    I’ve always liked the looks of the M6IC, but it’s high time for LWRC to update the handguards on their piston guns to use MLOK

    They made an MLOK rail for their M6 DI gun, so it’s strange that their flagship hasn’t been updated as well

      They’ve mentioned it before why they don’t have MLOK for their piston rifles. If I remember correctly it has to do with how the hand guard is. Either they would have to make the rail removable like the 416, or they wouldn’t be able to have them on the 3 and 9 positions on that hand guard. Because that’s were the top rail connects. The reason why LWRC has gotten contracts it because end users don’t want to remove the rail to service the piston in the first place. On the old LWRC forum some guys had taken the MLOK nuts off and screwed the accessories into the rail that way.
