It’s time to put your quad rail back in the fight – or probably just back in the hunt with the new Strike Picatinny to ARCA adapter. This handy inexpensive adapter quickly, easily, and reversibly takes your standard Picatinny rail section and adapts it to interface with the standard ARCA Swiss quick-release system commonly found on tripods. Tripod shooting is not only quite popular these days for precision shooting sports, but for some people, it also happens to be a much more comfortable position to shoot from.

    Goes great with that forced reset trigger you've been hiding in your junk drawer

    Arca rail adapters for pic rails and Mlok have been around quite awhile no? Are we celebrating that Strike Industries caught up? I'm a fan of SI in general but this seems more like a "hey guys, we're late but here we are" announcement. Also, a pic to arca adapter really should be QD, if you add or remove something and change the balance point it's nice to be able to quickly change it or a long thin rail that allows you to move the gun back and forth at will.
