Hardened Arms' patented LumaShark handguard addresses the need of an integrated light source for modern AR-type rifles. Although there are plenty of rail-mounted light modules to choose from, the typical aftermarket lights often have cumbersome cables attached and have the tendency to get hung up on environmental objects in the tactical situations common to military and law enforcement personnel.

The 12" long, 18 oz. Lumashark features two integrated mounting tubes milled into the 6061-T6 billet handguard for a sleek, no-snag profile that doesn't encumber weapon operation. Each of the O-ring fitted CRE lights is waterproof to 60 ft. and provides 1150 lumens of brightness for up to 2 hours of continuous-on run time using CRE123 standard or rechargeable batteries. Future interchangeable illumination modules will include IR and laser sight options. MSRP: $399.99
