Earlier this year we posted pictures of the new rails for the AK-47 from Troy Industries, well now they’re finally available. Known for their high-quality rails for the AR-15, this is their first for the AK-47 variant rifles. The Troy Battlerails for the AK-47 are machined from hardened aircraft aluminum and feature a MIL-SPEC hardcoat anodizing finish and stainless steel fasteners. Just like with their AR-15 offerings, the Troy Battlerails are lightweight and feature a small diameter grip. They’re also modular allowing the user to customize where they want to mount lights, grips or lasers. The new AK rails are available in two sizes, Short and Long. The Short version actually extends 4 inches past the standard AK hand guards while the Long Battlerail extends a full 7 inches past the standard hand guards. The Long version also has 3 inches of Picatinny rail space on top.
Along with the new AK-47 Battlerails Troy has also released a replacement Railed Gas Tube that fits all stamped and milled receiver AK rifles that use a standard length gas tube, however it’s also adjustable for variation between different AK manufacturers. The gas tube features 5 inches of Picatinny rail space for optics or accessories and provides a lower 1/3 co-witness depending on optics. The Troy Railed Gas Tube can also be used alone with factory hand guards in case you wanted to keep some of the classic wood look.
The Troy Long Battlerail retails for $139.95, the Short retails for $124.95 and the Railed Gas Tube retails for $149.95. Check them out at Troyind.com.
