  1. just right

    Posted by russ dowling on 7th Sep 2016

    After a lengthy Internet search this handguard came up and it's PERFECT in every way. It was just the length I was looking for and works with my existing hardware. It feels very good and sturdy in the hand and was extremely easy to install, thank you Apex!

  2. Fits like a glove in my hand!

    I love the feel of this handguard. Sleek design, firm gripping, plenty of space for accessories although I am only putting on 3 for sling loop, light, and bi-pod. Still lots of room if I change my mind later. Installation done by my local armor.

    The weight change was not noticeable from the stock plastic handguard S&W put on my MP10. Completely satisfied!

  3. S&W M&P 10 Apex 2550 Handguard

    Posted by Walt Kendzierski on 2nd Aug 2016

    Apex handguard proved to be as easy & simple to install as advertised. I did not have the proper size wrench for the M&P 10 barrel nut so I cut off the Delta ring, spring & clip spring. I installed the mid-length model and kept the factory gas block & gas tube. Take note to properly align the factory gas block with the receiver top rail when reinstalling. Also, there is a quarter inch gap between the handguard & factory gas block. Handguard has stayed securely in place after 200 rds., is "very grippy" without being painful. Good alternative to changing out barrel nuts for free floating handguard. My first free floating handguard, very pleased with simple install, looks & performance.

  4. M&P-10 looks awesome!

    product came well packaged, easy install. Great instructions. Super solid and with the full upper rail, lower 4" and 2" on the side it's incredibly functional and just plain looks bad- ass! 308 never looked so good!
    Great product.

  5. Better than expected (and I expected a lot).

    Posted by Mark WP on 13th Feb 2015

    Extremely light weight, and very fast and easy to install. I was a little concerned by the 'clamp on' style of mounting, but those concerns were unfounded. The system is extremely solid, and is very easy to install and adjust. The grip texture is more aggressive than I assumed it would be from the pictures, but not unpleasantly so. Tube was well packaged with all screws, and included easy to follow instructions. Over all, the product exceeded my expectations in all areas. Will definitely be looking at the AR15 version of these tubes. Great product!

  6. Easy to install and rock solid

    Posted by Brian on 10th Feb 2015

    Easy to install, rock solid. I wish it was about one inch longer other than that. Great!!!
