Griffin Armament: Low-Pro RIGID rails (Gen 2)
Griffin Armament just launched its second-generation M-LOK compatible Low-Pro RIGID rails. The company says the new rails are re-engineered to make installation more user-friendly while maintaining the original slim, low-profile, ultralight handguard features.
These new rails are also designed for increased rigidity and durability. In the manufacturing process, custom extrusion provides internal reinforcement for reduced flex when gripping the carbine firmly in the shoulder pocket.
Here’s how Griffin explains it:
Understanding the importance of low light targeting, these reinforcements provide rigid mounting for IR laser aimers ensuring minimal POI shift when torque is applied to fore-grip type accessories, or when loads are applied to the rail such as practical shooting off barricades or when loading bipods for rapid follow up shots. Internal practical testing showed 70% less POI shift with laser aimers versus competing “slim rails”. Carefully positioned geometry in the rail allow for rapid cooling when shooting rapidly.
The slip fit clamp design is extremely user-friendly and doesn’t require any shims or special timing methods. The clamp boss in the rear section of the rail is low profile and ergonomically pleasing even for long durations of extended carry at static security positions. Flat head T15 Torx screws should be tightened to 25/in pounds.
Griffin Armament is offering these rails in four lengths: 8.6″, 10.5″, 13.5″, and 15″.
