AR component and firearm maker Rise Armament delivers a new handguard, the RA-905, to its growing series of AR themed products.

The RA-905, touted as “more versatile than a Swiss army knife,” features a durable yet lightweight M-LOK design with Picatinny upper rail. Tipping scales at a mere nine-ounces for the 13.5-inch and 10-ounces for the 15-inch, the RA-905 sports six quick-disconnect mounting points. These mounting points span 360-degrees around the handguard offering as much customization as shooters can handle.

The slip-on handguard boasts a free-float design that is easy to install and increases accuracy, according to Rise Armament.

“We’re excited to add the RA-905 Handguard to our product lineup,” Matt Torres, President of Rise Armament, said in a press release. “It offers more mounting points and customization options than most handguards, plus, it feels and looks great too.”

The RA-905 Handguard is available in a hardcoat anodized flat black finish, foliage green or flat dark earth Cerakote. No word yet on pricing or official release date.
