1. Will a standard barrel nut work?

No. Please use the barrel nut provided for installation.

2. Will the Noveske KX3 fit underneath the handguard? Will a suppressor fit?

The Noveske KX3 does fit nicely underneath the Freedom Rail. Unfortunately, a suppressor will not.

3. Do you make a Freedom Rail that is compatible with .308?

We do not current have a .308 compatible Freedom Rail available; however, our Research and Development team is exploring this area.

4. I want to know how much barrel will be protruding from the handguard. How do I measure this?

If you visit the “specifications” tab it lists the handguard length. This measurement is taken from the barrel extension flange to the end of the handguard. You must first know the barrel length from the back of the barrel extension flange forward to determine the amount of handguard that will cover your barrel. *All measurements are nominal and subject to change*

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    Been waiting for this rail for 2 years, and it’s finally here! Absolutely love this thing! Compliments my Vltor rifle perfectly! Nice and thin diameter! The pictures make it appear thicker, but it is the perfect size! Well done Vltor!

    As always Vltor delivered a fantastic product. Fell in love with the Noveske NSR for the slim profile and weight, but proper timing and torque took a bit of time. The alignment wings used on the new Vltor rail system were awesome in conjunction with the new barrel nut, and with a qd optic mount it made aligning the system fast and very user friendly. Used on a Vltor mur-1 upper and couldn’t be happier. For anything 200$ Or under, this system cannot be beat. Will be using these in the future on all mur-1 upper builds.

    This rail is easily one of the most delicious objects that I have ever put my hands on. While this rail isn’t quite as light as the BCM KMR, the VLTOR FreedomRail is solid and has no flex. It was amazingly simple to install, even after having installed other rails on other rifles. There isn’t a single thing wrong with this rail. It’s solid gold. If you’re looking at this, and debating about whether or not to pull the trigger, stop thinking and do it. If the ‘Add to Cart’ button is lit, click it. Get it now before I get my next paycheck, or I’ll beat you to it.
