Phase 5 Weapon Systems just introduced their new 15″ Lo-Pro Slope Nose M-LOK rail. This version is different from their other rails by removing all but the very front portion of the 12 o’clock picatinny rail as well as completely removing the short picatinny rail sections at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and replaced them with a full run of M-LOK attachment slots. You can read more about the new Phase 5 Weapon Systems LPSN M-LOK rail below.
The 15″ LO-PRO SLOPE NOSE M-LOK Free Float Quad Rail was developed to accommodate the features of our 7.5″ LPSN quad rail to a longer 15″ version. The LPSN15 M-LOK was inspired by beneficial features that shooters have requested and demanded from us and other manufacturers.
M-LOK is a modular locking accessory mounting system that is a direct attachment method for hard mounting accessories to a negative space mounting point. Designed by Magpul Industries as an evolution of the MOE® slot system used since 2007.
The slender light weight design, longer nose, ease of installation and superior construction and finish quality are some of the features that we designed into this system.
The LPSN15 M-LOK undergoes a rigorous extra de-burring process in order to ensure a smoother snag free finish. The details and level of care during the manufacturing of the LPSN15 M-LOK makes it the perfect choice for your AR-15 rifle build.
TRUE-FIT TECHNOLOGY UTILIZED WITH THE LPSN15 M-LOK. Phase 5’s True-fit™ technology was developed to secure the rail system onto the barrel nut with an accurate and solid full contact method around the entire surface area. The Phase 5 Weapon Systems Inc. True-fit™ rail attachment system gives the operator peace of mind and confidence that the system will not move or come loose. This is accomplished with 6 screws that form the rail with our True Fit feature around the barrel nut without distorting or pinching the rail at the bottom like in other rails on the market. Phase 5’s True-fit™ rail attachment system allows for the repeated removal and reinstallation of the rail without fatigue.
Overall Length:15 inches
Inner Diameter: 1.350”
The new LPSN M-LOK rail can be purchased at www.Phase5WSI.com.
I’ve been trying to figure out what to use my Fortis Mfg 14″ Night Rail on and finally tonight decided on modifying a rifle I had already built.
I removed the stock, grip, rail and muzzle device so that all I was left with was a San Tan Tactical billet ambi receiver set, buffer tube, ALG Defense ACT trigger and a Joint Force Enterprises 16″ Match barrel. I then added the Bravo Company USA Gunfighter stock, Magpul grip and MBUS PRO, Fortis Mfg Night Rail and Gas Block, VG6 Precision Epsilon muzzle device, Hexmag magazine and an Aimpoint PRO in an American Defense Mfg mount.
I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. Super stoked to give the Fortis Night Rail a run this weekend if I get some time to shoot. Looks pretty sick to me. You can purchase the new Fortis Mfg Night Rail in 12″ or 14″ in your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK right now at www.FortisMfg.com.

Wilson Combat recently updated their very popular T.R.I.M. rails with the KeyMod accessory attachment system. As we’ve all seen over the past few years, there are hundreds if not thousands of KeyMod accessories available for your rifles and its definitely here to stay. The Wilson Combat T.R.I.M. rails are super solid, very well machined and beautifully finished rails. The KeyMod rails are available in 3 different lengths. According to Wilson Combat there are no plans for an M-LOK version. If you’re looking for a new KeyMod rail, you might want to check these out.
Wilson Combat T.R.I.M. Rails now available in Key-Mod. Available in 10.4″, 13.8″ and 15″ variants. The best of both worlds-our lightweight but rock solid T.R.I.M rails for AR pattern rifles have been updated with the market leading, revolutionary KeyMod™ attachment system. These new AR handguard rails are among the ultimate in high quality, user-installed modularity.
AERO Precision has just introduced their new Quantum Series Handguard. The Quantum Series is similar to their other hand guards that are designed to mount directly to their M4E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver but you can also add an optional barrel nut at checkout to use this handguard in conjunction without the M4E1 Enhanced Upper. The hand guards are very simple with no 1913 rail section at the top but it does have a spot at the front of the rail to mount a small rail section for use with Front BUIS.
What surprised me the most was the price point on these. Both KeyMod and M-LOK versions are available in 7″, 9″, 12″ and 15″ and range from as little as $65 for the 7″ without a barrel nut or up to $110 for the 15″ including the optional barrel nut. That is extremely affordable. You can check out the information and pictures below. These are available for purchase now at www.AEROPrecision.com.

Introducing the new Quantum Series Handguard. Designed with price in mind, this free float handguard is available in KeyMod and M-LOK in lengths of 7″, 9″, 12″ and 15″.
The design features multiple mounting surfaces and is compatible with our M4E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver, but can also be used on a standard threaded upper with a BAR Barrel Nut. Also included is a 4 slot picatinny rail section for mounting a front sight.
Bootleg Inc. was formed last year as a sister company of Primary Weapons Systems (PWS). Their sole focus is on Direct Impingement (DI) accessories and AR builder education. Their goal is to provide quality products and information for anyone that would like to build an AR. You may not know the name but you’ve most likely seen their products as they were heavily covered during SHOT Show 2016 on the new Primary Weapons Systems “MOD2” and Agency Arms “Project Classified” rifles. Some of the new products that were made for those two rifles are now available for purchase separately through Bootleg Inc. Those product are the Bootleg PicMod rail, Bootleg Lightweight Adjustable Carrier (great for suppressor use) and the Bootleg Lightweight Upper Receiver. Take a few minutes to check out their new products below.

A few days ago SMOS Arms released a picture of some rails that were in the raw. SMOS Arms is well know for their slim rails that they have OEM’d for other well known companies. What’s cool about these rails they shared are that they are Quad Rails and they feature a modular cutout system. One is for an AR with a standard Front Sight Post or you can add in a small rail section at the top creating a smaller cutout to be used in conjunction with the Noveske Switch Block or possibly other adjustable gas block systems. There really aren’t a ton of details available for these new rails just yet but just wanted to share the sneak peek with you in case you didn’t see it yourself. Of course as with all prototypes, we’ll have to keep watching to see how product units come out.
I’ve been using a couple of these 556 Tactical rails over the past few years and they are pretty awesome. Recently 556 Tactical has decided to go another route and will be offering a new rail so its time to sell their current stock of SKR rails at a closeout prices. Currently 556 has their 12″ SKR rails on sale for just $155. Its hard to find a decent rail for that price, let alone a nice one like this. You can get in on this deal at www.556Tactical.com.
Fortis Manufacturing introduced a neat new rail at SHOT Show back in January called the Night Rail. The Night Rail utilizes a new patent pending two piece barrel nut that creates a full 360 degrees of contact with the inside of the rail instead of a clamping the rail onto the barrel nut or using screws. This also makes installation very simple as the barrel nut does not need to be timed. Just tighten to the upper, slide the rail on and expand the barrel nut. Rainier Arms has secured the first run of rails and is offering them at an exclusive introductory price. This first run is for the 12″ version. They do plan on offering 7″, 9″, 12″, 14″ and 15″ versions. Check out the pics below. There is an informative installation video at the link below if you are wanting to see how this installs as well.
When designing the Night Rail™, we wanted to design a handguard that was easy to install, but also to be able to mount with a full 360 degrees of contact. Our new patent pending two piece barrel nut is one of a kind. We developed this from the ground up and the machining time it takes to make the barrel nut, rivals the time making the actual rail. That’s not to say the rail is simple to make. One look and you’ll see that we really took time with this in design and development. What we ended up with is a rail that not only looks amazing, but is still true to our lightweight brand. The barrel nut/mounting system keeps the rail performing even during the harshest conditions.
Being one of the leaders in the industry of rail innovation and design, it’s always a challenge to innovate new products that function well, but look great also. We’re up for the challenge with the next chapter of our product line – the Night™ Series. I think you’ll agree that we hit a homerun with the Night Rail™.
– Material: Aircraft Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum / Barrel Nut: 4140 Steel
– Proprietary, patent pending 2 piece barrel nut that provides 360 degree contact
– Free float rail design
– No visible screws on the rail system

– 8.9 oz Without the barrel nut

– 1.37″ Internal Diameter

Available now at an exclusive intro price of just $199.95 at www.RainierArms.com.

Out of all of the AR upgrades out there, one of the must haves for me is an upgraded rail/handguard. Pretty sure most AR owners feel the same. A few years ago Fortis Manufacturing introduced their new SWITCH rail which features a Quick Detach system that lets you install/remove the rail quickly for maintenance, adjusting a gas block or multiple rail configurations, etc. The Fortis Mfg SWITCH rail only comes with the KeyMod mounting system at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock spots. With Magpul promoting and supporting M-LOK it was only a matter of time before the new M-LOK SWITCH rail would be produced.
Fortis Mfg has partnered up with Rainier Arms to offer the Rainier Arms exclusive M-LOK SWITCH 5.56 rail. The M-LOK SWITCH is now available in 9 1/4″, 12″, 13″ and 15.5″ lengths, all with the Rainier Arms logo on them. While M-LOK and KeyMod seem to have about the same support from accessory manufacturers, many users prefer the clean look of the M-LOK system. If you’re on the M-LOK train, you might want to check out this awesome new Rainier Arms M-LOK SWITCH 5.56 rail.
This version of the quick detach rail system SWITCH is a Rainier Arms exclusive.
The SWITCH is an extremely lightweight, yet robust free float rail system designed for the 5.56MM platform. When designing the SWITCH, we wanted a handguard that was easy to install, but also be able to quickly change rails for a variety of mission or competition specific setups. The rail features a brand new patent pending locking mechanism that allows tool-less removal of the rail.
The rail features M-LOK slots, QD attachments point as well as a full picatinny rail on top.
The rail design not only looks great, but is very functional in your hand. The piece adds minimal weight to the rifle and you won’t be disappointed!
