A good handguard mainly serves two purposes: protect our hands from scorching while firing our sporting rifles and allow us to mount equipment.
One fact people often overlook when choosing handguards is that traditional drop in handguards can affect your rifle’s overall accuracy because it is “warping” around the barrel.
If you are serious about your accuracy in shooting and hunting, free-float handguard is a great option.
Benefits of Drop-in Handguards
If you are a beginner, using drop-in handguards is a good start because they are a lot simpler than free float handguard.
Drop in handguards are inexpensive and very easy to install on your hunting rifle and lightweight.
The structure of Drop-ins is simple, they are held in place using a delta-ring with a spring load mechanism.
Drop-in handguards can be easily attached and detached as all you need to do is pushing the delta-ring forward to release tension on the guard.
It is kind of user-friendly for beginners who just start their journey of hunting and shooting.
Benefits of Free Float Handguards
Free float handguards are directly attached to the rifle’s upper-receiver. Great things about free float handguards include improved stability and hence accuracy, tactical flexibility and overall aesthetic.
Shooters can easily attach multiple accessories like dot sights and scopes to a free float handguard without losing stability or accuracy.
Some test shows that rifles with a free float handguard somewhere between .5 to .75 MOA improvement over the one’s with drop-in style handguards.
Leaving the barrel float freely within the handguard, mostly reducing the effect of forces impact on the barrel.
Besides, longer rail with free float handguard is a helpful feature allowing shooters to get a better grip hence gain more recoil control when firing.
Free float style handguards are generally slightly more expensive than the drop-in handguards but they are well worth the price！
They will bring great satisfaction to customers who loves hunting and shooting with firearms!
