Tippmann Arms M4-22 - 12" Aluminum Free Float Handguard
To fit this handgaurd on a AR-15 it requires the AR-15 Barrel Nut
This handguard is a great upgrade to your M4-22. The M-LOK design allows mounting of bipods, grips, lights, or lasers and optics.
Free float handguards are known to improve accuracy. The accuracy of the free floating handguard comes from the fact that the handguard doesn’t touch the barrel – it is mounted directly to the upper receiver. This allows the barrel to “float” and gives better harmonics, resulting in slightly better accuracy.
The accuracy difference is especially evident when using grips or bipods on the handguard. When you rest a rifle on a bipod that is attached to the barrel (or a drop-in handguard) the bipod will create force that can slightly warp the barrel. This small amount of warping can provide fairly significant accuracy issues down the range. But with a free float handguard, you can put all kinds of force on the handguard and it won't affect the barrel whatsoever.

Very easy to install. Great upgrade over the original plastic handguard. Makes my rifle training to feel more like a actual full sized caliber AR.
I purchased an M-4 22 along with a 12 inch rail and took it to an Appleseed shoot.. I have consistently shot in the 220’s to 230’s in previous shoots with other scoped rifles. But with the Tippmann, I shot in the 240’s in both standard and rapid fire events scoring Distiguished with a score of 246, and 244 respectively. The maximum possible score is 250. I caught more than one shooter looking at my setup.
The handguard is well made and fits very well, built heavy and should be tough. I gave it 3 stars because it arrived damaged, the finish had a scratch in it about a 1/8 inch wide through to the metal.
Awesome upgrade if you have the pro model. The handguard feels very high quality and the install was incredibly easy, it uses the same barrel nut as the polymer handguard so nothing to change there.
Excellent product fits and looks great I recommend it
As with everything I have bought from tippmann excellent fit and finish and great shipping times , keep up the great work .
