Ergo Grip announced the release of a two piece hand guard for the AR-style rifle. The Ultra Lite S uses the KeyMod attachment technology to allow the addition of accessories without the need for a lot of unused Picatinny rails weighing the gun down.
The hand guard is made of aluminum and weighs 4.9 ounces. According to Ergo Grip, this is less than a standard M-4/M-16 plastic hand guard. The Ergo hand guard is less than 2″ high and only 1.6″ wide. The top of the hand guard does have a full length Picatinny rail.
A black hard coat anodized finish is standard, but the hand guard can also be ordered with a Cerakote finish of dark earth or olive drab. The MSRP is $176.47 for these units.
