The T97.ca Lower Hand Guard (LHG) is a 6061-T6 aluminum component replacement for the T97NSR bullpup rifle's plastic lower. It was designed by the product developers at M14.ca, a retired Canadian Forces military officer, former gunsmith, and two expert CNC machinists. The LHG is a complex group of components designed to enhance the non-restricted T97NSR bullpup rifle and eliminate multiple shortcomings inherent to the original design.
The LHG is CNC machined from a solid block of aluminum and it offers the end user a light weight, tight fitting lower housing with skeletonized fore end and improved trigger area contours for enhanced ergonomics. It features new trigger group components that deliver a 50% reduction in trigger travel and a pull weight of approx. 4lbs. for smooth, fast and more precise followup shots. It ships with a new aluminum "T-cut" lightened trigger and an ambidextrous trigger blocking device similar to the AR15 safety (marked accordingly and useable by the support hand thumb). It adds an interchangeable/removable "Standard Trigger Guard" or "STG" and AR15 pistol grip compatiblity (pistol grip not included). Finally, it ships with an improved magazine release button.
Other features include attachment points for a QD sling at the front and 6 o'clock picatinny rail compatibility (for vertical or aftermarket angled foregrips) as well as a placement point for a T97.ca Gas/Brass Shroud for left handed shooters (earlier referred to as a brass deflector). The LHG also allows for the addition of bipods, AR15 finger stops etc.. As noted, the STG allows installation of a T97.ca-Forward Hand Grip. The STG is the only bullpup trigger guard that is removable and swappable for the LHG's Long Angled Trigger Guard (sold separately, coming 2016).
Notably, the rifle field strip remains unchanged.
The T97.ca LHG was in development for approximately 17 months (view, Official Thread of the T97NSR Lower Hand Guard (LHG) | PART II for more information on the developmental history of this part). With 8 main housing prototypes, 6 iterations of our trigger group, 4 variations of our trigger, 16 range trials and multiple range reports online, as well as a program schedule affected by demand for the T97.ca FTU, the LHG is now in its final form and ready ordering.
All parts ship with a Type II mil-spec. hard coat in black. Texture finish and color will match closely that of the T97.ca FTU. The T97.ca LHG is 100% compatible with the T97.ca FTU.
