The 7.62 Lite Rail™ features our patented “Bolt-Up System™ ” allowing simplified alignment to the host weapon upper receiver and providing a continuous, uninterrupted upper rail platform for weapons with flat top upper receivers. The battle proven “Bolt-Up System” is also used on the Daniel Defense RIS II (selected by SOCOM for the SOPMOD II program). Every component of the 7.62 Lite Rail has been precisely assessed, thoroughly shot & tested, improved upon, and manufactured tough enough to become the new benchmark in 7.62 rail systems. Using specifically engineered barrel nuts, the Daniel Defense 7.62 Lite Rail is compatible with the Armalite AR10, Rock River Arms LAR-8, and DPMS LR-308 rifles.
Although most users do not have issues with compatibility, there have been some changes to the designs of certain .308 AR platforms. Therefore it is important to note that this rail system is designed to line up perfectly with upper receivers which have a top rail that is 1.325” from the bore’s centerline. Some .308 AR platforms have changed the height of the top rail on their upper receivers as well as the thread pattern of the barrel nut. If you are unsure of compatibility, please contact the manufacturer of your firearm and confirm rail height and barrel nut style.
If you plan to use the 7.62 Lite Rail on an Armalite AR10 upper receiver you may have to the replace ejection port cover hinge pin to a longer length due to the bolt up plate position in relation to Armalite’s upper receiver design. Otherwise the Ejection Port Cover pin may not be captured and could come loose.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU PURCHASE THE CORRECT BARREL NUT FOR YOUR FIREARM. USING THE INCORRECT BARREL NUT CAN RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH
