    Descriptions

    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 handguard 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.

    Quick Benefits

    Carbon Fiber
    • Strenght - 10 times strong than aluminum
    • Weight - 40% lighter than aluminum
    • Heat insulation - 40 times less heat transfer than aluminum

    Proprietary Barrel Nut & Trunnion

    • Our proprietary trunnion locks into place with the handguard to form the Anti-Rotation System (ARS). This system provides a positive lock-up, ensuring that the handguard will be 100% secure, amd will NEVER shift
    • Provides full 360 degree contact with trunnion and handguard
    • Proprietary Barrel Nut designed to allow mounting the gas tube WITHOUT TIMING!

    Coda Evolution AR-15 Lightning Carbon Fiber Handguard 13.5"
    4 out of 5
    Location: FL
    Date: November 11, 2019
    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!!!

    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.

    Excellent lightweight AR handguard

    This is actually an excellent AR handguard. Bought it for my WWSD carbine because I can actually find these in stock, unlike the Faxon handguard. It weighs only an ounce more, but is about 100 dollars cheaper, which sounds like a fair trade-off to me. Very sturdy, and it looks fantastic. My one criticism I had is with installation; I had some minor problems removing the handguard after I put on a piece upside down. But that was just me being an fool, so I am still giving the AR-15 Handguard five stars. Would suggest this to anyone looking for a carbon fiber handguard.

    Love my lighting handguard. Use a swiss arca plate in a Mlok slot with a tripod. Rifle gets slung over the shoulder with a tripod and drug all over a farm. Tough as nails. Beautiful!

    I love this AR handguard, worth the money and excellent quality. I was very reluctant about buying carbon rail over a metal rail, but it's solid and looks great! MSP has outstanding customer service and fast shipping! I will be buying more of my ar15 accessories from them.
