SHOT Show 17 – Lancer Systems Carbon Fiber Handguard & X-Cinch For SIG MPX

Friday, January 27th, 2017

MCX handguard

Lancer’s new MCX handguard is the only alternative to the OEM option. M-LOK compatibility allows for added accessory choices. Lancer’s MCX handguard, constructed from lightweight and reliable carbon composite, boasts suppressor compatibility, with around a 40% weight reduction as compared to the competition. Due to the use of composites, as with other Lancer handguards, such as their MPX handguard alternative, this handguard has a much lower rate of thermal conductivity. This allows for safer handling, as the handguard stays cooler.

• Available in 10.5”, 12“, and 18” lengths?• M-LOK compatible slots at 12, 3, 6, and 9 O’clock, as well as 45 deg offset faces?• Turn-key replacement for OEM handguard (no additional tools or parts needed) • Around 40% lighter than the OEM handguard?• Allows for use over suppressors with an OD less than 1.8”?• 1.5″ top rail included, or an upgrade to 3″ (all), or 4.5″ (12 & 18”) is available

Lancer Systems’ goal with their MCX handguard design is to provide recreational and professional shooters with a product that aids their performance, with apparent quality. Dean DeTurk, a sponsored competitive shooter said, “the light weight and durability of the carbon fiber, and the adaptability and cooling properties of the (design) provides me with a comfortable and quick handling rifle that enables me to compete at the highest level.”

MPX X-Cinch

A convenient, molded cinch enabling the user to double their on-weapon capacity and quicken reload time. Made from durable reinforced nylon and engineered to engage with locking ribs, this X-Cinch reflects the quality you’ve come to expect from a Lancer product.

• For use with 10/20-round and 30-round magazines?• Tool-less, thumbscrew assembly?• Locking ribs designed to mate with magazine texture to provide a secure fit

The goal of the cinch was to create a handy way to double the MPX’s capacity. This could be useful for both recreational and professional applications. Marine Infantry veteran Sean Burke commented, “this (X-Cinch) is useful because sometimes you don’t have the ability to carry additional magazines on your person, and the cinch provides security forces, or other individuals, the ability to decisively respond to threats with only the ammunition immediately available, on the weapon.”
