Strike industries MITCH handguard

Strike Industries’ most ambitious project thus is the MITCH series handguard for the AR15. Sticking with the patented polymer formulation and to an already winning formula S.I. has made some tweaks and improved upon outdated AR-15 handguard designs.
Not everyone wants a fancy rail or handguard so we went on a mission to make a handguard that is economical and can be used with a standard AR platform rifle. The MITCH design is true plug-and-play, eliminating the need to replace a barrel nut, front sight post, or buy a low profile gas block.
S.I. changed the round handguard into a more comfortable and slimmer design, tweaked and lightened the internal heat shield, and made it modular. Not everyone needs rails (or don't need them all the time) so we made them optional; you can have rails if you wish by simply bolting them on. Perhaps the coolest feature is the integrated lower handstop which can be moved to any position in the bottom slot and into any direction. We also have more integrated options on our flagship handguard coming soon. The MITCH is an economical upgrade that not only enhances the look of your rifle but also gives you some ergonomic improvement. The modular design gives the user the option of using what he or she chooses.

  1. Looks unique, like that hand/finger stop grip idea. Tired of seeing ARs with MOE. Look forward to get one to try.


Simple Rule. Please leave comments but don't be a moron.
