aero Precision M5E1 Handguard Barrel Nut Kit.  No additional barrel nut is required if you are using the Aero Precision M5E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver.

** Note:  This handguard is specific to the M5 .308/M5E1 platform. It is not compatible with the AR15/M4E1 platform.
