The Workhorse is Near Perfect!

by -

I have the 9.5" and the 15" Workhorse handguard on rifles I own. Installed correctly, they are rock-solid and very light. The attachment options are as elegant as they can be - no more picatinny rail than you need with plenty of M-lock options.
<br>My only caution is this: the barrel nut locking mechanism is a little finicky. Be meticulous when bolting it on, and it will be as stable as granite. I got it wrong the first time, and it tended to rock back and forth a bit.
<br>The quality of Battle Arms Development's pruduct line has made them one of a few of my no-hesitation go-to manufacturers!
