Designed by the “father of the KeyMod” concept, Eric Kincel, Bravo Company’s KMR-13 is a 13-inch, lightweight handguard for use with AR platform rifles. Solidly built from a blended aluminum and magnesium alloy, the KMR-13 features four offset mounting points for tactical accessories in addition to the standard 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock positions. KeyMod accessories will attach directly to the KeyMod slots rather than via Picatinny rail segments, creating a lighter, cleaner and less bulky weapon system.
