Not content to be called “cheap (insert choice east-asian country here) sh*t” UTG, has been rapidly expanding its USA based manufacturing capabilities. Products manufactured in their US facility have picked up the “Pro” moniker.
The latest additions to the “Pro” line (after their stock) include top picatinny rails for the three of the most popular firearms platforms, the Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun, Remington 870 pump (& 1100 semi-auto), and Ruger 10/22 rimfire rifle.
Each rail is tailored to the specific platform. The Reminton oriented rail starts with a 6.1″ 14-slot mount, “precision machined from aircraft aluminum.” The sight reduces weight with an integral center-cut allowing the use of iron sights or even standard bead systems.
The Mossberg fits roughly the same mold, albeit slightly shorter. The Mossberg rail clocks in at 5.5″ with 13 slots. The bottom surface of the rail is contoured to match the receiver giving it a “very integral look” (but does not come with side-saddle mount).
Finally, the 10/22 is the shortest of the bunch. At roughly 4.5″, it comes complete with 11 rails and similar contouring to its Mossberg cousin. All rails are anodized blank.
All the rails come with all mounting hardware, but note each is meant for pre-drilled and tapped receivers. Those with older receivers will still need to consult a gunsmith to ensure the rails can be mounted permanently.
