The Daniel Defense Slim Rail is the first KeyMod compatible system release by Daniel Defense. The rail is lightweight with a slim profile, but remain extremely durable. This handguard has a ton of features that will make it the perfect addition to your AR-15
The Slim Rail gives you the ability to directly attach KeyMod compatible accessories directly to the rail system. There are several advantage to the KeyMod accessory mounting system. Until the older Picatinny attachment system, KeyMod utilized a negative space mounting system. What this means is that unlike Picatinny rails, where you have to add material to the handguard, with KeyMod, you actually remove material from the handguard. This makes for a much lighter rail system. In addition to removing weight, it also allows the handguard to have a slimmer profile. Yet another benefit of the KeyMod mounting slots is that they act as cooling vents to allow greater airflow around your barrel.

This is a high strength aluminum that is aircraft grade that gives this rail excellent durability while remaining lightweight, at just 11.2 ounces. To give the aluminum construction an even greater advantage, Daniel Defense finishes the aluminum with a Mil-Spec Type III hard coat anodizing. This coating enhanced corrosion and wear resistance and also leaves a black finish. To ensure a solid lock-up with your upper receiver, Daniel Defense uses Grade-8 military-spec fasteners.
