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.
Our 13" AX HR1 is a direct replacement for the OEM AX308 (Short action) Handguard. The 13" length is super lightweight yet offers a longer bipod reach than a standard rifle stock.
Our 16" AX HR1 replaces the AXMC (Long Action AX Rifle) handguard yet it's lighter and more functional. This 16" version is compatible with the AX308 (Short Action Rifle) for those who want a longer bipod stance.
Our AX HR1 Chassis version comes in 15" and is longer than the standard OEM handguard to give you rock steady balance and a little more 'rail estate' to run your bipod and NV.
It's almost like cheating! The full length RRS spec Dovetail Rail is compatible with all "Arca-style" Dovetail tripods, bipods and clamps. Never miss another shot.
Attach MLOK® compatible accessories like picatinny rails, sling mounts, illuminators and grip panels.
Shooting off of tires, barrels or barricades is no problem, the bipod can slide along the rail to the exact position needed to make the shot count.
Yes. It will fit perfectly, many people want the longer handguard length for a more stable prone position with the extended bipod reach.
You never want anything touching you barrel so our MLOK® accessories have shortened screws that allow clearance with even heavy barrels. Please note if you use some MLOK® accessories you may need to remove your handguard before removing your barrel. The Maxim Picatinny rails we offer here will not inhibit barrel removal.
Our AXHR1 Handguard is designed to fit the current two screw attachment, post-2014 models. If you aren't sure shoot us an email with pictures.
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.
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.
