M-Lok or KeyMod? Who Cares? Strike Industries Has a Solution…

Strike Industries is about to release a product that makes the accessory mount “war” a moot point:

It is a dual interface design that will work with either M-Lok or KeyMod.  This is just a rail segment, but presumably can be adapted to any accessory. Again, I appreciate Strike’s innovation in the industry, and I think this is a good direction to go.  Pretty obvious solution when you think about it…

They are not yet released, and I couldn’t find any pricing information, but I am definitely going to be on the lookout.

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    Looks like a knock off of Impact Weapon Components’ KML mount.

      It’s totally different, no extra parts, no flipping the nut direct mount, easy on easy off.

        Just noticed you actually posted here.

        Who owns your company, how are you capitalized? LLC, private or public? Subsidiary of someone larger?

        Your system certainly looks simpler & easier. I just commented the other day on how SI is constantly releasing clever new products.

        On a side note, I wonder what the effect will be of these dual-compatible mounts, on the market for the rails themselves. It basically reduces the choice of rails to pure personal preference.

    The guys running this company are really creating some innovative and affordable stuff. Good for them.

    Does anyone know who owns or runs this company?

    I’ll have to see it in actual action, but it does look genius.

    I’ve been eyeing Keymod/m-lok forearms because most of the pic rail on my AR is completely pointless (I need a bit on the top-rear for my scope, a bit on the bottom for a bipod), but I’ve been holding off seeing what comes out for which and if one or the other looks to be getting better support.

    This might take some of the worry out of the decision.

  • Tom you won’t have to wait long!

  • ItalianAmerican

    I have both systems rails and I thought it was ridiculous that the market had both. This is what was needed, can’t wait to check it out.

  • Otm Shooter

    Very interesting. Magpul perhaps will not like this.
    Where is Strike Industries stuff made? Could not find anything on the website.

  • DGR

    In a world polluted by bad gun ideas, this is a welcome breath of fresh air! Finally, something you could actually call innovative. Its not completely revolutionary or anything, just just a good common sense/down to earth product that has some serious potential. Cant wait to see these for sale!

  • Treiz

    Well this completely misses the point.

    There’s a reason I stop by and see these guys every year at SHOT, they never fail to have something new that makes me want to throw money at them…
