Lancer has come out with a handguard for the Sig MPX series of SBRs or pistols. They are in their classic M LOK configuration, and come in either 8 inch, 10 inch, or 14 inch lengths for the different barrel lengths that the MPX comes in. The handguards attach to the rifle via the normal installation methods. The top rail of the MPX is maintained as that is apart of the Sig gas system, while the handguards wrap around the barrel, below the top picatinny rail. The M LOK sections are at the traditional 3,6, and 9 o’clock, while there are also additional sections between the 9 and the 6 o’clock, and the 3 and 6 o’clock positions. Similar to the Springfield Armory CQB, M LOK was picked because Keymod would have been much harder to fit into the carbon fiber handguards while maintaining its shape. There is an addition section of the handguard that extends past the top rail, also with M LOK sections, while the sides of this part have the serrated and angled cuts similar to the cuts that the MPX already has in the top section. At this time I don’t have an MSRP for the MPX handguards, but I think it’ll be in the $200-300 range, similar to some of their other carbon fiber handguards.

Specifically, I’m very interested in small arms history, development, and Military/LE usage within the Middle East, and Central Asia.
