Otis, a well known manufacturer and military supplier of cleaning kits, has entered the AR-15 accessory market.

Otis handguard.

The Otis TRS rail system was developed after the company made a few go/no-go gauges for testing picatinny rails. They found that few rails were actually within spec.

The TRS will retail for $260.

    I'm sure the next thing they'll be releasing is a piston-operated AR. It will differentiate itself by being self-cleaning. :D

    So, they built a gage and then declared everyone else's rails wrong and their's right by virtue of the same gage?
