STNGR HWK – THE BEST MOTHER FUNCTIONING HANDGUARD ON THE PLANET.
Based on the number of 5-star reviews alone, you could say no other handguard on the market comes close. Reviews don’t tell the whole story though. It ain’t just about looking pretty — STNGR’s s**t works when you need it the most. That’s why STNGR handguards are trusted by everyone from SWAT teams to competitive shooters. To be fair, your gun will still look pretty.

LOCKING ANTI-SLIDE PLATE
The HWK solves a problem that plagues most rails on the market – handguard sliding.
With our proprietary anti-slide plate that interfaces with a groove in the barrel nut, the HWK is locked to the upper – ensuring that it won’t go anywhere.
Forward sliding is a problem that’s solved with the anti-slide plate, but what about lateral rotation?
The HWK has built in anti-rotation tabs to prevent any kind of rotation.
By combining the anti-slide plate and anti-rotation tabs, the result is a rock solid fit – no matter how hard you run it.
LIGHTWEIGHT, INCREASED VENTILATION
Aggressive machining cuts throughout the rail serve 3 critical functions:
1) Significantly slash excess weight
2) Increase ventilation to cool both your handguard and barrel
3) Steep angles prevent fingers from sliding into grooves
