Leaper’s/UTG has come a LONG way since the days of airsoft parts and accessories. From their versatile handguards to their after-market stocks, the company has grown by leaps and bounds since it’s creation by a Taiwanese police officer who fell in love with the American dream in 1992.
This year at SHOT Show, they brought a few new products for 2018.
New for SHOT Show 2018
The first new item in the Leaper’s booth was the new 100% titanium barrel nut.
With no release date, nor MSRP, Leaper’s employee Bo Chen suggested that the titanium barrel nut would become an option on any of the handguards available for a slightly higher pricepoint. Chen also suggested customers would have the ability to purchase the barrel nut separately for existing Leaper’s handguards (but nothing set in stone as of yet).
With a new handguard for the H&K 416 also coming soon (again, no MSRP yet – photo below) and a beautiful new lightweight handguard coming to production soon (as seen in the featured image on this article, along with the titanium barrel nut), Leaper’s plans to take affordable AR-15 parts to a whole new level!
Also new for SHOT Show 2018 was a new pistol buffer tube, compatible with the Gear Head Works Tailhook (Brace).
The new fixed rifle-length buttstock also looks to be like a great addition to the Leaper’s lineup.
The scope rings are available in a variety of colors, in either single ring or two-piece designs:
Leaper’s/UTG also revealed their super slim 45 degree offset sights.
Note the TOOLESS option for the A2-style front sight. No more searching for that long-lost AR sight tool!
*Correction – UTG/Leaper’s offers the pistol buffer tube to work with the Gear Head Works Tailhook Brace and does not manufacturer the brace itself.
