What has a continuous Picatinny Rail, seven sides for M-LOK attachments, five QD sling swivel receptacles and weighs as little as 6.7 ounces? The new Gen 3 M-LOK Handguards from Midwest Industries ($139 to $189). Ranging in length from 7.25 inches to 15 inches, these handguards will fit pistol length to rifle length gas systems without issue. Machined from 6061 aerospace-grade aluminum and hard anodized, they are both incredibly strong and highly resistant to scratches.  The surface is fully de-horned and non abrasive with a comfortable feel. Normally this would concern us when running wet or bloody, but dimples on the seven angle points create a positive grip surface without a rough texture. Midwest Industries stands behind their product with a 100% lifetime warranty, ensuring you only need to buy once, no matter how hard you run your gear.
