V Seven Weapon Systems .308 Magnesium Hyper-Light Handguards

For immediate release – Glendale, OR – V Seven Weapon Systems expands their line of Magnesium Hyper-Light Handguards to now include MLOK and KeyMod handguards for .308 (AR10/SR25) rifles.

With most .308 rifles weighing quite a bit more than their AR-15 counterpart, end users have been looking for ways to shed some weight wherever possible. The Hyper-Light family of hanguards are manufactured from a blended aluminum & magnesium alloy which yields an approximately 30% reduction in material weight compared to commonly used 6061 aluminum.

The 308 Hyper-Light Handguards are available in four different lengths which are 10.75”, 13.5”, 15” and 16.5” in both MLOK and KeyMod. The finish is a plasma deposition process that provides a tough ceramic-like coating with superior wear resistance compared to anodizing. Each 308 Hyper-Light Handguard comes with all required mounting hardware including a Grade 5 Titanium Barrel Nut, Barrel Nut Wrench and Screws.
