Lancer Lightweight Carbon-Fiber Handguard

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

The Lightweight Carbon-Fiber Handguard from Lancer is pretty cool. It’s a free float handguard for 5.56mm AR type rifles and 7.62mm AR type rifles.

The carbon fiber tube is attached to the receiver extension with fasteners so no bonding is required. Additionally, the handguard will remain free floated even if used on a rifle with a fixed sight post due to clearance between the end of the handguard and the fixed front sight post.

It integrates cooling slots that pull double duty as attachment points for Picatinny rail segments. You can customize the setup of your handguard by placing rails only where you need them. Where needed, aircraft grade 7075-T6 aluminum is used.

As you can see, Lancer offers the handguard in extra long, rifle and carbine lengths as well as mid-length (not shown).

L5AWM

Friday, August 5th, 2011

The Advanced Warfighter Magazine from Lancer is becoming popular with users. We received this short summary from a serving member of the US military:

On the AWM mags, they are a big hit. The guys that I have given them to like them a lot and like the way that they are functioning.

I even went so far as to load a clear magazine to 28 rounds, lay it on the concrete and run it over a couple of times with a jeep. We even stopped on top of it and turned the wheels on it, grinding it into the concrete. I then picked it up and went down to the firing line and it functioned without any issues, and is still functioning today.

On another mag, we did a “cold” test. We loaded the magazine full again (28 rounds) and kept it in the freezer for about 15-20 min. Then we took it outside and shot 7 rounds and then dropped the mag out of the mag well onto concrete from a standing position. Again no issues with it cracking or anything. We then picked it up and finished off the magazine with no malfunctions.

Lancer uses a progressive mold to fully integrate PTFE coated steel feedlips into the polymer design. Additionally, they have incorporated a textured surface to facilitate a positive grip. Finally, they designed the L5ARM to even fit the H&K 416. Available in 20 and 30 round models in Translucent, Translucent Black, Translucent Brown, Black, OD, FDE, and Foliage.

SPA Defense has the magazines available for unit/agency purchase through their GSA contract # GS07F5566P.

Lancer L5 Advanced Warfighter Magazine

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

We first saw the L5AWM paired with a Beretta ARX160 and were immediately interested. Lancer uses a progressive mold to fully integrate steel feedlips into the polymer design. Additionally, they have incorporated a textured surface to facilitate a positive grip. Finally, they designed the L5ARM to even fit the H&K 416. Available in 20 and 30 round models in Translucent, Translucent Black, Translucent Brown, Black, OD, FDE, and Foliage. They are also toying with the idea of a Clear magazine for training. I am looking forward to when we can check some out.
