Dark Hour Defense – DARKLITE Magnesium M-LOK Handguards

For immediate release – Glendale, OR – Dark Hour is excited to introduce another brand new product in their growing list of AR-15 components. Available immediately is the new DARKLITE Magnesium M-LOK Handguards.


The new DARKLITE handguards are available in 15 inch, 13.5 inch, 11.1 inch and 9.2 inch lengths and are made from a blended aluminum & magnesium alloy which yields an approximately 30% reduction in material weight compared to commonly used 6061 aluminum. To simply say these are “light weight” handguards is an understatement. The 15 inch model (without mounting hardware) weighs just 6.7 ounces!


Each DARKLITE handguard ships with a Super Aluminum 7068 barrel nut which is significantly harder and stronger than 7075 Aluminum. The Super Aluminum 7068 barrel nut weighs just 1.13 ounces and comes with a barrel nut wrench and installation screws.

The DARKLITE series of handguards are also affordable at a starting price of just $175.

    Didn’t BCM discontinue the magnesium/aluminum KMR for serious structural integrity issues? How are these any different?
