Strike Industries recently released their new Hayl Rail MLOK Handguards for the popular Benelli M4 semi-auto shotgun. Originally debuted earlier this year at the 2018 SHOT Show, the new Hayl Rail is made out of 6061 Aluminum and weights in at 6.6 oz. As the name suggests the Hayl Rail features MLOK slots along the side and bottom of the handguard for mounting tactical lights, foregrips, and other accessories.
I think the Hayl Rail looks pretty cool. If you don’t need the style points or the ability to mount a foregrip but you do want to mount a weapon light there certainly are other options out there for the Benelli M4. Some of them are pricey like the AVA Tactical Benelli M4 Mounting System, while others are way more budget-friendly like the GG&G Benelli M4 Sling And Flashlight Mount.
The new Hayl Rail Is available in black, flat dark earth and red. The black version has an MSRP of $124.95 while the FDE and red versions will MSRP or a bit more at $129.95. Check them out over at strikeindustries.com.
No word on if Strike Industries is working on a Hayl Rail for other shotgun models, but I think the Mossberg 930 would be a nice candidate for one.
The Benelli M4 is the gold standard of autoloading combat shotguns. Although rugged, reliable, and popular the world over with military, law enforcement and civilian personnel, the M4 has seen very little in the way of innovation and upgrades since its introduction in 1999. Strike Industries updates the platform with the industry first MLOK handguard to take advantage of the latest in tactical lights and accessories to enhance the functionality and ergonomics of the legendary weapon system.
