    Default KDG now adds a 417/MR762/G28 rail to the mix

    KDG Releases New HK 762 M-Lok Rail System - Soldier Systems Daily


    I'll just go ahead and say it; HK rails are either 20-years dated or pure window-licking, shortbus and the Geissele rails have only gotten sharper and uglier since they peaked at the Mk3.

    Congrats to KDG for spinning something up for the bigger frame gun that's MLok and doesn't look like ass.

    Thanks for posting AFTER I found and got myself a CIM rail (joking sarcasm implied).
    I will give the CIM a whirl and keep my eye on this development.

    ...and I just bought a SAG hand guard

    It does look nice, hopefully also lightweight.

    I have been very unimpressed by their SCAR rail.

    Also curious to hear why. I don't do SCAR stuff.


    To be fair, if there were one thing in the gun game I would not want to design it's a rifle rail. Rails in general are disappointing as the balance of strength, weight, aesthetics, feel/user interface, length, attachment interface, how it mounts to the gun, and just plain 'ol color (cause Geissele had to make a separate page just for their DDC hues) must reach an impossible nexus at a marketable price...I think it would be maddening. And then you throw in the consumer feedback on top of all that...f*** dat noise.

    Looks a lot like the RAL8000 RAHG, which personally I prefer over everything else, just for the reasons you stated.

    Thanks for posting.

    I may have to try this once my current project is completed.

    I like the idea of being able to mount a bipod all the way forward on the rail. I have a full on 14.5” HK quad rail to gain that position; it’s heavy as F¥€£!

    I’d like a lighter rail. I hope this cuts the mustard...

    Two of the heads on the screws they use popped off for me on a brand new rail. It didn't take much, very weak metal. This was just using an allen key. When I called KDG they talked to me like I was an idiot, asked if I had used a power tool. Then said the screws were not necessary and told me I should just leave them. I asked about removing them to take the rail off and they scoffed at me for not being able to do it myself. I explained that while I could remove them myself, I would rather not do that with a $3,000 aluminium receiver. Finally suggested I take the gun to a shop an hour away and they would just refund me with a $50 credit for parts I did not need/want.

    Beyond the screw issue and the general bad taste the customer service left, I just didn't feel the rail was as robust as most others are. I see them as more of a hobbiest shop offering stuff to improve esthetics. They sell an ACR stock adapter that is known to cause lots of issues but "looks better" than the factory stock.

    For the SCAR the only reason I went with them on the Scar was that they are really the only game in town. You have a lot of battle proven options on the HK417, why use a KDG?
