Many people tend to neglect upgrading the handguards on their ARs. No matter what type of build you are going for you should put at least some consideration in this area. Do you need a rail system? If so do you need multiple rails, top, bottom, side etc.
Perhaps you just want a simple handguard to be used as its original purpose. It is all up to you. However, if you are truly looking to make a statement with your AR, then perhaps you should consider custom AR Handguards.

#6. The Spartan – Unique-ARs.com
Yet another unique handguard and custom rifle by Unique-ARs.com I know it seems like the majority of the options on this list are done by them. However, I was searching the net I was unable to find any other 1s that just popped for style like their stuff does.
I do not have any affiliate relationship with them and just think their stuff looks cool. Anyway check out their gallery at unique-ars.com/gallery
#7. Aeroknox AX – Sold by Wingtactical.com
While not having as unique a pattern as some of the other options, I chose function over looks in this instance. Featuring a partial picatinny rail along the top with a slight depression, this design allows for those individuals who place their thumb on top when holding the handguard. This prevents the sights from being blocked by the shooters hand.
The Aeroknox AX also features M-lok style fittings for added utility. It is designed to fit most AR15 style rifles and is sold by Wingtactical.com.
Concluding our Custom Ar Handguards List
None of these choices were sponsored, I just felt they were interesting custom AR handguards and should be included here. I am not sure that I would purchase any of these with the exception of maybe the Aeroknox AX, since I tend to only go for function myself. However, I would happily receive any of them as a gift.
