Fortis Switch .308 Rail 12″ and 14″ Models Released Today

Posted on April 25th, 2014 by ar15news

Fortis Manufacturing just released their innovative new Switch rail for .308 rifles today. The Switch rail is a quick release/install KeyMod rail that allows you to remove or install the rail by using the lever on the bottom of the rail. This gives you easy access to the barrel and gas system for cleaning and also lets you have multiple rails with different setups that you can easily swap out depending on what you need at the time. The Fortis Switch .308 rail is designed for SR-25/DPMS style .308 AR rifles. Rainier Arms has received the first shipment of rails and is offering them all at a special introductory price. Check out the pics and specs below then head on over to and purchase one for yourself.


Fortis MFG’s quick detach rail system SWITCH™ features a brand new locking mechanism that allows a tool-less removal of the rail itself for easy access to the proprietary barrel nut and gas block, and what we believe is most important, is to be able to quickly change rails for a variety of mission or competition specific setups.

These .308 versions weighs in at a mere 8.7oz for the 12” model and 10oz for the 14”. Each model will feature Keymod Slots and QD Attachment Points at the 3, 6 and 9 O’clock position as well as a full length Picatinny Rail on top.

–  12″ = 12.42″ long, 14″ = 14.76” long
–  Rail Body 6061 T6 Alum
–  Handle 7075 T6 Alum
–  Mil. Spec. Hard-coat Anodized
–  4140 heat treaded barrel nut (1-7/16 X 16 T.P.I.)
