PLEASE NOTE: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND WATCH THE VIDEO PRIOR TO INSTALL. THE FOREND DOES NOT JUST ‘SLIDE ON’ LIKE THE OEM FOREND, THERE IS A SPECIFIC ORDER OR STEPS TO ENSURE PROPER INSTALLATION!
The Hammerhead Forend offers the ability to mount M-LOK accessories on the sides and underside, plus one additional M-LOK slot on the top, is more rigid than the OEM polymer forend, and an additional 2.4 inches of length over the OEM forend gives you more surface area to hang on to, especially for those with longer arms. A slot in the top of the forend allows for easy adjustment or removal of the gas piston assembly.
It is specifically designed to mount 1″ diameter flashlights with a pressure switch, with Manticore Arms recommending the Fenix PD35V3.0 light with a Fenix AER-02-V2 pressure switch. (Light, rechargeable 18650 battery with charging cable, and tape switch included if light is ordered in pulldown menu below. The light can also use a pair of CR123 batteries to power it). The new PD35V3.0 is particularly nice as a button on the front allows the choice of five different illumination levels from 5 lumens up to 1700 lumens.
The Hammerhead is made of a highly heat resistant fiber reinforced polymer and will work with both the OEM and Manticore Arms Tavor 7 full length top rails.
