Light weight and durable, the 556 Tactical Evolution Series fore-ends offer the perfect upgrade for 3-gun shooters, LE/Military or weekend enthusiasts alike. The 1.8-inch facetted O.D .offers a comfortable shooting platform while not being to large for most shooters. Accessory rails can be added or removed easily to adapt the hand guard to your needs (units can also be mounted at 45-degree offsets).
