The REV Free Float Rail System from Fortis truly lives up to this manufacturer's reputation for the highest quality. This piece is built from aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum for the greatest durability with simultaneous weight savings.
The entire system is given a coating of Mil-Spec Type-III anodizing to shut down corrosion before it ever starts. You can place sights or optics anywhere you want on the top Picatinny rail, which spans the entire length of the piece. The inclusion of KeyMod holes at the three and nine o'clock positions increases your range of options for accessory placement without adding extra weight. Anti-rotation tabs prevent it from coming loose once it is installed on your AR-15.
Great mid-priced Slim Rail

When I did my AR build I made the mistake of buying a cheap slim free float rail. I looked at a variety of replacements and end up choosing the REV 1 from Fortis. 1) This product is very well machined and will stand up well to long term use. 2) This rail includes anti-rotation tabs which are important mechanisms to keep the rail from rotating. 3) When I called Fortis to get feedback on the install the owner of the company called. They will stand behind their products. A couple of suggestions - 1) very open design - you are going to feel some heat if rapid firing. Of course you can put polymer covers on the HG if you wish; 2) you can easily see the barrel and gas tube. If you want an all-black look suggest you get a QPD barrel, gas tube block and gas tube. 3) There are some videos suggesting you need to buy a torque wrench to install - you don't. Hand tight. 4) After shooting my AR the first time I did get some loosening of the mounting screws - but frankly I didn't tighten them down as much as I should have. The Fortis owners says about 5% of his customers use blue threadlocker. I used this and have had no problems.
