Aaron from Sage Dynamics did a great overview of the new Karve handstop by Railscales. The Karve is a handstop that can be used on both M-LOK and KeyMod rails while maintaining an extremely small footprint thanks to the C O G (Common Overt Geometry) system that Railscales developed. The new Railscales Karve is available for purchase now at www.GetRailscales.com.

Over the years I have built a bunch of ARs. Some are not that special to me but others I have really grown to love and will be ones I will hand down to my kids as they grow up. Most of my rifles are pretty “Frankenstein’ish” So I wanted to start sharing a little bit about those special ARs. Nothing too in-depth. Just easy reading with some parts listed and a nice photo. 

One such rifle is one of the first ones I would probably think of when it comes to grabbing a rifle in a SHTF situation. My PWS / Seekins Precision hybrid which I’ve had for about 4 years now has morphed into a rifle I could never see myself getting rid of.

THE LOWER
The Seekins Precision SP223 billet lower receiver was the first part of this build that I owned. At first I wasn’t sure about the looks of the SP223 but it quickly grew on me and I had to have one. With the addition of a Wilson Combat TTU-3G trigger, Battle Arms BAD-CASS-SA-ST (Combat Ambi Safety Selector – Semi Auto – Short Throw) ambi safety, a Magpul MOE+ grip, Fortis QD End Plate and B5 Systems SOPMOD Bravo stock this lower feels complete.

THE UPPER
The upper I can not take as much credit for its awesomeness as I did not build it. It is a Primary Weapons Systems MK114 complete upper. The MK114 consists of a 14.5″ .223 Wylde QPQ barrel, pinned FSC556 comp, PWS Long-Stroke Piston System, PWS 13″ KeyMod rail, PWS Forged Upper and a BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle. 

I added to this upper a set of Magpul MBUS GenII backup sights, an Aimpoint PRO, RailScales KeyMod covers, a Zero Bravo Inc KeyMod RHS (Reversible Hand Stop) and a SureFire X300U with SR07 tape switch.

Why is this one of my favorites? Not only is it a pretty sexy looking rifle but it is an extremely reliable and solid rifle. I’ve put it up against some of my 18″ SPR type rifles and with exception of my .5″ group tack driver it shoots as good if not better than the rest. Its not a cheap setup by any means but it is definitely one I would grab in a heart beat and not have any reservation as to whether or not it could get the job done when called upon. 

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.

RailScales is a brand new company formed by Bill Coye of Coye Knives and Derek Shelton of Asset Weapon Mfg. I’ve been a big fan of Bill Coye and his amazing knife work for a while now and its really exciting to see him venture into the AR/AK world. RailScales are KeyMod Grip Panels made out of G10 material which is commonly used in knife handles. G10 is a lightweight material but strong and very durable at the same time. One of the things you’ll notice below is that these are not massive rail covers but just enough to add some grip to your rails. This smaller size also means the won’t interfere with other accessories you might be running on your rail at the same time. Check out the pics and details below. Look for these to be available for purchase here in the next few weeks from www.GetRailScales.com.

RailScales announces G10 KeyMod Grip Panels for the AR and AK rifle platforms.

Bill Coye of Coye Knives and Derek Shelton of Asset Weapon MFG have teamed up to bring the first G10 grip panels for the KeyMod system to market. RailScales LLC was formed from Shelton’s machinist/gunsmith background and Coye’s signature textured G10 custom knife handles. This combination produces a grip panel that is not only functional, but also looks great as well.

G10 is a fiberglass reinforced epoxy laminate that is extremely durable, grippy, lightweight and has minimal heat transfer.

“Derek and I have been mutual customers since 2009,” says Coye. “We’ve watched as each other’s company has grown and it was only a matter of time before the two of us got together on a project”.

The first offering is a four grooved black panel design reminiscent of a Coye Knives custom handle. Numerous lengths, textures, colors, and other G10 accessories are already underway as well.
