Midlength M-LOK drop in handguard

The MI-18M does require a triangle hand guard cap and a delta ring assembly to be installed on the upper.
It has 5 built in anti-rotation QD sling swivel sockets (one bottom front, and two on each side front and rear).
Comes with one 5 slot M-Lok rail piece.
Weight is 6.7oz.

Do you guys have any plans to do a free float carbine length version of these? And do you guys have any plans to bring back your OD green colors or FG? Or can colors be custom ordered?

I have a set of your Gen2 FF quad rails in OD that I would love to swap out for a FF MLOK in OD.

If only it had a cut-out extension like the Centurion C4 or even ala Magpul SL.

Here are some answer to a couple of the questions above . Green will not be back, EVER. :) To answer the other comment about the cut out version . The hand guard is to narrow to do a cut out version and still make this a drop in.

Appreciate the candor, Troy.

Really hate to hear this... Not having to coat made it easy to pick MI if the other factors were close.

Remove this edge MI had and I'm finding myself picking competitors.

Really surprised coating is such a big deal... Even low cost alternatives like ALG offer multiple colors.

What about making a 7in FF carbine version?

We may get into the drop in free float units but it will be out a bit . If green is a deal breaker sorry just being honest. There will be a few companies dropping green in the future. The numbers you sell vs the customers wanting a exact match to all the different shades are not worth the trouble. Its much easier having the customer send parts out for cera coating.

Thanks Troy, and appreciate your openness and participation here.

I'm less concerned about exact matches, just always felt being able to skip a separate coating cost made MI rails an incredible deal.

Green isn't a deal breaker, I just want a free float carbine length so I don't have to do a low pro gas block and all that on my Stag.

I plan to put one of your 15" versions on my Colt.

I just ordered a Mid-Length (MI-18M) yesterday 5/8/15. If I'm reading the above thread correct my current 14.5" Mid-Length barrel with round handguard cap will not work with the MI-18M? If so I will need to change my order which doesn't make me happy. Unless I missed it a bullet in the main product description notes saying as such would have avoided this.

All our mid length and rifle drop ins are made for the correct triangular hand guard cap. Rounds will not work.
thanks
