Luth-AR Announces Widebody Palm Handguard

    The Widebody Palm Handguard (Luth-AR)

    Have you ever handled or fired an original M16 or an AR-15 with the classic original tri-form handguards? They have a certain ergonomic quality to them that some might argue we have lost as we evolved through the A2 style handguards, through quad rails to the more recent lightweight M-LOK and KeyMod forends. Well, Luth-AR have announced their Widebody Palm Handguard that looks like it melds that modern modularity with some of the old school ergonomics of the original M16 handguard. The wider base of the new handguard also provides a stable shooting platform when resting the forend on surfaces.
