Overview of Daniel Defense AR-15 Railed Hand Guard Systems

Daniel Defense SLiM Series AR-15 KeyMod Hand Guards

The acronym SLiM stands for Slim, Lightweight and Modular, which is a perfect description of this new rail system from Daniel Defense.  This new rail marks the first KeyMod compatible rail system from Daniel Defense.  The new KeyMod accessory mounting system allows for significant weight savings.  The 15” version of the SLiM rail is listed as weighing just 11.2 ounces as compared to the 15” AR15 Lite Rail III, which weighs in at 15.2 ounces.  The KeyMod attachment system is a great improvement on the traditional Picatinny mounting system.  You can read more about the KeyMod system on our Blog.  The SLiM rail also has the new Bolt-Up System from Daniel Defense.  This system allows you to mount this rail to your AR-15 so that you have a free floating rail, allowing you to exploit the maximum accuracy out of your rifle.  Also, this mount allows you to have a continuous, monolithic style upper rail that continues from the Picatinny rail on your flat top receiver.  This rail system has ambidextrous QD sling attachment points at the rear portion of the rail at the 1 & 11 o’clock positions.  The SliM rail from Daniel Defense is machined out of aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum and finished with a mil-spec type III hard coat anodizing.

Daniel Defense AR-15 Lite Rail III

As the name implies, the Lite Rail III represents the third generation of Daniel Defense’s Lite Rail Series.  As you would expect, as Daniel Defense continues to learn and growth, they will continue to improve the quality and functionality of their products to meet high customer expectations.  With this third generation rail system, Daniel Defense has increased functionality, improved ergonomics & aesthetics, increased structural integrity and made installation easier.  This Lite Rail II uses the new Bolt-Up Mounting system, engineered by Daniel Defense.  This mounting system incorporates a one-piece design, as opposed to the welded, 2-piece design seen in the first generation rail. This new system also only necessitates the use of 4 bolts, as opposed to the previous generations 6 bolts.  To increase functionality, Daniel Defense has integrated QD sling cups into the rail system. On both the 3 and 9 o’clock rails in both the forward and rear position, you will find these QD sling cups that are equally accommodating to both left and right handed shooters.  These QD sling cups are anti-rotation sockets, which will prevent your sling from unnecessary twisting and tangling.

Daniel Defense Omega Drop-In Rail System

When Daniel Defense released the Omega AR-15 rail system, it got some serious attention from the military and law enforcement communities.  The Omega rail has a lot to offer that has never been seen before in an AR-15 hand guard system.  The main draw for the Omega rail is that it is easily user install and requires no permanent alteration to the host weapon.  However, the real feature that sets this Picatinny railed hand guard apart from others is that it is free floating, allow you to maximize the accuracy potential out of your AR-15 rifle. In addition to this, as with other DD rails, the top section of the hand guard provides a continuous rail from the receiver to the front of the hand guard.  The Omega rail is available in multiple lengths (carbine, mid and rifle length) to fit your individual needs.  The Omega AR-15 rail utilizes an oval like design to give you a feel similar to the traditional plastic hand guards.  Made in the USA with 6061 aircraft grade aluminum and put together with grade 8 hardware, this rail is ready to give you years of reliable service.
