Lightweight, Versatile & Easy To Install Rail Systems Maximize Accessory Mounting Options
Free-float handguard with four MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rails installs in minutes with no permanent modifications to weapon. Two-piece design allows installation using basic tools and the included hex key. Tighten the four Allen-head screws against the barrel nut with the hex key to eliminate movement and align the extended top rail with the receiver rail for an exceptionally long expanse of uninterrupted accessory mounting space. Plenty of ventilation cuts keep barrel cool and minimize weight—perfect for tactical rifles where every ounce saved improves speed and maneuverability. Rail slots are indexed with white letters and numbers for precise positioning and remounting of accessories. Receptacles for push-button QD sling swivels in the side rails have built-in rotation limiters. Precision machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and mil-spec Type 3 hardcoat anodized for added strength and a rock-hard surface that resists wear and scuffing. The standard Omega Rail clamps directly to factory barrel nut; remove it and reinstall factory handguard any time. 7.0 fits rifles with carbine-length gas sytems. 12.0 fits AR-15s with rifle-length gas systems. All models come with Santoprene rubber rail covers to provide a more comfortable, secure grip and protect the machined surfaces from damage. Rail covers resist temperatures up to 350º F.
NOTE: The 100-004-496 is an Omega X Rail 12.0 FSP with cutout for the Front Sight Post (FSP) of a Carbine length gas system, and requires the Daniel Defense Omega X/Modular Float Rail Barrel Nut Wrench for installation, which Brownells doesn't carry.
