Like all CASV systems, the CASV-M-2E relies on “piggy-back” mounting to the top of a “flat-top” M4 or M16A4 upper receiver. This chassis features a removable lower handguard, which allows the access of an M203 grenade launcher. The smooth body construction allows multiple rail mounting points, adaptable to any mission needs. The CASV-M Kit come with one top filler rail section and hardware.
The CASV-M-2E is designed to accommodate a mid-length gas system rifles as a drop on replacement handguard. Taking from the same battle proven design as the CASV-M-2, the new CASV-M-2E is extended to be a 10" handguard.
The CASV-M-2E features a removable lower handguard section and removable rail sections. The area forward of the top rail can be filled with a short rail to mount any same plane front flip iron sight.
Like all CASVs, the CASV-M-2E relies on the use of on the Delta Ring for a more secure mounting point. Vltor does not recommend that any CASV handguard be used without the standard Delta Ring assembly.
This CASV chassis features a QD sling swivel socket on the left and right sides.
Installation note: The installation of this handguard does not require any modifications to the firearm except for the removal of the sight tower sling swivel (if your carbine is equipped with one).
