Our friends at 556 Tactical keep rolling out some awesome new AR-15 components. The latest addition is to their already awesome line of rail systems and is called the SKR or Stryke KeyMod Rail. The SKR features the signature 556 Tactical angled cut on the front end of the rail giving it a very unique and awesome look. It also features a different mounting setup with a proprietary barrel nut that attaches to the rail using 6 bolts. As with most KeyMod rails, the SKR has KeyMod slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock sides as well as a full length 1913 Picatinny rail section at 12 o’clock. Obviously no rail would be complete without QD Sling Mounts towards the rear on both sides too. The SKR comes in both a 12.1″ and 15″ lengths and are available for purchase right now at www.556Tactical.com. Details and pictures below.
556 Tactical is pleased to announce Stryke Keymod Rail System (SKR). The SKR KeyMod handguards features the KeyMod Interface System developed for multiple accessory compatibility without the need for picatinny rails surrounding your handguard. The improved design enhances the rails comfort and functionality without sacrificing strength or durability. Industry leading features include a solid handguard machined from extruded 6061-T6 aluminum, a continuous top Picatinny rail and QD sling swivel points at the front and rear of the handguard. This super-slim handguard is designed to work with carbine, mid- and rifle length Direct Impingement (DI) gas systems.
