Troy Industries recently announced they will be updating their popular line of AR15/M16 rails. The TRX Extreme, TRX Standard and VTAC/TRX Extreme rails will all be replaced with ALPHA, BRAVO and VTAC ALPHA rails respectively. They all look like really nice upgrades over their current counterparts. They will also be releasing their new “Charlie” and “Delta” rails in the coming months as well. All the more reason to build another rifle!! 🙂
One of their new products really peaked my interest. The new ALPHA rail, like the TRX Extreme, is a handguard with a smooth surface while offering a continuous 1913 picatiny rail at the 12 o’clock position. The cool part is they have now incorporated an option for a built-in spring-loaded flip up front sight.
Troy BattleRail Alpha 11″ with Spring Loaded Front BattleSight
The genesis of modular free float rails has arrived. Building off the TRX Extreme design that revolutionized rail based hand guards; the Alpha Rail® utilizes a new low-profile locking mechanism, which offers unparalleled strength and stability. The Alpha Rail® disperses heat and runs cooler than other close to the barrel rail systems.
With a built-in legendary Troy® spring loaded front BattleSight, unlimited mounting options and greater heat dispersion, the Alpha Rail® once again sets a new industry standard in modular free float rail design. Comes with three detachable rails and all mounting hardware. Troy® Alpha Rail® is machined from 6061-T6 hardened aircraft aluminum and finished in MIL-SPEC Type III Hard Coat Anodizing. Works with standard AR15/M16 barrel nut. Patent Pending. Made in the U.S.A. Available in Black and Flat Dark Earth.
