KMR 13 (KeyMod Free Float Handguard) - 13"
from an exclusive blended aluminum and magnesium alloy, it weighs 30-40% less
than aluminum with the same strength properties. Also featuring a proprietary
patent pending mounting, indexing and lock up system that mitigates 12:00 rail
movement under heat generated from the barrel nut.
Handguard alone weighs 5.5oz!
· 1.3” Inner
OUTSIDE flat to flat.
Handguard flares forward (towards
muzzle end) at the 3 and 9 O'clock positions approximately 1/4"
Actual length when measured to flare is 13.4"
hardware, 2.2oz, for a total of 7.7oz on a 10” rail.
KMR’s propriety finish was originally developed for the Aerospace industry. It
is a plasma deposition process which creates a stabilized ceramic-like surface
coating with superior wear resistance when compared to anodize or even hard
chrome. The stabilized nature of the coating means it has a higher corrosion
resistance as well, due to the lack of ‘pores’ in the surface.
KeyMod™ interface system was developed by Eric Kincel (now the Director of
BCMs' product development team) to work in parallel with the current picatinny
system. In many applications it will advance modularity past the current 1913
BCM KMR also allows for a larger range of modularity offering 4 different
offset mounting positions between traditional 3,6,9, and 12:00 positions.
the most basic of applications the KeyMod™ system allows for universal modularity
between various manufacturers of accessories, and accessory rails. A big win
for the trigger puller. As the industry advances the
modular accessories will mount directly to the KeyMod™ instead of picatinny,
allowing for a lighter, cleaner, and less bulky weapon system.
