Bowden Tactical has recently released their 7 inch AR-V AR-15 pattern handguard that is designed to mimic the iconic H&K MP5 handguard.

Bowden Tactical states “There are dozens of different looks to the MP5 manufactured over the decades, but the classic MP5 with the sloped plastic handguard, side charger and iconic HK sights is still by far one of the most popular.

This is the model we used for our AR-V style handguard.

Designed for the AR-15 pistol platform you get the MP5 look without the cost.

The New 7-inch model opens this look up to the direct impingement 5.56/.223 7.5 inch pistol market.”

  • A two-inch long barrel nut ensures rigid mounting for rock-solid accessory mounting. ( this system will not work with piston-driven rifles)
