UTG PRO USA
goes Ultra Slim
M A K I N G
UTG PRO’S Super Slim handguards have been a great success –
due in part to a durable and lightweight design at a reasonable price
point for the consumer. Now it’s gone Ultra Slim…
UTG PRO has released another free fl oat
handguard, building on its previous success and
with a new look, feel, and function. Named
the Ultra Slim, it’s one of the lightest aluminum 15in
handguards on the market.
By removing excess material, particularly a large
portion of the top Picatinny rail, as well as some
additional lightening cuts in key areas, UTG PRO has
made a handguard that weighs in at just 10oz installed,
if purchasing the titanium barrel nut version.
TITANIUM, YOU SAY?
Yes, one SKU – MTU019SSM3T – designates the
Ultra Slim handguard that comes with UTG PRO’s
proprietary two-piece titanium barrel nut, whereas the
MTU019SSM3 SKU designates the inclusion of its
standard two-piece steel barrel nut, as seen in the Super
Slim series, and weighs11.5oz.
Th e Ultra Slim handguard has a minimalist
and weight-saving top Picatinny rail with recessed
lightening cuts and features only six Picatinny slots
– three toward the rear of the rail, just in front of the
receiver, and three at the front towards the muzzle.
Th e Ultra Slim has M-LOK slots at the three, six,
and nine o’clock positions only, which diff ers from its
Super Slim line-up and instead incorporates additional
lightening cuts in replace of where M-LOK were
previously machined, making the handguard’s name
really speak for itself.
A uniquely knurled surface can be found on the
left and right sides of the handguard providing an
aesthetically pleasing new look while delivering added
Th ese handguards retain the same well-received
octagonal profi le, grooved surface and integral rotation
tabs seen on the Super Slim series, but unlike previous
series are designed to be compatible with left or rightside
ejecting AR15s, so south paws you are in luck!
Precision machined from 6061-T6 aircraft
aluminium and fi nished in a matte-black hard coat,
the Ultra Slim handguards include two M-LOK
accessories, an eight-slot Picatinny rail section and a
QD sling swivel adaptor and are made in Michigan.
