V Seven .308 16.5" MAGNESIUM HYPER-LIGHT M-LOK HANDGUARD AR-10 7.62 AR10 V7
(Item Code: HYPLIGHT 16.5ML308)
Incredibly light and strong MLOK .308 DPMS High Profile AR10 16.5" handguard. Manufactured from a blended aluminum & magnesium alloy. Approximately 30% reduction in material weight compared to commonly used 6061 aluminum.
Wear layer is a plasma deposition process that provides a tough ceramic-like coating with superior wear resistance compared to anodizing. E-cote black finish.
FOR 308 DPMS/SR25/HIGH PLATFORM
The distance from the barrel’s centerline to the top of the receiver rail on a pre August 2009 DPMS LR308 model and Aero M5 is HIGH PROFILE 1.313'’. On a post August 2009 DPMS LR308 model the distance is 1.253'’ also known as LOW PROFILE. Just to make things MORE confusing, S&W MP10 created their uppers with a 3/16" Tang BUT a 1.253" centerline distance. Therefore S&W has a "high profile" tang measurement but don't be fooled, it does require LOW PROFILE handguard due to the barrel centerline distance.

Hyper-light magnesium handguard barrel nut interface tolerance is tighter and handguard may need to be tapped on with a plastic/rubber hammer. Light heat from a heat gun can also ease installation.
