  • Information
Developed for the US Navy's E.O.D. units, the Vltor CASV-ELX Free Float Modular Handguard is a 2-Piece Extended design that's been engineered for seamless integration with an AR-15 Flat-Top Upper equipped with a Carbine Length Gas System and Fixed A2 Front Sight Base. The CASV mounting system incorporates a long, uninterrupted top rail platform that runs over the Delta Ring assembly and "Piggy Backs" onto the Flat-Top Rail of an A3 or M4 style upper. As a Free Floating unit, the CASV Handguard increases the accuracy potential of the host rifle by isolating the barrel from outside influences that could affect its harmonic consistency upon firing. The handguard's removable lower section maintains full compatibility with under-barrel mounted flare or grenade launchers, while optional Modular Picatinny Rail Sections enable the shooter to add other tactical accessories such as lights, lasers, or vertical grips only where desired, keeping the remainder of the handguard smooth and uncluttered for greater off-hand comfort and lighter overall weight.

With its All-Aluminum Construction and Hard Coat Anodized Finish, the CASV Chassis is tough, durable, rigid and lightweight. Installation is as simple as removing and replacing the factory original 2-piece handguard, with no special tools or alterations to the host rifle required except for the potential removal of any front sight tower sling loop (if present). The CASV-ELX is Extended forward to envelope the Fixed Front Sight Base on the bottom and both sides, adding additional space for an extended off-hand grip or accessory placement. It comes with One 2" Modular Rail Section, Two Integral QD Sling Swivel Sockets, mounting hardware and installation instructions.
