The rails feature full-length Magpul M-LOK across all eight faces of the octagonal handguard. Using an optional low-profile M-LOK rail, shooters have the option of mounting on-plane BUIS. Overall size balances a slim profile (OD is 2.05 inches) while being able to fit suppressors up to 1.6 inches in diameter.
"As shooters, we designed the Streamline Carbon series of handguards like our Gunner barrels. We wanted all the functionality possible while reducing weight to the maximum extent possible," commented Bob Faxon, president of Faxon Firearms. "Usability and modularity were absolutely critical to our design process. We want shooters to pick up the Streamline Carbon option not just for its weight, but for superior utility for mounting accessories while handling arduous courses of fire."
The Streamline Carbon handguard will launch at Rainier Arms in a 15-inch configuration. 13.3-inch and 10.2-inch lengths are in production and will be available Q1/Q2 2017. The 13.3-inch handguard is the ideal companion for pinned and welded 14.5-inch barrels, giving just enough space for the hand to extend all the way to the end without being concussed by muzzle devices. Retail for the carbon-fiber rails is set at $349 for the 15-inch, $339 for the 13.3-inch and $329 for the 10.2-inch.
