Daniel Defense Omega Rail 12.0

Daniel Defense Omega Rail 12.0 for rifle length piston gas systems

The Daniel Defense Omega Rail 12.0 is a free-floating quad rail system for rifle length piston gas systems with the standard front sight base. The rail is precision engineered from 6061 T-6 aluminum, Type III hard anodized to match the finish of most AR15 receivers. It is designed with additional clearance for the gas piston and a removable top rail to enable access for inspection and maintenance. No permanent modifications to the weapon are necessary and the AR piston rail can be installed in minutes.


You can install the Omega AR rifle rail without removing the gas block employing a flat head-screwdriver and hex key (included). Four Allen-head screws tighten against the barrel nut to lock the rail rock solidly. The Daniel Defense Omega Rail combines with the flat-top of the rifle to provide a great deal of space for flexibility in the mounting of optics.  The combination of four rails gives you the option of mounting fore-grips, bipods, lasers etc. The rail slots are marked alphanumerically to enable replacement of optics without loss of zero. There are plenty of ventilation cuts on the Omega quad rail to keep the weight down and keep the barrel and piston assembly cool. The Omega Rail 12.0 has receptacles for push-button QD sling swivels with built-in rotation limiters. The Omega rail is approximately 113⁄4″ (29.9cm) long. Top Rail – 123⁄8″ (31.4cm) long and the whole assembly weighs 13.6 oz. (386g). All fixings, Allen wrench and instructions are included. This rail is also available in 7.0 carbine and 9.0 mid length versions.
