Link Posted: 6/23/2017 9:23:57 PM EDT

Any chance of making a short and slimmer diameter handguard?
Link Posted: 6/25/2017 1:00:36 AM EDT
In the other thread you mentioned it having a pin? It kinda sounded like it mounts different then the stock handguard? Can you elaborate??

also, whats the price points?

No pin ?
It has a 4140 heat treated retaining clip . It mounts the same as the factory unit. Takes less than a minute to install. The 12.5 version shown in this thread retails at 189.95.

The retaining pin - thats what i was thinking about

Are the carbine handguards going to basically be two M-Lok slots shorter, and the pistol handguards basically three slots shorter?

Each slot and it's spacing between should be a little over 1.5".

If so, then the carbine length should be perfect for a 10.3-10.5" barrel.

Damn you guys are slaying it! I love the look of that. Been throwing around the idea of an MCX. Definitely looking forward to seeing what you got planned for my MPX.

I second this. Please make it a consideration! The handguard is way too fat, especially for us guys that don't run a can tucked.

Finally another aftermarket rail. If I ever get around to buying an MCX, I'll put one of these rails on it.


Will your Canadian distributor being carrying these?

I love MI. That is one sexy rail.
Link Posted: 6/30/2017 10:17:34 PM EDT
So Midwest Industries, can you make a rail that is closer to fit the 16" MPX barrel (I dislike seeing so much barrel)? Kind of like the one that is being offered by SIG for their MCX Virtus line. Minus the cutout for the gas adjustment. If you use your design shape, but a little closer to their length for the 16" MPX Carbine, you will sell quite a few, or as I like to say a metric shit ton.

Received mine today. Love it! Excellent quality.

I'm looking for one for my MPX.
Link Posted: 7/20/2017 1:20:22 PM EDT
I'm close by, I need a rail for this so help a brother out. I mean, i'm sure you'll need many host guns for testing

Don't be a tease, ETA please (full length MPX, hopefully just the flash hider showing) . THX!

MPX models are in the works . Thank you for your patience and interest.

Ok, I'm interested.  Definitely for the 4.5" barrel, maybe on the 8" barrel, and I'm even thinking of a 6" barrel for the future.
Link Posted: 7/22/2017 11:03:08 AM EDT
Link Posted: 7/22/2017 1:59:37 PM EDT
How's the heat from the barrel?  Since the bottom of the handguard seems closer to the barrel than with the factory setup, I'm concerned about the heat as I really don't like AFGs or VFGs, and normally don't wear gloves.  With the factory handguard, I use BCM rail covers.

We will be starting a MPX thread with releases in the next two,three weeks . We have a bunch of lengths coming that we are sure you will like . We will keep you all in the loop.
thanks for your interest and patience .

You guys are making the ID wide enough on the MPX rails to accommodate running a can inside them right? Right? I like to run my 4.5" with a 8" hand guard over a can.

Based on my experiences with the Gen 3 MI on the AR, you will not have any issues with this set up in regards to heat, they are some solid HG's
Link Posted: 7/23/2017 4:18:55 PM EDT
I'm very much looking forward to the MPX handguard, and this has gotten me to seriously consider getting an MCX pistol as well.

Keep up the great work, MI!

Midwest Industries, you guys are my heroes.

I love that you were able to slim down the MCX handguard by jogging the bottom up after the barrel nut area. I'm kicking myself because I just bought a pistol length keymod rail from SIG, but you guys have the good stuff now. I'll be picking up an 8.5" as soon as they're available!

Once again, you guys are awesome!
