Last month we told you guys about the brand new RUC Mod 2 which is an absolutely awesome new rifle from Rainier Arms. This rifle features a bunch of new products including a brand new Rainier Arms FORCE free floating KeyMod rail. Everyone, including me, has been asking when RA will sell these separately so they can upgrade the rifles they already have.
Well, I just received an email that the FORCE is now available for purchase. They currently have 9″ and 12″ models available. The FORCE rail mounts to a really robust barrel nut using 8 screws that screw right into the barrel nut. It also has anti-rotation tabs as well. I’m not sure if they will sell the 15″ version separately but will let you know if I find out. Details listed below.
The Rainier Arms Force™ rail is our latest free float hand guard system. As the name suggest, it was designed with strength and the ability to control your rifle without compromise. Our main focus was to keep it lightweight and durable while keeping the price affordable for our customers. We aligned the 3,6, and 9 positions to accept keymod accessories and to accommodate anti-rotation QD points. These hand guards offer the perfect upgrade for 3 gun shooters, LE/Military and weekend enthusiasts alike.
- Material: 6061 T6
- Finish: Type III Hard Coat Anodized
- 1913 Continuous top rail
- Dual anti rotation tabs
- Keymod Modular attachment system
- Length: 9″ or 12″
- Weight: 9″ = 7.8oz with barrel nut, 12″ = 10.1oz with barrel nut
- Proprietary barrel nut included
- Armorer’s wrench needed for installation (not included)
I really like the look of this new rail. The whole KeyMod system as a whole has really taken a hold in the firearms industry and is here to stay so you can expect to continue to see more and more KeyMod accessories available as well. At just $155 for the 9″ and $185 for the 12″ this is a fantastic deal for a high quality rail. If you’re in the market for a new KeyMod rail, snag one of these babies before they’re all gone. www.RainierArms.com
