Midwest Industries, Inc. is getting ready to release a quad-rail extension for the FN SCAR rifle. The rail is made of 6061 aluminum and uses MIL-STD 1913 rails. It will be available in both black and flat dark earth.
The extension adds eight ounces to the overall weight of the rifle, but gives the shooter six more inches of bottom rail, plus additional rail space on both sides and on top of the barrel. The top rail is cut so the front sight on a SCAR can still fold down.
The rail can be removed with the barrel assembly and does not interfere with cleaning, including the removal of the gas piston.
The rail extension adds two (one to each side) quick-detach sockets for slings with push button swivels.
The rail extension is made in the United States and comes with a lifetime warranty. An introductory price is set at $199.95.
