Griffin Armament Launches New, Improved Low-Profile RIGID Rails
Wisconsin’s Griffin Armament is best known for their oppressors, but that’s not all they do. We reviewed their original line of polymer furniture as well as their scope mounts. And now they have relaunched their line of RIGID rails, first introduced in 2016.
Here’s what you have to say about it:
Griffin Armament® M-LOK Compatible Low-Pro RIGID Rails have been redesigned to allow easy installation while providing a sleek, flat, ultra-light, yet rigid hand guard that previous users have loved.
The design goals for this rail were to provide a slim, ultra-light rail with increased rigidity and durability over similar market options with similar weight and profile. A custom extrusion provides significant internal reinforcement to reduce bending when the carabiner is held firmly in the shoulder bag. Aware of the importance of low-light targeting, these reinforcements provide a rigid mount for IR laser aimers that ensure minimal POI shift when torque is applied to foregrip-type accessories or when loads are placed on the rail, z. B. when shooting down barricades or when loading bipods for quick follow-up shots. Internal practical tests showed that the POI shift with laser targets was 70% less than with competing “slim rails”. Carefully positioned geometry in the rail allows rapid cooling for quick shots.
The Low-Pro RIGID rail features a heavy duty, heat treated, H900 17-4 stainless steel running nut with tight tolerance that can be easily mounted to the specified 55 ft / lbs using the included Griffin GI Armorers Wrench. The design of the slip-fit clamp is extremely user-friendly and does not require any washers or special timing methods. The clamping hub in the rear part of the rail is flat and ergonomically appealing, even for longer periods of time with prolonged wearing in static safety positions. Flathead T15 Torx screws should be tightened to 25 pounds. The included 45 degree Picatinny QD swivel mount is installed on the upper Picatinny rail at the desired position of the end user.
M-LOK slots at positions 3, 6 and 9 o’clock allow you to mount your favorite M-LOK accessories.
If you’re looking for a high quality, feature-rich, America-made rail system for your AR15 firearm, Griffin Armament® Low Pro Rigid Rails is the place for you.
