Thomas Machine and Design threw some hints up on social media this week, revealing a line of hand guard adapters designed to work with Aero Precision Quantum handguards for the Ruger PC9.

First served up to Instagram last week, Thomas Machine and Design inquired through the social media platform whether consumers would be interested in an handguard adapter to mount Aero Precision Quantum handguards to the Ruger PC9 platform. The company added that the adapter adds roughly 1.5-inches in overall length to the handguards which are milled down the center for barrel clearance.

With an overwhelming response, the company later confirmed in a comment that it intends to make the adapter a reality for consumers.

“There seems to be a bit of interest in them so I’ll try to get started on a batch here pretty soon,” the company said on Instagram.

The Aero Precision handguards themselves come in several sizes to include 7-inch, 9-inch, 12-inch and 15-inch lengths. Thomas Machine and Design says the adapters currently coincide with the Ruger PC9, but a Ruger 10/22 version is in the works.

No word yet on when the adapters will come down the pipeline but Thomas Machine told in a message that pricing will likely range between $160 and $180.
