What is the effect of using this as a top rail on an AR15?

This is the first time I've used this on my smith & wesson Wesson Manufacturing & Supply 15 days of sport in P sport My work took less than 10 minutes and takes up a lot less space than you might expect. It does not need to be modified. As I put on my fore grip, laser, and light combo, I felt quite safe. A comfortable position for the accessory can be achieved by adjusting the long rail.

The top of this will fit onto a Mossberg 500 to mount a red dot, right?

In order to mate the metal rail section to the Mossberg's receiver if the former has been drilled and tapped, you must order a metal rail section. A number of them are available "Mossberg 500 scope rail" can be found by searching on Google. There is a polymer rail section on this, but the screws and anchors would not fit the holes on your receiver, even if the screw holes lined up. In addition, the rail will most likely break during normal use since it will not mate properly with the receiver surface of your gun. Thank you! I hope that helped you understand!

S&W M&P 15 II - Fits Take a look at the This bottom hand guard is easily installed on my M&P bottom hand guard after I received mine today The second part of P 15
5/5

I am delighted by how well it works with my G&S I foregrip the G. However, even if I agree it is a bit pricey for a bit of plastic, I still think it is a good deal if you compare it to the cost of replacing the whole hand guard. I read a couple reviews that said this wasn't compatible with some It looks as if the holes don't line up perfectly, but there is enough overlap in the holes for bolts to pass through. In one review, it was even mentioned that it didn't work with M&M There is a photo on P 15 II. There's nothing preventing the rail section from working like it does for me--it just needs to be slid over a little more. Here are some photos I took to show that it is possible to install it on an M&M This is part II of the application.

This includes the rail to be installed on a standard Ruger AR556
5/5

Rails are added to a standard Ruger AR556 handguard. They are held steady and securely. The rail covers all the holes on the handguard, with the exception of the one closest to the receiver, which remains uncovered. It works very well like that, but it is the only way that it will line up.

A better reading of the description would have been helpful
5/5

Regardless of what I saw in the price, I threw the item in the cart without realizing I got a MOE section and not a MLOK section These styles are so different that installation is going to be a real headache. The rail arrived in just a week. I couldn't wait another week to order the right section, so with some special engineering I rigged it onto the rail. It would have been cool if I had mounted something like an AN/PEQ on it This is only holding onto a Magpul AFG. I might have done away with the rigging and got what I needed. Although I didn't know that the rail was made of polymer, I guess it doesn't matter since it's only going to be used.

You won't find trash in a Magpul rifle
5/5

As an honest person, I was concerned about the durability of this rail section due to its polymer construction This was a chance I took on it since I have yet to find a poorly made magpul product. I am very pleased with it, it feels just as solid as a steel section, but has a substantial weight savings. This is likely to be the last steel section I purchase.

It does not fit precisely on Smith & Wesson AR15s and does not come with an Allen key, but it is still very recommended
4/5

Aside from the fact it's Magpul, you can trust it'll be of good quality, and the fact it's made in the USA is a nice touch, too. There is a one-star deduction because it does not directly fit my Smith & Wesson The standard hand guard for the Wesson AR15 can be easily removed in a matter of minutes with a sharp pocket knife. Apart from the misalignment of holes, no Allen wrench was included with it. The fact that I have a bunch didn't bother me at all, but I just wanted to be aware of it. I have it attached to the bottom of my bipod (in the photo).

A horse shoe and a hand grenade (luckily, this too)
5/5

My son and I bought this to use as a flashlight Handguards are included on 15 with standard grips. I was able to fit the piece with the holes not lined up perfectly, but it was close enough to fit. In the package materials, it clearly states that the item is designed to be used with the MOE handguard, so I am not complaining.
I have seen a handful of reviews saying that the screws are too short. I removed the heat shield from the handguards, bolted the rail to the plastic shell & I am satisfied with the result. Placed the shield back in its original position. This is a perfect fit.

Initially, it was easy to install, but it became more difficult later
4/5

On my Magpul MOE handguard, this did not fit into any of the screws on the inside of the handguard (which is fairly typical for hardware that was designed to be installed on the same brand. ). Nevertheless, while I tightened the outer screw in place, I had to hold the tail in place with pliers. The 300 rounds will be run through first and repeated if there are any issues.

It is no longer possible to buy high-quality Magpul
3/5

In the past, Magpul was known for its high quality products. They have evolved into a company with such poor quality that I won't ever consider spending any more money with them. Some of these rail parts I purchased several years ago would work fine when installed, but now they are very difficult.
