DPMS Glacier Guards AR-15 CAR Round Handguards
An AP4 style handguard that utilizes 15 internal fins, rather than the standard aluminum double-shield, for heat dispersion. These unique fins, while dispersing the heat generated by rifle fire, also provide unsurpassed strength and rigidity for the handguard. Externally, the AP4 GlacierGuards™ feature 15 ribs that mirror the internal fins, and provide the shooter an enhanced grip. The AP4 GlacierGuards™ accommodate barrels with diameters less than one inch, namely the military AP4 contoured barrel and the industry standard heavy barrel. Made of a high tech, temperature resistant polymer that withstands temperatures greater than 500 degrees which allows the handguards to resist over-heating after fully-automatic fire for over 200 rounds. The fiber-reinforced polymer provides additional strength and rigidity and keeps the handguards' weight at one half pound per pair, compared to the standard .4 pounds per pair.
