Looking to upgrade your AR’s fore-end? Blackhawk introduced its new Knoxx AR Polymer Handguards, which promise to deliver superior barrel control and heat protection in a slim, ergonomic profile.

Available in both carbine- and mid-length models, Knoxx AR Handguards use integrated front hand stops with light texturing and an aluminum heat shield to give the shooter a safe, solid and comfortable grip on the rifle, which helps to promote more precise shot placement. The lightweight polymer construction and heat shield also bolster the handguard’s overall durability, so it can withstand bumps and bruises in the field or at the range.

A completely ambidextrous, QD sling mount gives the shooter more versatility, and M-Lok mounting points at the 3-, 6- and 9-o’clock positions make the sling/handguard setup more customizable.

Blackhawk Knoxx AR Polymer Handguards are made in the USA and have an MSRP of $39.95. The new Knoxx handguards will be available at retail in April.
