No matter what kind of woman you are, if you want to definitively convey the message that you’re an absolute badass, then you’ve come to the right place. Seriously, who wouldn’t be at least a LITTLE intimidated by an AR15 handguard with a vine full of skulls?

They might not be the skulls of your enemies, but it’s the next best thing – this AR15 handgrip features a beautifully intricate skull design, and overall, the grip is much smaller than the typical AR15 that was designed for men in combat. It also features pre-drilled holes on the top and bottom, perfect for our custom picatinny rail (sold separately) and ripe for the mounting of your favorite accessories.

Finally, it’s lightweight as hell, made from 6061 t6 aluminum and more than ready to face any situation you find yourself in. Maybe you’re just hitting the range to get some practice in, or maybe you want to spend some time crouching in the blind, waiting for that perfect kill. Either way, you need to look good doing it, so rock this skull hand guard and take your firearms game to a whole new level. You’re no man, you’re a feminine rockstar, and you’re revolutionizing this sport one way or another. Why not do it in style! Go ahead and order your OffHand Gear Skull Vine AR15 Handguard today!

 Common Questions:

"Is there a warranty on the hand guard?"

          Yes - Lifetime Warranty

"Do I have to use a low profile gas block?"

          Yes, any low profile gas block will work though.

"Do I need any special tools to install this onto my rifle?"

          No, you can use any standard armorer's wrench to install the hand guard.

"Will this fit my AK47?"

          No, unfortunately it wont :(  Not to say we might have that available one day, but right now sorry to say it is not.

"I want to mount a scope on my AR, can I do that?"

          Yes, you can with the use of our tactical rail pieces.  These are designed specifically to work with smaller radius of our hand guards.  You can shop the tac rail options here.

"Will this fit on my Airsoft rifle?"

          Yes, if your Airsoft rifle has a standard mil spec threaded upper - Mil spec standard is 1.250" x 18 tpi.

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.

    Nice product

    This is a beautifully machined AR handguard. I would give it 5 stars but I believe the price of this item is excessive at $285 per unit.

    Fantastic Product , but...

    Posted by Jeffrey Smith on Apr 7th 2018

    Wonderful product fit, finish, performance, ect.
    Communication, order fill/delivery faster than expected.
    My only complaint is that when spending this amount on a rail system , needing to purchase separately a rail in order to mount a front sight. I believe for the price at least a 2" section should be included .

    Freaking amazing!

    Wow! This skull hand guard is amazing! I just built a high end custom AR15, and the hand guards are the star of the show. Every other hand guard on the market looks dull and uninspired after you see these!

    Got the skull vine for my girlfriends rifle after she saw it and fell in love with it. Bought it and installed as a suprise. The detail and craftsmanship on the handgaurds is awesome. May even pick one to put on one of my rifles and add a little uniqueness to my next build. Definitely a purchase you won't regret! Also the sweet moral patch was unexpected bonus!

    I have had my eye on the sugar skull hand guard for months now and finally pulled the trigger to order one. The detail on this bad boy is even better in person! I cannot wait to see this new build all put together! Such a great product!
