The Picatinny rail system essentially provides universal mounting options for any accessory you’re looking to add including iron sights, tactical lights, laser aiming modules, night vision devices, foregrips, bipods, slings, and bayonets.
Increase your accuracy.
Phantom free-floating handguards increase accuracy because they are mounted directly to the upper receiver and do not touch the barrel. Allowing the barrel to float produces better harmonics resulting in improved accuracy of .5 – .75 MOA (minute of angle) over drop-in handguards.
If you are using grips or bipods on the handguard, this accuracy difference becomes even greater. When you attach the barrel directly to a bipod, it creates a force that can slightly warp the barrel. This small amount of warping can cause accuracy issues down the range. But with a free-float handguard, you can put all kinds of force on the handguard, and it will not affect the barrel whatsoever. With a simple installation of a Phantom handguard, you could improve your shooting accuracy.
Best handguard and upper solutions.
The result is a less expensive, lighter handguard that is simpler to machine.
