Coda Evolution Carbon Fiber Handguard
The design challenge Coda Evolution faced was to create the lightest and narrowest AR 15 handguard on the market while keeping the sturdiness and versatility of a standard aluminum handguard. Coda Evolution can achieve this and more.
Designed from the ground up, our engineering team developed a unique carbon fiber mold that allows us to create beauty in both looks and features.
Light as a feather yet strong as an ox this Carbon Fiber Handguards features a revolutionary anti-rotation system using our proprietary barrel nut and trunnion.
This means for you it is dead easy to install, no timing the gas block, and the free float system will mean better accuracy.
Weighing a mere 207 grams / 7.3oz our advanced handguard offers unparalleled heat suppression and with M-LOK® on all eight sides you won’t find yourself limited on where to put your favorite gear.
Nothing beats carbon fiber for strength, and now you can have the best and look good doing it.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package and examined the contents. The fit and finish were excellent! Installation was very straightforward, instructions were easy to read and simple to follow. This won't be my last purchase from CODA, and fellow shooters were blown away when they saw it. Heat and cold transference is mitigated compared to aluminum and MLOK attachment were rock solid after shooting several magazines.
Poor Machine Work
The example I received was very poorly machined. Very sharp, uneven cuts in the handgaurd and there was a ton of left over material hanging all over the inside of the handgaurd.
Precision fit small profile perfect for pistol platform
This Coda hand guard was purchased for building out a carbine length AR15 pistol for a 10-1/2 inch barrel. The design of the barrel nut and hand guard clamp made installation straight forward with good instructions. The hand guard profile has a small outside dimension and ideal for a positive index on the firearm without a bulky heavy feel. Ideal for an ultralight, easily manipulated pistol build.
It’s worth it
I found this hand guard while working on my first AR build and I had my heart set on a carbon fiber hand guard. First off, it’s light, it’s easy to install, and the quality of construction seems great. The only negative I have is there is a good amount of flashing still present when I received it. Now this is the first carbon fiber hand guard I have ever bought so this may be normal, I don’t know. Either way, just a little work with some sandpaper removed most of the leftovers from the m-lol slots. Overall I am very happy with the purchase, excellent product for the cost.
15" CF Handguard
This is an excellent product. If you follow the mounting instructions the installation is not difficult. I'm impressed with how solid and well centered this hand guard is.
Coda cf handguard
It's a very good handguard a bit of pita to remove the nut and clamp, but he closet wooden dowel seems to do the trick.
Coda Evolution Carbon Fiber Handguard
This is one handsome hand guard and easy to install. Only difficulty was the 8 tiny screws that affix the hand guard to the trunnion; they can be finicky and hard to start into their threads. Other than that this hand guard is light, super strong, well made and looks great!
Coda Evolution AR-15 Lightning Carbon Fiber Handguard 13.5"
Very nice handguard and would buy it again. Install directions were very clear and it went together with a bit of effort as my carbon fiber tube was an extremely tight fit to barrel trunnion, more like a press fit. Barrel nut fit to trunnion was also very tight. Tight is good in my book, though I have my doubts if I will be able to get this apart in the future if the need arises. No flex at all that I can tell at this point, it's very light feeling in the hand but it has no give at all that I can tell. The carbon fiber is smooth yet grippy, very neutral feeling in the hand unlike aluminum which is either hot or cold, will buy another! I would put this at 4.5 stars if I could, the potential issue of disassembly is the only reason. And to add Mounts Plus was a pleasure to deal with and look forward to future purchases with them.

ar 15 carbon fiber handguard review
Overall I couldn't be happier! This thing is extremely lightweight but durable enough for me to have the confidence in tossing it in a dump barrel without hesitation! It's also worth mentioning that the heat dissipation is excellent! No more burning hand from the gas block after a 60 round course of fire!! Did I say this thing is beautiful! Fit and finish are on point! Bottom line if you're in the market for a handguard. Look no further!!!
Best AR-15 Carbon Fiber Handguard
The install of the coda evolution 13.5" handguard was straight forward a barrel nut tool would have been appreciated, but I managed fit and finish are outstanding, and the weight is unbelievable so light and doesn't heat up. Have already told several friends to hope they follow through on a purchase; they won't be disappointed with a coda handguard.
