Great picatinny rail for projects. – Gun Rail Mount (22mm) Reviews

posted by TenRing on 04/12/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Standard aluminum MIL-STD-1913 rail. Perfect for mounting any accessories like lights, grips, sights, scopes, etc. Even comes with special round countersink nuts, which can be very useful for certain applications for mounting the rail itself, as seen in my picture above.
Cons:
Fairly rough machining. Lots of tool marks.

Poor/thin painted finish.
Other:
THE MEASUREMENTS SUPPLIED BY DX ARE WRONG.

The rail is standard picatinny dimensions, 9mm tall (without nut/bolt/mounting hardware) and 4.5" long.

I was at a sporting goods store today, and compared prices on various rails. What they had were comparable, and between $10 and $20. DX prices FTW.
Bottomline:
If you have the ability to tap a hole, you can mount one of these anywhere, or just make a countersunk hole and use the mounting hardware supplied.
