Troy Industries with their AK47 rail system brings wave of fresh air into the AK world. Their rail design clearly separates Troy from the crowded “AK Rails” market. However, more conservative AK users will probably find this design way too extreme. Personally I like it a lot, because their rail offers fantastic ergonomics and it really helps to better control rifle. At this point Troy makes 2 different lower parts (short and long) and has 1 extra railed gas tube part as well. All these are independent from each other and you don’t need top part to use lower part and vice versa. Now, when lower part is rock solid, we did encounter some problems with railed gas tube replacement. Mounting for it is based on small size castle nut and we had a hard time to keep that nut from untwisting. I’m looking now for dedicated wrench for it (it is different size than traditional castle nuts) and we will go back to this issue again in future episodes. Overall, Troy made a darn solid product and i’m very pleased with it. Please note that this rail will not mount on AKs with 24mm front end!
Top Rail (railed gas tube): 5.68oz (161 grams)
Lower Rail Full Length: 10.98oz (311.27 grams)
Short Rail: 8.80oz (249.47 grams)
