Hodge Defense Systems 7075-T6 Wedge Lock Rail Handguards - 13.625 Inch
Designed and built in conjunction with Mega Arms, the Hodge Defense 13.625" "Wedge Lock" rail system was purpose built for use with government 14.5" barrel and issued suppressors. Top tier units were looking for a better carbine and Jim Hodge answered that call. With the AU-MOD2, the Wedge Lock rail is now available for public release and it features one of the strongest and most svelte locking systems on the market for free float handguards.
Through the use of superior design and materials, this rail is extremely strong, slick, and lightweight. The main rail body is a unibody 7075-T6 extrusion which is inherently strong with no stress accumulating edges. It is precision fit onto a lightweight and strong titanium barrel nut, and locked into place by two massive, melonited, steel wedges.
It's not just the superior locking system, Mega Arms has some of the best anodizing in the business. Their black, Type III HardCoat anodizing comes out true black (rather than a dull, dark grey) and has a deep, satiny lustre; and their anodizing doesn't have brittle edges that is sometimes seen on other companies picatinny rails (sometimes caused by too much heat or electric current in the anodization process.)
The optional internal anti-rotation pin is compatible with upper receivers using the same system (Hodge, Noveske, EraThr3 and others) and there are also two optional anti-rotation set screws which further lock the rail in place. The Hodge Defense Wedge Lock rail system is an excellent choice for professional end users and civilian enthusiasts alike.
Featuring M-LOK slots along the length of the rail at three, six, and nine o'clock as well as one slot on the fore end of th rail at one and eleven o'clock positions. The Hodge Wedge Lock rail features circular cooling vents (compared to the rectangles on the Mega version) and features the Hodge rollmark and trademark four-leaf clover. While the Mega Wedge Lock rail saves on weight slightly, the Hodge rail prioritizes rigidity and strength.
