With a solid, one-piece hand guard and one-piece barrel nut, the ODIN Works M-LOK RAGNA Hand guard has been ingeniously designed to make installation as simple as possible, and as fast as it possibly can be. The Free-Floating RAGNA Hand guard comes in 3 specific lengths to fit all your AR-15 needs, 12.5″, 15.5″, and 17.5″ inches. It’s extremely lightweight and tough for its size because it’s made of 6061-T6 aluminum. The 6061-T6 aluminum ODIN Works uses has a minimum tensile strength of 42,000 PSI. All of these features and materials combine to make the ODIN Works M-LOK RAGNA Hand guard one of the best forends available today.
One of the hardest parts about adding accessories to your AR-15 can be switching out the factory forend for a KeyMod, M-LOK, or Picatinny rail set up. The usual procedure involves the removal of the muzzle device, front sight tower and gas block, forend and hardware, gas tube, and the barrel nut. Then, once all of that was disassembled, you would shim the barrel nut and test the fit to make sure the gas tube could fit through the hole at the “12 o’clock” position. During this process, you would also be making sure that the top rail on the new forend lines up with the receiver rail for optic alignment. Then once all that was done correctly, you would go back through and reinstall the parts you removed. But now, the entire process of shimming and lining up the barrel nut and gas tube is no longer required. During the designing of the Ragna Handguard, ODIN Works also re-thought the AR-15 barrel nut and built one that was small enough so it didn’t interfere with the gas tubes’ location or install. The Ragna Handguard fits right over the ODIN Works barrel nut and tightens down with the included hardware, giving the AR builder a free-floated rail.
Plus, the way that the RAGNA hand guard is machined helps to break up the shape of the rifle, especially if you compliment your AR-15 build with a top of the line Cerakote job from Dirty Bird Industries LLC. With multiple online 5-STAR reviews at the time this was written, anyone can see why these are a great addition to any AR project or existing platform.
