The battle between MLOK and keymod continues apace. Keymod was first out of the blocks to offer a really solid modular attachment system, but Magpul’s MLOK system is gaining ground due to the ease of manufacturing and Magpul’s undeniable special sauce. The problem for consumers is that the systems force you to choose — you can either stock up on MLOK or keymod rail sections, but they aren’t cross compatible. Strike Industries is looking to change that with their new rail sections, which interface just as easily with both keymod and MLOK. Buy once, run everywhere? We’ll see — we have some sections inbound for testing.
They are also launching two new rail kits, one in keymod and one in MLOK, that are designed to be slim and sleek as well as offering some nifty extras like a built-in flip up front sight and 7 available lengths. The internal diameter is going to be 1.51 inches, which should be just big enough to slot a silencer inside for those looking to make an integral-ish suppressed rifle. Which should be sweet.
