The Aero Precision new Gen2 Enhanced M-LOK (EM) Handguards provide a lightweight free float design for your custom M5 .308 build. The M-LOK system allows advanced modularity past the current 1913 picatinny rail system. Machined to mil-spec dimensions and engineered to perfection, this handguard eliminates bulk while retaining strength and stability.

Are you attaching this handguard to a standard threaded upper receiver?
Make sure to select a barrel nut option from the drop down menu above (shims included). The Aero Precision handguards use either the DPMS/Aero or Armalite interface and do not work with a standard barrel nut. If you are using the Aero Precision M5E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver, no additional pieces are needed.

*Please note - This handguard is specific to the M5 .308/M5E1 platform. It is not compatible with the AR15/M4E1 platform.
