New from MadBull: Daniel Defense MFR 7'' / 9" / 12"

The Daniel Defense MFR(Modular Float Rail) is a CNC Machined Modular Free Float Handguard. It is specifically designed to adequately cover a low profile gas block on a carbine or mid-length gas system barrel. The MFR has been engineered to provide each shooter with the ultimate in modular adaptability. Should the shooter desire, the tube can be run “slick” with an unitterupted top rail that runs the length of the tube. In addition, the installation of Modular Picatinny Rails is accomplished with little effort. This allows you to have rails anywhere you need them and nowhere you don’t. The slim profile feature of the MFR 12.0 keeps the shooter’s support hand close to the bore which aids in firearm manipulation, and the design and construction allow for the attachment of Picatinny Rail Sections at standard 90 degree or offset angles.

Package includes:
  • (1) MFR 12.0 Free Float Hand Guard with Mounting Hardware
  • (3) 3” Modular Picatinny Rail Sections with Mounting Hardware
  • (1) Hardened Steel Barrel Nut
  • (4) Set Screws

  • Fully licensed by Daniel Defense
  • Free floating design that enhances accuracy*
  • Black anodize (Real steel is Military level III hard coat with Teflon coating)

  • Uninterrupted Upper Rail Platform

  • Comes with 3 Mil-spec Picatinny Rails Sections

From Madbull: PRI GIII Delta 7"/9"/12.5” Rail Color:BK/OD/FDE

If you are into small arms history, you must have heard of SPR (Special Purpose Rifle.)
The SPR, used by Special Operations Forces of both the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy, is a heavily modified light sniper/designated marksman variation of the AR-15/M16 line of infantry weapons, and is chambered for NATO standard 5.56x45mm ammunition.
The first SPR adopted famous PRI Gen I and Gen II carbon-fiber free-float handguard.
One very important feature of PRI handguard is its carbon fiber main body. The carbon fiber can stop heat transfer from barrel to the handguard.

Now, MadBull is proudly introducing fully licensed PRI handguard rails to Airsoft industries.

The models we provide for Airsoft are new generation of PRI rails:
1. Gen III Round Free Float Rail in different lengths with side rail panels.
2. Gen III Delta Free Float Rail in different lengths with side rail panels.

Both models have 2 materials as option:
1. Polymer: Budget for Airsoft budget players
2. Carbon Fiber: Same material as real steel which provide authentic looking and collectable value for hardcore Airsoft players

There are more optional accessories for PRI Gen III rails:
1. SPR PEQ Top Rail for different length of handguard: The main purpose of PEQ top tail is to install PEQ box on the one-piece top rail.
2. Front sight and rear sight: You have to buy these sights from ASG who has ARMS' license and produce sights for SPR top rail.

Note: Airsoft version internal dimension is different from real steel.

-Polymer / Carbon version are available
