For fans of the AR-15 rifle, one of the platform's biggest strengths is the modularity. Want to change your pistol grip? One turn of a screwdriver (or allen wrench) and a captured spring and you can put on a dizzying variety of grips. Want a different buttstock? For the collapsible stock, it's as simple as pulling a pin, removing the old stock and sliding on the new stock.
The fore-end is another area that sees customization. Typically it's to add a light, laser or combination device, but also sling swivels, foregrips and other add-ons can be attached at the fore-end. For the standard carbine with A2 front sight and D-ring, changing the handguard is as simple as pulling the D-ring toward the receiver and removing the handguard halves. Myriad options, from KeyMod to M-LOK and everything in between, allow accessories to be added.
Mission First Tactical's Tekko rail attaches to your AR-15 without screws and offers quad-rail functionality. The top rail is continuous with your flattop receiver, and the three-, six- and nine-o'clock positions have 12-slot Picatinny rails for any and all accessories. Four QD mounting points, two on each side, one fore and one aft, allow attachment of a sling with ease.
