IWA – Troy Industries Carbon Fiber Handguards for HK416 & 417

We caught up with the Troy Industries team and they showed us their carbon fiber handguards for the HK416 and 417 rifles. The mounted handguard has been Cerakoted.

The handguards are M-Lok compatible and accept Troy’s Squid Grips. Offered in 9″ and 13″ for the 416 and 13″ and 15″ for the 417, they install with the same mounting hardware as the factory original.

    Reminiscient of Geissele.

  2. Be very interested to see weights. Troy site seems to be entirely lacking in that area. I don’t know if anyone else feels the same but if I’m in the market for a rail then anything that lacks a weight (with mounting hardware) in the product description gets cut from the list first thing. Just saying that’s it’s lightweight without telling me number to compare to the competition.. doesn’t really help to be honest. It’s not just about the number obviously and I’ll carry an extra ounce or whatever for a better shape or design feature, but personally I still want to know.

    Also Troy if you see this, I get that it should be obvious but you might want to specify that you’ve produced M-LOK squid grips, because the old type are far more common and generally known; but obviously would not fit this rail.

      I feel the same way, I went on a search for it and couldn’t even find any of Troy’s weights on other websites. In this day in age, you need to have all the data available online or you will lose a lot of customers.

    Just don’t drop your rifle or run into an object… CFRP is known to absorb small quantities of energy during impact events, I am wondering what kind of testing went into that.
