UTG Pro continues to expand its firearm accessories, introducing the UTG Pro 15-inch Super Slim Carbine Length Drop-In Handguard as the latest in its AR accessory lineup.
Available in both KeyMod and M-LOK, the drop-in handguards are designed to fit carbine length AR-15s equipped with an A2 front sight post, delta ring assembly and round handguard cap. Achieving its 15-inch full length size via three piece design with an integrated cutout, the handguard allows the front sight to poke through unobstructed. The extra real estate gives shooters the ability to use various techniques for manipulation and retention in addition to providing more space for mounting accessories.
The company says unlike other drop-in handguards, the Super Slim series boasts seven slot traces around the circumference of the handguard, not just in the typical three, six and nine positions. The seven slots offer users increased mounting versatility. The handguards tout a scalloped Picatinny top rail that extends to and sits flush against the upper receiver flat top. This, in turn, bridges the gap over the delta ring assembly.
The M-LOK handguard includes one 8-slot Picatinny rail
