The range is the perfect place for a little sugar and sass, and you can finally show that off with our Sugar Skull AR15 handguard, which is downright sexy. Sure, the range officers might have a dismissive ‘aww, that’s cute’ attitude, but when you start nailing targets down range and showing everyone that you’re not a delicate little flower, you’re going to gain a whole new level of respect. This thing is built strong, from 6061 t6 aluminum that makes it both lightweight and tough as nails. The benefits don’t stop there; it’s got a smaller diameter and beveled edges, making it easy to grip in any situation. Let’s face it, men have bigger hands than we do, and while that’s great for them, we want in on the action too, and this handgrip is going to get you there.
If you want to bring that little dash of sugar along with your ultra-feminine mystique, this handguard is for you. Let them know that you’re tough; let them know that you can handle it, and let them know that you’re a badass babe who can handle her Armalite just as well as any man. Maybe even better!

Amazing work, great product and communication, met every expectation, can't wait to get it all together. Mikayla Paulino on May 7th 2018
quality product, cerakote was flawless and the fit was perfect. The customer service was amazing. acme speed company on Nov 20th 2017
The photos on the website are pretty nice, but once I received my hand guard, those photos did not do any it justice. The detail is amazing, must better than I expected. I got the 15", it has 3 sugar skulls on each side of the guard. It is nice and light weight. I was worried it might feel a bit uncomfortable with all of the cut out details, but it is smooth and comfortable to the grip. The shipping was fast. I did not need to interact with anyone from the company as I had no issues; but from their product and service I bet they are pleasant! And best part of all, it's made in the good old USA. I wound definitely recommend if you want to put a one of a kind touch on your AR. Stacy on Mar 15th 2017
I bought the black, 12 inch sugar skull hand guard and it was more perfect than I expected. I can't wait to get my AR completed because this hand guard is going to be the perfect touch. This company was very willing to work with me on ordering considering the one I wanted was out of stock when I went to order. They are quick to respond. Shipping was fast and the packaging for shipping was outstanding. I was very impressed and I recommend this company and this product to anyone! Madison Jennings on Feb 28th 2017

Handguard Mounting Instructions and Tips:
Before mounting handguard insure your receiver is mil-spec. If not, confirm fit of parts before beginning mounting instructions. Some non mil-spec receivers require barrel nut to be backed away from the upper receiver to allow clearance of over sized front lugs.
Step: 1) Once you have the old free float-tube and/or barrel nut removed, clean any grease or oil from the threads of the upper receiver extension.
Step: 2) This step is optional to allow easier installment of handguard. LocTite® is not required for installation of handguard. Apply a drop or two of blue LocTite® to the receiver threads and screw the large aluminum barrel-nut on until it stops, then back it off until the gas tube holes line up.
Step: 3) Insert the barrel and slide the steel castle bolt over the barrel and thread it into the aluminum barrel-nut; now, use a .184″ or 3/16″ bit or punch to to keep the gas tube holes aligned .
Step 4) With the punch inserted in the gas tube holes turn the steel castle bolt by hand until you get a good, solid hand-tight alignment with the barrel-nut and receiver. Once you have the two aligned, let it set for a 2-24 hours. After the blue LocTite® has cured between the barrel-nut and receiver, the steel insert and barrel can be removed.
Step 5) For final assembly insert the barrel, thread the steel castle bolt into the barrel-nut and once it is finger tight. Optional: Then back it off three or four turns and place a drop of blue LocTite® on the threads of the steel insert, right where it becomes visible out of the barrel-nut.
Step 6) Now torque the steel insert down to desired torque (according to your rifle manufacturer’s specifications). This can all be accomplished with or without the use of punch in the gas tube but the barrel-nut can move while you are torquing the steel castle nut, and then you will have to loosen it up and re-time it. We recommend using the punch to insure proper timing.
Step 7) Once you have installed the gas tube, slide the handguard onto the barrel nut and aligned the 6 radial holes with the corresponding holes in the barrel-nut. Now the 6 countersunk screws can be installed. Tighten until snug. DO NOT over tighten. Stripped screws are not covered by the warranty.
