The Firearm Blog got one of the first looks at the Magpul Handstop Kit and new XTM panels. This kit consists of the handstop component, an enhanced XTM panel (which now features a textured finish), an optional finger nub component, and a short XTM panel with the same texturing. As you can see the kit is extremely simple and works with railed forearms. Users can add or subtract panels as required.

The enhanced XTM panel seen is also indicative of the overall change to the XTM panels Magpul offers.

Price is listed as 19.95, with a release date this Spring.

    It would just be nice if MagPul make it available...still can't buy it anywhere!

    I purchased the three rail set of the Dark Earth rails for the simple reason that it takes away the uncomfortable grip that comes with holding onto the Piccatinni exposed rails. Without the gaurds the Piccatinni rails just seem to bite into your hands so unless you are wearing gloves, the new Magpul rail guards really improve your grip on your weapon.
