ATLAS R-ONE is the newest addition to the Aero Precision Handguard
lineup. Machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum, the R-ONE line of handguards are
designed with size and weight in mind, providing the perfect handguard
for your lightweight build. Our proprietary ATLAS attachment system is a
durable and dependable mounting platform, maintaining a slim profile
while still providing the strength and stability customers have grown to
love from Aero Precision handguards.
The new Aero Taper Lock Attachment System (ATLAS) is both functional
and aesthetically pleasing. It features 2 mirrored tapered locking nuts
that provide evenly distributed clamping pressure across a custom
engineered barrel nut with use of a turnbuckle screw. A ratcheting
detent further secures the design while providing positive registration
during installation. By design, the even pressure of the ATLAS system
avoids distortion of the handguard often seen with current applications
All hardware mounting parts are included with the purchase of an ATLAS Handguard.
ATLAS Handguards are designed to match seamlessly with our M4E1
Threaded Upper Receivers. Additionally, they are compatible with any
Mil-Spec AR-15 upper receivers as well. However, they may not be
compatible with billet upper receivers due to indexing tabs.
