One of the key benefits of the AR-15 platform is the ability to change calibers by simply swapping a complete upper assembly or by replacing the individual components—the bolt, barrel, and upper or lower receiver. Featuring our lightest handguard to date, the 5.56 Lavi Handguard enables precision shooting while also maintaining the same rugged durability our customers have come to expect from Matrix Arms components.
Lighten the Load Without Sacrifice
With its fully free-floating design featuring KeyMod attachments, which allow for placement of accessories or rails only where needed—the Matrix Arms 5.56 Lavi Handguard allows you to lighten your rifle without compromising any of its functionality. This innovative handguard features ample ventilation to help quickly dissipate heat and minimize weight, as well as grooved channels running the entire length of the barrel, ensuring a secure, non-slip grip. Additional vents between each KeyMod attachment point helps to add strength and superior ventilation while further reducing the overall weight. The Lavi Handguard also features a Mil-Spec 1913 topside Picatinny rail, which is also vented to aid with barrel cooling and weight reduction. The 5.56 Lavi Handguard is constructed using 6061 T6 Aluminum, is Hardcoat anodized, and features a Matte black finish. Included are all the Matrix Arms proprietary nuts and mounting hardware that allows for easy installation, with rock-solid alignment and hold with your upper receiver.
