The quality is great, and the finish is nice. The 12.625 is the perfect length i need for a free float handguard with a front a2 sight in the rifle position. It was suppose to come with a barrel wrench, however it was no where to be found in the packaging.

This is the first Zev product I have purchased but I can say it wont be the last. Fit and finish are perfect,the wedge system had me hesitant at first but it is extreamly solid. The wrench you get for the install most company's seem to use a soft aluminum one that holds up for a 1 time use, not Zev the wrench is made to do some work.All in all I will be buying from Zev again.

I wish i was able to use this on my 6.5 grendel build but the BSF barrel and Bleedoff gasblock i am using was a little too big to fit under it. The package that the handguard was shipped in did not contain a barrel nut wrench. I saw someone else mention this fact but i thought that it was just a lemon. turns out it is true.

I am a Zev fanboy. I have every attachment that Zev sells and have put it on a variety of different Glocks. When I saw Zev started selling completed rifles and rifle products? Ooooo I was excited. I have an F1 Firearms upper/lower and thought this handgaurd would be a good addition to the build - and I was right! This thing is sick. Reminds me of the Zev Dragonfly handgun slide, it’s “ported” and can see the barrel really well through the windows so if you’re trying to show off your barrel this is a great hand guard. I’m regards to how slim it is, I am 6’1” with medium to big hands, and I can fully wrap my hand around the hand guard and while wrapping my hand around it, I can touch all my fingers with my thumb besides my pinky. Installation took 20ish minutes, really quick and simple. Highly recommend.

Good product. The rail has great fit and finish and is very lightweight. Locks up very tight to your upper receiver. I gave it 4 stars because I wish zev tech would have kept the original materials the rail was made of when it was made by mega. If I’m not mistaken it originally had a titanium barrel nut where the current one is steel and the body of the rail was made of 7075 t6 aluminum whereas the new one is 6061 t6 aluminum. I’m not an engineer so I’m not sure if it honestly makes a difference unless you absolutely abuse the rail. We’ll see how it holds up over time. The wedge lock system seems robust while allowing the profile of the rail to remain very slim. Be aware of accessory placement on this rail because it it is so slim that it could cause interference around the gas block. Overall it’s a great product and I would recommend it.

Best rail I have ever used! The finish is the selling point along with the wedge lock design. Zev technologies stands behind the products that they make.. from past experience they ran into a malfunction with my Glock 19.. long story short I got a brand new gun now a “fix” for the issue.

It's expensive but you get what you pay for and this is a "high end" hand guard. Several of my coworkers bought this one for .300 blackout pistol builds and it works nicely with a 9" barrel. They're also offering a rebate deal through 05/18/18 for a free upper with the purchase of this.
