Lancer Systems, known for their fantastic* AWM magazines and advanced composite works, has announced an update to their OEM series of handgaurds for both SIG and HK firearms. The new update transitions the carbon fiber handguard offerings to Magpul’s M-LOK system for greater compatibility with accessories. The platforms included in this update include the Sig516, Sig716, and HK416 OEM-replacement units. Offerings for Sig’s MPX and MCX have already received the update.
*In my personal opinion. Plus, they are offered in a translucent model which is wayyy tacticool.
Previously, the handguard used a proprietary system that required Lancer’s Picatinny and scant few others to interface critical accessories. With the M-LOK system in place, the shooter has far more options for mounting.
“Customers can look at this as a sign of further developments for Lancer,” comments business area manager Kas McManus.
Does this mean more M-LOK carbon fiber goodness to come?
The new handguards will debut at the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta this year. For those interested in lightening up or lengthening their handguard, check our Lancer Systems at booth #3674 or at their website here. Pricing has not been formally announced, but the changes are not likely to impact pricing with Magpul’s free licensing of the M-LOK system.
