Fortis Mfg SWITCH 5.56 Handrails – KeyMod


Fortis Mfg initially wanted to reserve the SWITCH™ series for the 308 platform, but after hearing the requests, Fortis Mfg designed it for your AR15.  The Fortis SWITCH™ is an extremely lightweight, yet robust free float rail system designed for the 5.56MM platform.  When designing the SWITCH™, Fortis Mfg wanted a handrail that was easy to install, but also be able to quickly change rails for a variety of mission or competition specific setups.  The rail features a brand new patent pending locking mechanism that allows tool-less removal of the rail.

The rail features keymod slots, QD attachments point as well as a full picatinny rail on top.
