    MI Combat Handguards

    I'm reposting this from the main section for a couple reasons. First, Midwest Industries is the go to line that I send most cops to when they are looking to get parts for their AR15. The reason is that most cops are paying at least one mortgage, and depending on how viscous their plethora of exwives were, possibly on a few homes. Most cops seem to have also been divorced at least once, and are sending their kids to private schools or college. I've been doing this for years as MI has long offered the best bang for the buck, especially for guys where every dollar matters. The name might not be Gucci, but real cops don't care (if they did they would be FF or dets).

    The new MI rail looks good, which isn't shocking as MI has been stepping up their game for years, to the point where I think I own more MI mounts for optics than I do any other. Anyway, as long as M4C gives me a forum to post in and make comments, I'll continue to point out my views on the industry, and products.

    When I get a chance, I'll try to get one of these rails and install it on a carbine, then I can report back based on first hand use and installation.

    While we have always been conscious of weight, we have also always been very careful to never compromise strength or features.

    We know our handguards are used on rifles that very well may go into harms way. We take this responsibly very seriously and want our customers to have complete faith in their MI products.

    That being said we are proud to bring you the first in a new line of AR-15/ M16 products.

    The Midwest Industries Combat Rail Handguards.

    These new handguards use our patented 4140 heat treated torque plate and barrel nut and are made of 6061 aluminum with a type 3 hard coat anodized finish.

    This handguard has a MIL-Standard 1913 Picatinny top rail, two anti-rotation QD sling sockets, and seven sides of M-LOK slots.

    With the new installation hardware these handguards are one of the easiest to install and will not pull off or rotate even under extreme conditions.

    These handguards install without requiring the heating of any parts, timing of the barrel nut, shims or special fasteners, and without the use of any Loctite or other adhesives.

    This new handguard will be available in seven popular lengths, all with an inside diameter of 1.3 and an outside diameter of 1.5.
    Actual lengths and weights are listed below. All weights include the steel barrel nut and all hardware.

    A titanium barrel nut and hardware are available for those looking to cut weight.

    One five slot polymer M-LOK rail section is included with each handguard.

    Like everything we make this handguard is 100% made in the USA and is backed by our Lifetime Warranty.

    If I may add a modest take of my own, as a humble n00b... I haven't done a lot of business with Midwest, just a rail section and some third-party stuff, but their customer-service--Before, During *and* After Sale--has walked on water with me. Andy Yohnk, one of their tech guys, gets a big shout-out in particular.
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    I am a big fan of their Aimpoint Pro mount. I have bought three of them, and they have worked really well for me and my family.

    And the two rails as well.

    My experience has been the same with them. They truly care about their customers.
