Daniel Defense has unveiled the EZ CAR Rail 9.0, a replacement option for handguards on AR's with mid-length gas systems.
The EZ CAR Rail has built a reputation as a rock solid platform that installs easily with no special tools or modifications to the rifle. Its two-piece, non-free float design mounts to a standard delta ring and handguard cap of a mid-length gas system with no modifications to the host weapon. And like the EZ CARRail 7.0, its overall width is just enough to accommodate most AR-15 accessories. In addition, it's unique in the sense that it's compatible with round or triangular handguard caps.
The EZ CAR 9.0 is precision machined from Aerospace Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum, and finished with Military Specification Type III Hardcoat Anodizing. The EZ CAR 9.0 is 9.2 inches in length, 2.4 inches wide, has an inner diameter of 1.38 inches, and weighs in at just 12.4 ounces. Ounces quickly add up to pounds, so Daniel Defense strives to keep weight to a minimum.
Daniel Defense believes this move will create yet more opportunity for enhancement to AR15's with factory installed plastic handguards. "In this case, it's not about developing a brand new design. Expanding on an existing product to complement a mid-length gas system just made sense," says Jordan Hunter, Director of Marketing for Daniel Defense. Backed by a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee, the EZ CAR 9.0 is a great alternative.
