Why is a Dovetail rail useful for precision rifle?

Often mis-referenced as the "Arca-Swiss Rail"  the 1.5" Dovetail Rail is feature carried over from the commercial photography world. Arca-Swiss was the first company to develop the wide clamping rail that could accommodate the larger format camera to safely secure them on top of a tripod. The Dovetail Rail in conjuction with a tripod or bipod is useful for precision rifles shooting because it offers maximum stability and flexibility in a shooting platform. No other shooting platform is as stable and fast as the Dovetail rail.

HAMMER RAIL FAQs / PLEASE READ

AX Hammer Rail HR1 for Accuracy International AX Rifle System

Can I put a 16" HR1 on my short action AX Rifle?

Yes. It will fit perfectly, many people want the longer handguard length for a more stable prone position with the extended bipod reach.

Can MLOK® accessory screws touch the barrel?

Yes this is possible, so this is why our MLOK® accessories have shortened screws that allow clearance with even heavy barrels. Please note if you use MLOK® accessories you may need to remove your handguard before removing your barrel. 

Is there a Hammer Rail for the AX Chassis?

Yes, we offer a 15.5" HR1 for the AX Chassis. It's the perfect intermediate length to cover all your needs. Check in the BUY section for the AXC HR1 15.5" Handguard.

Why is there a little slot cut into the HR1 by the receiver?

That little slot is a window to visually confirm that your barrel has been seated all the way into the receiver when you change it. ALWAYS LOOK AND CONFIRM THIS WHEN CHANGING YOUR BARREL.

What do I do with my OEM AI Handguard?

When you receive your AX HR1 it arrives in a beautiful black canvas bag to protect it. Upon installation of your new AX HR1, please place the old OEM AI Handguard in there for safe keeping years to come.
