Griffin AR15 rail kits include rail panels, gas block assemblies, and all tools and hardware needed for a turnkey rail system.

The design objective for the Griffin Low-Pro RIGID™ rails were to provide a slim, ultralight M-LOK rail, with increased rigidity over current similar market options.

Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID Rail Kit 3

“We had been looking at the market for a while and noticed that there were two types of rails essentially. Rails that were beefy and strong, and rails that were slim and unfortunately weaker. We wanted to combine the desirable attributes of both category products into one optimal rail system.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on, “The final design resulted in 70% more rigidity than current similar market slim rails. This is important for those who need to use IR lasers as armed professionals or for hunting. There are a lot of great options now in IR laser aimer products that have solid mounting and solid bodies and we wanted to make a slim rail that provided industry leading point of aim / point of impact for those aimers.”

Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID Rail Kit 1

Low-Pro RIGID™ rails feature a 7075 aluminum barrel nut which can be installed with the included Griffin Armorers Wrench. The mounting is done with included shims and flat head cap screws for an ultra-flush and low profile mating to the receiver. 17-4 stainless QD flush cups are included which thread into the barrel nut through holes in the rail.  

The kits include the Griffin Primo Gas Block™, a 416R stainless .750” ID gas block which can be set screwed in place and / or pinned.

Additionally, the rail kits include the Griffin RAIL SHIELD™ panels as standard equipment. This 4 piece kit provides a 4.6” length surface for heat protection and griping. The user can choose to use the flat bottom panel or angled grip panel for enhanced recoil control.

Cost Effective Scout Light and Mount Alternative

Posted on July 12th, 2016 by ar15news

A while back Arisaka Defense started offering their own take on the popular Scout Light to go along with their awesome Scout Mounts which have proven to be so popular they have had a hard time making enough light bodies to even keep them in-stock. With the success of their Scout Lights soaring, Arisaka looked for another cost effective option for their customers who needed something now and have found that in the Streamlight ProTac lights. 

The Steamlight ProTac lights come with a standard picatinny rail mount that attaches to the light body the same way any other scout mount does. Arisaka has started carrying the Streamlight ProTac 1 and 2 cell lights and pairing them with their awesome Arisaka Scout Mounts at extremely affordable prices.

Phase 5 Weapon Systems 15″ Lo-Pro Slope Nose M-LOK Rail

Posted on June 13th, 2016 by ar15news

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.

phase 5 banner

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.

Phase 5 LPSN MLOK rail 2

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.

Phase 5 LPSN MLOK rail 1

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.

My Fortis Manufacturing Night Rail Found A Home

Posted on June 4th, 2016 by ar15news

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.

AERO Precision QUANTUM Series AR-15 Handguards

Posted on April 25th, 2016 by ar15news

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.

**Quote from the AERO Precision Facebook page**

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.

Rainier Arms Exclusive – M-LOK SWITCH 5.56 Rail

Posted on February 18th, 2016 by ar15news

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!

Centurion Arms Adds KeyMod and M-LOK to the CMR Lineup

Posted on January 21st, 2016 by ar15news

This week at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Centurion Arms sneakily introduced two new versions of their extremely popular CMR rail in the Magpul and BattleComp booths. The CMR rail is a very slim, rugged, tubular rail. It features threaded holes every couple of inches to bolt the CMR rail covers, hand stops, etc to but most accessories made by other companies are designed to attach to 1913 quad rails, KeyMod rails or M-LOK rails. Now you can get the CMR in your choice of KeyMod or M-LOK as well.

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

Now that you can choose KeyMod or M-LOK, it really opens up a whole new world of usable accessories you can attach to your CMR rail. I’ve got a ton of grips, light mounts, hand stops, rail sections, rail covers, etc. just waiting for an awesome rail like this. I immediately installed the CMR M-LOK rail on my CIV Tactical SPR build. The ability to add a picatinny rail for my bipod via M-LOK (or KeyMod for that matter) is quick and painless. 

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

The overall profile of the new CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails is very similar to the original CMR and still features anti-rotation tabs. The barrel nut is also very similar, in fact the new rail will mount to an older CMR barrel nut, but Centurion Arms actually modified the new barrel nut to be able to tighten them using a standard AR-15 castle nut wrench. 

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

The production model CMR KeyMod and M-LOK rails will have QD Sling Mounts at the front and rear of the rail on each side just like the original (the ones in my photos were pre-production) and will be available in both 15″ (shown) and 13″ models.

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

Centurion Arms CMR MLOK KeyMod 1

MSRP on the new rails will run $240 for a 15″ and $230 for a 13″. Centurion Arms will start taking pre-orders at the beginning of February at an introductory price of just $200 for a 15″ or $195 for a 13″ and start shipping units around the end of February. Centurion Arms is an awesome company owned and operated by a retired Navy SEAL. Lets show them some support!

NEW!! Faxon Firearms STREAMLINE M-LOK Handguards

Posted on January 14th, 2016 by ar15news

As we’ve mentioned in the past, Faxon Firearms has grown a lot over the last year or two with the addition of AR-15 barrels, now offering complete Direct Impingement AR-15’s and now they are offering their own line of AR-15 handguards. Faxon Firearms has introduced their new STREAMLINE M-LOK Handguards which include a 12 o’clock run of 1913 rail surrounded by 7 additional runs of M-LOK cutouts. They’ve also opted to not include a sling mount which I like because it doesn’t add bulk to the rail and lets you add an M-LOK sling mount wherever you want it. The rail is very sleek looking and is available in 7″, 9″, 13″ and 15″ lengths with an extremely competitive price range of just $135 to $149. Check out the press release and images below, then head on over to www.FaxonFirearms.com to snag one for yourself.

NEW!! Midwest Industries SP Line of Handguards with 1.75″ ID

Posted on December 14th, 2015 by ar15news

One of the more popular setups in the AR world right now is utilizing a longer rail with a large Inside Diameter (ID) that will accommodate either a suppressor or a larger blast diffuser muzzle device like the Noveske KX3. Seems like every time I post something about a new rail the number one question is “Whats the Inside Diameter?” for that very reason. Midwest Industries just introduced their new SP line of hand guards that features a 1.75″ ID which is large enough for many suppressors. The Noveske KX3 at 1.37″ will have plenty of room to be tucked under the rail. 

Midwest Industres SP large inside diameter rail 1Midwest Industres SP large inside diameter rail 1

As you can see, M-LOK is the attachment method for these rails and there are plenty of mounting slots to choose from with M-LOK at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock as well as the 45 degree spaces in between. These are definitely worth taking a look at for anyone wanting to mount a larger muzzle device or suppressor underneath the rail. According to their Facebook page they are starting with their 12.65″ long model first and I’m sure additional lengths will follow. $165 including one Magpul rail section and the barrel nut wrench is pretty hard to beat.

Mega Arms Releases New Versions of the Wedge Lock and MKM

Posted on December 6th, 2015 by ar15news

Mega Arms has just announced the are now shipping two new products. First, they’ve now added KeyMod to their ever growing lineup of Wedge Lock hand guards. This is great to hear as, despite its popularity, not everyone is running M-LOK just yet. Second, they have also made a few tweaks to the KeyMod rail of their awesome MKM MATEN upper. Both products should be available from all major Mega Arms retailers any day. 

The KeyMod Wedge Lock hand guard is very similar to the M-LOK version they launched first and offers KeyMod slots at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock with short KeyMod slots at the 45 degree angles at the front top of the rail for light mounts, etc. These are some seriously good looking rails. For more information on the new Mega Arms KeyMod Wedge Lock hand guard go to www.MegaArms.com.

Mega Arms KeyMod Wedge Lock Handguard 1Mega Arms KeyMod Wedge Lock Handguard 1

The updated version of the MKM MATEN (.308) upper still has the KeyMod sections at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock spots but now features very nice looking cooling slots at the 45 degree angles except for at the very front top of the rail where they have short KeyMod sections. This makes for a much sleeker looking rail while retaining the ability to mount a light or laster on the forward most 45 degree angles. For more information on the updated version of the Mega Arms MKM MATEN upper go to www.MegaArms.com.
