Omega 9.0So the actual rail is awesome. It perfectly, replaced my plastic hand guards without messing eith the FSB, and boy is it light compared to many other rail options. Now the allen wrench. So, you do NOT want a ball end wrench when any real torque is involved, and certainly not on screws in an inaccessible location with set-up loc-tite applied. The ball ends can break off, and good luck getting that out of the screw in that location. I understand why they didn't include a ball end wrench, but the wrench included is a very loose fit. I'd only use it to get the screws started for fear of strippong them out. I moved to a Bondhus set which fit snugly in the hex.
Finally an Omega in M-Lok!!!Confirmed, does not come with a ball ended allen wrench. Makes it a lot harder to install. But does lock up perfectly when you eventually get the set screws secured. Just takes a lot longer to install. Nice M-Lok free float option without having to modify your rifle if you have a FSB. Usual high end Daniel Defense quality.
OMEGA RAIL® 9.0 M-LOK®Nothing wrong with hand-guard good condition. However, the allen wrench provided did not include the ball end as shown in the installation video when installing set screws. This setback made it difficult to install the setscrews.
