ODIN Works has introduced a new series of lightweight AR-15 handguards called the RUNE. These new M-LOK handguards are currently available in 12.4″ and 15.2″ length options. Here is how ODIN Works describes this new product line:
The RUNE is the latest addition to the ODIN Works modular, free-float rail systems. With its sleek and simple design, it fits comfortably into your hand allowing for quick and accurate target acquisition. Constructed out of high-grade Aluminum and weighing in at just over 5 oz, the RUNE is also one of the lightest hand guards on the market to date.
Featuring Magpul’s M-LOK technology, full customization is possible in the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. Secure and modular attachment of mount lights, bipods, and other accessories such as the included Picatinny sight rail makes the RUNE a must for any rifle build.
To be more precise, the 12.4″ handguard weighs 5.45 oz and the longer 15.2″ one weighs in at 6.55 oz. The outside dimensions of the Rune handguards are 1.65” x 1.81” and the corresponding internal dimensions are 1.47” x 1.63”. The RUNE handguards are made of 6061-T6 aluminum and are available in black color option only.
ODIN Works 12.4″ and 15.2″ RUNE handguards are listed on the company’s website at MSRPs of $119 and $129 respectively. The handguards come with the installation hardware, barrel nut, and a short three-slot Picatinny rail section.
