PLEASE READ THE GUIDE BELOW BEFORE MAKING THE PURCHASE OF THE 308 RAIL

Selecting a Handguard for your AR-10/AR-308/LR-308?

The family of rifles generally referred to as "AR-10"s or "AR-308"s encompasses a variety of rifles from a variety of manufacturers.  Although similar in appearance and function, different rifles may have different upper receiver designs with parts that may or may not be interchangeable.  This situation makes shopping for a free float quad rail or handguard a bit complicated.
 
 
 
AR-10 style rifles have a few different commonly used barrel nut designs (the attachment point for a free float handguard), each of which is compatible only with a free float quad rail or handguard built specifically for that design.  The two most common standards are for the original AR-10 and for the DPMS LR-308.  Both of these standards are now used by a number of different manufacturers.
 
Armalite AR-10 Style Handguards
 
The original AR-10 was developed in the 1950’s by ArmaLite, who still owns the AR-10 trademark and sells the only rifle officially called the AR-10. ArmaLite AR-10 rifles use their own proprietary barrel nut standard which is incompatible with most AR-10/308 derivative rifle models on the market. The thread specifications for the AR-10 barrel nut are 1-7/16” and 18 TPI-3A. Besides ArmaLite, some popular rifle models that have licensed and use this barrel nut design include the Eagle Arms AR-10 the Noveske N6.  Handguards compatible with these rifles are offered by LaRue, PRI, Badger Ordinance and Daniel Defense among others.
 
DPMS LR-308 Style Handguards
 
Rifle maker DPMS would go on to develop their own AR-10 style rifle called the LR-308, with the same general design but with a number of parts incompatible across platforms including the barrel nut/handguard. The barrel nut standard based on the popular DPMS LR-308 has become the most widely adopted on the market.  The thread specifications for the LR-308 barrel nut are 1-7/16” and 16 TPI-
2A. Numerous manufacturers make rifles using the LR-308 barrel nut standard including the Remington R25 and the Bushmaster 308 ORC.
 
*Please note that while the barrel nut standard for the DPMS LR-308 rifles has remained the same, there are two different versions of DPMS upper receiver that differ in the height of the receiver rail.  Upper receivers manufactured before August 2009 have a high profile receiver rail, while upper receivers manufactured after August 2009 have a low profile receiver rail.  Handguards made for the low profile receiver will still fit the older receiver, but the top rail will not align squarely with the receiver top rail.
 
We carrie Made in USA low profile DPMS LR-308 pattern free float Keymod and Mlok rails in a variety of lengths at the lowest prices anywhere starting at just $49.95.  
 
DPMS GII Handguards 
To confuse matters further, in 2014 DPMS released the DPMS GII 308 rifle.  The DPMS GII is likewise, a DPMS made .308 rifle with an AR style design.  However, the GII uses its own proprietary barrel nut standard.  GII barrel nuts are not interchangeable with LR-308 barrel nuts.
 
Other Non-Standard/Proprietary Handguards
 
Besides these standards, several other manufacturers of AR-10 style rifles use their own non-standard or proprietary style of barrel nut including Ruger SR-762 and the Daniel Defense DD5 V1.
 
AR-10/AR-308/LR-308 Free Float Rail/Handguard Compatibility List
To confirm what type of handguard will fit on your AR-10/308 rifle please refer to our AR-10/308 hand guard compatibility list below.  The list is not comprehensive.  If you have any additions or updates, please let us know.  Before purchasing a handguard, we highly recommending confirming compatibility with your rifle manufacturer.

    Great rail for 18 or 20 inch

    Posted by Tasso J. Taylor, IV on 2nd Apr 2020

    I was going between a couple different rail length and decide on this one. I have it on an 18” DPMS .308. I love it!!!!!

    This rail is great! No down sides at all. Comfortable to hold in off hand and I really like that the rail where the front sight goes is part of the handguard itself. If you are on the fence about the length just get it! The rail is light and has plenty of real estate to put anything you may want. My bipod works great on it and I really really like the extra length. Who would if ya know what I’m sayin’ wink wink. Lol

    Seriously this rail is awesome!

    Perfect fit

    Posted by Jim from Indiana on 30th May 2019

    This handguard lines up perfectly with the low profile DPMS style upper receiver. It looks great and is 7075 aluminum, which is the same metal as my receivers. It has been stone tumbled or deburred in some way because it has no sharp edges to make your grip uncomfortable. The price is very good too. Thanks Tony Ade!

    Well made, but will need tinkering

    Posted by Bob on 11th Feb 2018

    The LR308 hand guard is very light weight, has rails where you need them, and has provisions to add rails if you want more. The barrel nut is two sided, allowing you to install it from either side to get it properly timed to the upper receiver. That said, you will likely need a shim kit to get everything properly lined up. Would be nice if one were included.

    The screws that attach the hand guard to the barrel nut are slightly long. You will need to shorten them, otherwise they will not seat all the way, and if you get unequal tension on each side, your hand guard will not run parallel to the barrel. Shorten the screws to avoid this problem.

    Otherwise, the hand guard is well made and worth the comparatively modest price. And by the way, the 17" unit looks great over my 18" barrel with comp.
