Hoplite BLADE: Low-Profile Handguard


The HOPLITE Low-Profile rail meets Brigand Arms high standard for handguard strength and heat rejection, and and at each length offered the HOPLITE is the lightest low-profile handguard on the market. It mounts to any AR-15 receiver (.223/5.56 and 9mm PCC) using our proprietary mil-spec hard anodized aluminum barrel nut, and includes multiple M-LOK mounting slots, to accommodate any accessory. These carbon fiber parts are conditioned for stability even during barrel heat cycling, so front iron-sights and other aiming accessories remain accurate during any rate of fire.
