Not sure how I’ve totally missed this but the guys at RailScales are about to release their new S³ (Serrated Scales Stop) Handstop. Looks like the G10 version will be available for purchase starting this coming Friday (2/6/15) with the Aluminum and Titanium versions to follow. At first they will only be available in KeyMod with M-LOK versions to come soon. Apparently they will also fit the War Sport LVOA rail by removing the KeyMod nut and screwing it directly to the rail. Pics, Pricing and details for the RailScales S³ Handstops are listed below. These will be available for purchase on www.GetRailScales.com.
Finally!!! Our S³ handstops are ready for purchase. The G10 versions will be available first, on the website late next week. Aluminum and Ti will be available the following week. Pricing and weights! The S³ retail pricing will be $69 for G10 or Aluminum, take your pick. The Serialized Titanium price will be announced in the coming days, it will include some extra goodies, watch for the detailed post.
Weights G10 – 0.6oz
Aluminum (6061) – 0.8oz
Titanium (6AL4V) – 1.3oz
After a long deliberation we decided to offer the Aluminum in the raw (sandblasted), leaving you to decide how to finish it. We have spent a lot time talking with friends, customers, etc as to what color, hard coat, paint, cerakote etc to offer, and about every response was something different. The Sand colored one was cerakoted and has held up nicely. In the future we might do a couple of anodized colors, Black and FDE. But we want to wait to get feedback from those that purchase to ultimately decide. We will be posting more details on each of the materials in the coming days as well as a comparison chart, showing how they stack up against each other.
