DoubleStar Vice-President Jesse Starnes said, "The new DS-420 Handguard was specifically created in response to requests from law enforcement officers for a longer tactical forearm to fit 20-inch-barreled AR rifles. Our unique oval design allows for lights, lasers, and other accessories to be mounted on the forearm and at the same time gives shooters of all hand sizes the ability to properly grip the rifle."
The DS-420 Handguard is 12 inches long and made of aircraft-grade 60-61 T6 aluminum. The four-sided Picatinny rail system is mil-spec and universal, accepting a variety of tactical accessories. The snap-on installation has a spring pressure that forces the handguard against the front handguard cap and forms a tight fit, eliminating side-to-side movement. The retail price is $190.
