KDG KINECT MLOK Universal Offset QD Rail Section Now Available

    If you are a fan of the M-LOK system, you may have encountered Kinetic Development Group’s quick-detach system (“Kinect”).

    Using two spring-loaded, self-adjusting wedges, Kinect inserts into the MLOK slot of a forearm. Pressing the mount into the MLOK slot, Kinect uses automatic triggers that securely lock your accessory into the rail with a “click” and without tools. The only thing faster is how the accessory removes, which can be quickly accomplished with one hand and no tools.

    They are now offering a Universal Offset Mount.

    The new Universal Offset Mount is a small, lightweight billet aluminum mount that also uses the  Kinect and MLOK technology. The mount features three slots of Picatinny rail set at a 45° offset from it’s mounting base and will accommodate nearly every popular weapon light currently on the market. It also features a recessed Surefire mount footprint allowing the attachment of a scout light directly to the mount with two screws. The Universal Offset Mount is compatible with any rail-grabber mount for Picatinny rails. Some examples of compatible light accessories are Streamlight, Surefire, and Inforce. The rail will also accept 1” scope rings for Picatinny or Weaver, for those that prefer to use a simple handheld flashlight as a weapon mounted light.

    Has anyone used any of the other Kinect QD products? Thoughts?

    You can find the Offset Mount at their website: https://kineticdg.com/product/kinectmlok-universal-offset-mount/ where it retails for $64.99.
