Daniel Defense announced a number of new accessories last week. These include the following products:
DD KeyMod Scout Light Mount
As time moves on, more and more people – and companies – are moving away from quad-rail handguard systems. The two most popular options on the market are KeyMod and M-LOK. KeyMod is an open standard that anyone can create products for. M-LOK is a standard that is freely licensed by Magpul. Magpul’s concept is by licensing the technology for free, anyone can develop for it and consumers can be assured that the products will adhere to the specs.
For the KeyMod system, Daniel Defense developed a low-profile offset mount for the Surefire Scout Light. IT works well with thin rails such as the company’s SLiM handguard. The mount is made of 6061-T6 aluminum and is reversible for affixing to either side of the rifle. The mount is available in black.
DD SLiM Rail 9.0
Daniel Defense expanded its offerings of KeyMod handguards with the SLiM Rail 9.0 for the AR platform. As the name suggests, this is a 9″ rail. The rail is made of 6061-T6 aluminum and has two QD sling attachment points. It is available in black. Daniel Defense states the rail is compatible with low profile gas blocks and pistol, carbine and mid-length gas systems.
