“One word to describe this thing, awesome. The rail is tough, comfortable, easy to install and amazingly light. This was my first but will not be my last.”

- Austin Hull

“Very light, robust and conducive to barrel cooling. Carbon fiber mesh dampens vibrations, so there’s much less point of impact shift… I’ve been converting most of my rifles to Brigand Arms.”

- Oleg Volk

“I’ve always been a lover of carbon fiber in all forms (except for splinters in my skin…) This handguard is unbelievable light and rigid. I haven’t been this exited abut a new gun part in a looooong time!”

- Lee Bargeron



RECOIL Magazine:

“While the handguard is amazingly light, I was equally curious on the strength. BA uses T700 carbon that is shrouded in an all-weather protective jacket. The composite is essentially a braided composite yarn in a lattice that is extremely strong. In fact, their SHOT Show display has a 40 pound dumbbell hanging from the end. In laboratory tests, the handguard withstood 100-pounds of force at the end in any direction.”

ARMS GUIDE: 2017 SHOT Show Review:

“So it’s lightweight, and that’s easy to do right? Making something light and strong is the challenge. At SHOT today they had their rails on display, including one holding a 40-pound weight. It didn’t bend, break, move, or budge.”
