One of the most popular upgrades an individual tends to make to his AR-15 is some type of handguard with rails. Having rail sections available so that mission specific accessories can be mounted is an important and maybe even necessary feature.
When handguard rail systems originated, they were fairly bulky items with a large diameter (usually a good bit larger than standard, two-piece, plastic handguards). In the last couple of years, many manufacturers have begun to offer handguard rail systems in their product line that have a much more slim profile, with new design benefits like customized rail mounting locations, and a more comfortable exterior and profile for the shooter. Rail sections can be positioned only where you need them, thus leaving the rest of the handguard in a more smooth, comfortable state for your support hand position (as opposed to the entire handguard being covered in rails and feeling like a cheese grater).
In this blog post, we will discuss a few of the handguards that we offer at www.del-ton.com that fall into this category. Handguards like these have been standard, installed parts on some of our rifles...like our earlier DTI TRX model and our current "flagship" model, the DTI Evolution. We also offer these handguards as parts for those who would like to install them on their AR-15. The models we will feature in this post are also all free floating, offering the opportunity for increased accuracy.
