You asked and Fortis listened. Fortis initially wanted to reserve the SWITCH™ series for the 308 platform, but after hearing the requests, Fortis 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 wanted a handguard 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.
The rail design not only looks great, but is very functional in your hand. The piece adds minimal weight to the rifle and you won’t be disappointed!
