UTG PRO® MP5 Monolithic M-LOK® Handguard

A Classic Redefined 

Known as our line of Michigan made handguards, stocks, buffer tubes, and more, UTG PRO® brings to the market a classic improvement for the iconic MP5 with a unique monolithic handguard. The UTG PRO® MP5 monolithic M-LOK® handguard combines M-LOK® and optics real estate into one rigid and slim drop-in mount.

Precision CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and with an overall installed weight of only 9.6 ounces, the handguard is finished in H-146 graphite black Cerakote® in replace of a matte black anodize. A decision we made in efforts to better match the painted finish found on MP5 receivers. Our patented claw mount locking interface utilizes four proprietary lugs that are inserted from the sides and through the upper monolithic portion of the handguard where four vertically installed T10 screws securely clamp the lugs against the receiver.

The handguard, which practically spans the length of the MP5’s sight radius, provides an extended 16-slot Picatinny top rail that begins just forward of the rear sight drum and ends just before the charging handle recess notch. A cutout in the rail allows for positive identification of the serial number. Speaking of the recess notch, the part of the handguard that overlaps the notch is chamfered to specifically prevent hot spots or snag points from happening when manipulating the charging handle with or without gloves. In addition to the chamfer, access to the charging handle remains quick and effortless and shooters will have no worry about tearing up their fingers or knuckles as the top of the handguard transitions from Picatinny to M-LOK® the remainder of the way to the front sight.

Around the circumference of the handguard are a total of 17 full and 5 half M-LOK® slots. In addition, two integral anti-rotational QD sockets are featured and are located toward the front of the handguard at the 3 and 9 O’clock positions. The multiple M-LOK® positions make quick work of installing lights, lasers, foregrips, and more onto the receiver of the MP5. A task that is somewhat of a conundrum for the classical MP5 compared to more modern offerings. The UTG PRO® MP5 monolithic handguard is designed for the 9mm receiver MP5 and clones and is compatible with most, if not all, collapsible and fixed stocks.
