New JP Rifles M-LOK Series: Slim Profile Hand Guards

    After years of waiting, the JP Rifles M-LOK Series Slim Profile Hand Guards are finally here! The models are available in 9.25″, 12.5″ and 15.5″ overall length options. The handguards are machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and offer full M-LOK accessory compatibility in a slim tube design.

    With the release of the M-LOK mounting system, Magpul set the industry standard. While we still tout the advantages of our direct-mount system, there’s no denying the dominance of M-LOK. And that goes double for military and law enforcement.

    The M-LOK Series answers two calls we’ve heard in recent years:

    1. First, for a sturdy, JP-quality M-LOK option for our rifles, particularly from law enforcement
    2. Second, for narrower tube alternative for shooters of a smaller stature or those that just prefer a slimmer grip

    On both counts, the M-LOK Series delivers while living up to our high standards. After its test run at the 2019 SHOT Show, we took another year to get the engineering right, matching a lighter design with fully duty-ready durability.

    Available in three lengths, the M-LOK Series features a slimmer 1.6” tube with an integral, full-length top rail. Keeping with our modular design philosophy, rails and accessories can mount to any of the remaining seven positions around the tube. Our heavy-duty rock-blast finish then offers a coarse, no-slip grip along the full length.

    The mounting method utilizes a slimmed-down version of our proven dual-nut system for the same extreme strength and retention as our MK III system. Added to this is a sturdy bayonet-style cross-bolt attachment that allows for easy mounting over most low-profile gas blocks while still giving a positive threaded attachment for the tube. Compatible with any AR-15 upper receiver, the M-LOK Series hand guards are a great JP offering for any rifle build you have in the works.
