DANIEL-DEFENSE AR10 Lite Rail, 12.0 (DD-3003-D)

Vendor: Daniel defense



The DANIEL-DEFENSE AR10 Lite Rail, 12.0 (DD-3003-D) is a 1-piece, free float handguard featuring an uninterrupted top rail platform, 6061-T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum construction and a Type III Hard Coat Anodized Finish.

This rail features the patented "Bolt-Up System" allowing simplified alignment to the host weapon upper receiver and providing a continuous, uninterrupted upper rail platform for weapons with flat top upper receivers. The battle proven "Bolt-Up System" is also used on the Daniel Defense RIS II (selected by SOCOM for the SOPMOD II program).

Every component of the AR10 Lite Rail has been precisely assessed, thoroughly shot and tested, improved upon, and manufactured tough enough to become the new benchmark in 7.62 rail systems. Using specifically engineered barrel nuts, the Daniel Defense AR10 Lite Rail is compatible with the Armalite AR10, Rock River Arms LAR-8, and DPMS LR-308 rifles.

Important: If you plan to use this Lite Rail on an Armalite AR10 upper receiver you may have to the replace ejection port cover hinge pin to a longer length due to the bolt up plate position in relation to Armalite's upper receiver design. Otherwise the Ejection Port Cover pin may not be captured and could come loose.

WARNING: Please ensure that you purchase the correct barrel nut for your firearm. Using the incorrect barrel nut can result in injury or death.
