UTG PRO 15 Slim Keymod & M-LOKR Carbine Length Drop-in Handguards

With the abundance of high value AR15 carbines in the market, it is easier than ever to get your hands on one and still have funds leftover to customize. One aspect of the AR15 is the beauty its highly modular design. After the AR15 is brought back to the home front, standard items, like the pistol grip, butt stock, and plastic handguards tend to find their way into a drawer or closet never to see the light of day again. The only problem arises with the A2 front sight post. For the Average Joe, removing a standard A2 FSP is a difficult and time consuming ordeal. Without the right tools and equipment it does not take a lot to permanently damage or mar your carbine. So what do you do if you want one of those full length Super Slim handguards, but are stuck with an A2 front sight? One option is to look into UTG PRO’s latest 15″ Super Slim Carbine-Length Drop-In Handguard.

UTG PRO put forth a lot of effort in creating these hanguards and making available, both the M-LOK® and Keymod Modular Systems as options. As with most drop-in handguards, they are designed to fit carbine-length AR15s equipped with an A2 front sight post, delta ring assembly, and round handguard cap. It achieves its 15″ full-length size via a three piece design with an integrated cutout allowing the front sight to protrude through. The increased real estate allows for various techniques for both manipulation and retention, as well as, providing additional customizable points for attaching accessories.

Unlike other drop-in handguards, the UTG PRO Super Slim handguards provide increased mounting versatility with 7 slot tracks around the circumference of the handguard and not just at the typically found 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. The handguards feature a scalloped Picatinny top rail that extends to and sits flush against the upper receiver flat top, bridging the gap over the delta ring assembly. For those who run a Ruger® AR-556® with its proprietary threaded delta ring/barrel nut assembly, you will be happy to know that the Super Slim handguards are compatible and drop-in without an issue. Each handguard comes with its own additional mounting accessories. The M-LOK™ Handguard (MTU015SSM) includes one 8-slot Picatinny rail section and a QD sling swivel adaptor, while the Keymod handguard (MTU015SSK) comes with a 4 and an 8-slot Picatinny rail section. Both are precision machined from 6061-T6 aluminum with a matte black anodize finish and are proudly designed and made in the USA.

MTU015SSM, 15″ M-LOK®: $129.97
MTU015SSK, 15″ Keymod: $129.97
