While we’re on the subject of new Strike Industries (SI) tactical handguards/rail systems, we should probably also mention the SI VIPER Handguard carbine-length tactical handguard, which is designed to upgrade a M4/M4A1-style tactical AR (AR-15) carbine/SBR with A2 sight/gas block. The SI Viper Handguard, made of “impact-resistant nylon fiber-reinforced injection-molded polymer” (wow, that’s a mouthful!), is an interesting-looking handguard, with M-LOK rail slots on the top section and a slimline bottom section.
