A free float handguard is attached to the receiver only and does not contact any point on the barrel. This reduces the chance of accuracy-reducing pressure on the barrel. The JP Modular Handguard is designed to improve the accuracy and the handling characteristics of the rifle. The two included JP Quick-Detach Sling Studs allow complete flexibility in bipod positioning. The two-piece design allows for easy installation and the ventilated, fluted design is 20% lighter than standard tubes which offers excellent heat dissipation. Posi-grip center assures non-slip grip. This handguard has a 1.75" ID and 2.00" OD.
