Fortis Manufacturing has released the first of their new SWITCH rail systems. In a similar vein to DRD Tactical’s quick-rail systems, the SWITCH uses a clamp and proprietary barrel nut to allow the user to quickly don and d’off the rail.
Description courtesy of Rainer Arms, which has the first batch now available for sale. The 14.75″ version is priced at $254 before coupons or shipping.
Fortis MFG’s quick detach rail system SWITCH™ features a brand new mechanism that allows a tool-less removal of the rail itself for easy access to the proprietary barrel nut and gas block, and what we believe is most important, is to be able to quickly change rails for a variety of mission or competition specific setups.
These .308 versions weighs in at a mere 8.7oz for the 12” model and 10oz for the 14”. Each model will feature Keymod Slots and QD Attachment Points at the 3, 6 and 9 O’clock position as well as a full length Picatinny Rail on top.
Fortis MFG has done it again with the SWITCH™, a revolutionary design that not only looks great and feels phenomenal in hand, but is incredibly functional and adds minimal weight to the rifle – this is truly an exciting new piece of kit.
