Yes, another handguard. And yes, another carbon fiber handguard. Faxon had one for SHOT 2017. Brigand Arms had one in 2016. Many companies have produced one, and a few also have integrated Picatinny rails like the one in the below press release. A difference is that this handguard from Tacstar looks to come in at a lower price point than many others with the same features.
Tacstar®, a leader in tactical accessories, and a Lyman brand, is proud to introduce new, highly functional carbon fiber AR-15 handguards with an integrated Picatinny rail. Extremely rugged, carbon fiber offers an unbeatable strength to weight ratio, offering durability and toughness to go along with their light weight and good looks. Unlike handguards made from aluminum or other materials, Tacstar’s carbon fiber handguards stay cool to the touch, even with extensive firing.
Whether you are a competitor, professional or just enjoy a day at the range, this Tacstar carbon fiber handguard will make a difference in your shooting experience. First, you’ll notice how lightweight it is at just four ounces.” Trevor Mullen, VP of Global Marketing and Business Development for Lyman Products said. “Second, after repeated shooting, the handguard stays cool to the touch. And, the integrated Picatinny rail is one less accessory you have to fool with when accessorizing your rifle. The Tacstar carbon fiber handguard is easy to attach and you’ll appreciate its sleek appearance as much as all the other benefits.
