TAPCO produces a fine alternative to the traditional aluminum quad-rail that many AR-15 owners consider as standard equipment today: the TAPCO Intrafuse AR Handguard.
The TAPCO handguard is made of high strength composite and has full-length Picatinny rails on the top and bottom with half-length Picatinny rails on both sides to create the quad-rail. The bottom and side rails have detachable covers, while the top rail remains open at all times.
The covers are made of Santoprene, described as a high strength flexible rubber material, and are designed to be modular to fit the shooter’s desires. The covers can be removed in a matter of seconds, and do not require any tools to do so.
