Each URGI is fitted with the handguard Geissele designed specifically for USASOC, the MK 16 M-LOK™ Super Modular Rail handguard with a full-length Picatinny top rail and lots of slots for other accessories. T-markings are engraved on the rail but not painted white to help keep the rifle unobtrusive.
Note: if you select WarComp, we time this as neutral (ports pointed up). If you want it timed to the starboard side, please make sure to put that in the comments. Both are correct. Our gunsmiths prefer ports timed up.
Production note: In 2018 Geissele was manufacturing this, but stopped offering the clone-correct URGi. In 2020, Potomac Armory took over the build from the exact same components that Geissele used: factory Geissele, Surefire, Colt and Daniel Defense parts. All the same product, but not shipped in a Geissele box, as this is no longer a Geissele factory product. Potomac Amory and Charlie's Custom Clones are factory dealers and OEM (original equipment manufacturers), and are using 100% authentic parts, and nothing fake substituted.
Note: This barrel, with a pinned and welded flash hider will measure over 16" so it will be "street legal," and will not require NFA registration as an SBR when mounted on a lower receiver as a rifle.
Note on Surefire muzzle devices: The SOCOM versions of flash hiders will support the Surefire SOCOM family of supressors. The FAST ATTACH flash hider will support only the FAST ATTACH family of suppressors (SureFire FA556K, FA556-212, FA556MG, or MINI), suppressors, which are legacy products. All new production Surefire suppressors are SOCOM (RC1, RC2, Mini), so if you intend to attach a Surefire suppressor, make sure the mount you choose is compatible with the suppressor you have or plan to buy. Also, any of the Surefire muzzle devices will fully funtion without a suppressor.
Note on pictures: The pictures below contain shots of pre-production prototypes, as well as versions that may have been offered in the past and are no longer offered. Charlie's updates pictures from time to time. Please refer to the specifications above, which are the most accurate we have at this time.
