Wedge Lock 7075 hand guards, compatible with any Mil Spec upper, have started shipping!
A collaboration with Hodge Defense Systems, the mind set from the start was to create the finest combative modular system that was strong, lightweight, and with a positive tactile feel. No expense was spared in the material selection understanding the rigors this hand guard would potentially be faced with. For example, most manufacturers exploit the use of 6061 aluminum for ease and cost of manufacturing, though 7075 has strength properties that exceed 6000 series aluminums at or near 40%. The barrel nut is made from Titanium to help with strength/weight, and the thermal properties one would normally see with steel or aluminum during high volume of fire. A little thicker wall thickness was also chosen for a solid tactile feel, more surface area, added rigidity, as well as a more positive lock-up for modular accessories. The Wedge Hand Guard slip fit attachment system utilizes a simple, yet robust method via a unique patented Wedge Lock system. Mega designed the front of this hand guard to allow a gloved shooter to access their suppressor attachment point via a small angle, so not to fight for space while gloved. A steel anti-rotation pin is incorporated in the 12 o'clock upper section which mates with a predrilled hole as found on other Mega Arms billet and forged uppers. The Hand Guard can also be mounted without the anti-rotation pin if your upper does not have this feature. Please note, that due to the slim design of the Wedge Lock, sound suppressors will not fit under the Hand Guard like they do with Mega MKM and MML uppers.
