One of the most critical components of any AR-15 custom build is the handguard. In recent years freefloat handguards have increased in popularity. The freefloat handguard covers the barrel and is attached to the upper receiver via a barrel nut. The handguard serves many functions in an AR-15 build kit such as protecting the shooter's hand from being burned by the barrel, offering the shooter something to grip to help steady the weapon, can function as the attachment point for sights/optic, can have additional accessories attached, and adds to the aesthetic appeal of the build.
It is recommended that the handguard completely cover the gas system of the AR-15 so please consider your gas system length when shopping for a handguard. If you wish to buy a pre-designed upper build kit equipped with a handguard please visit our AR-15 & LR-308 Upper Build Kits page.
