View Full Version : 2012 Noveske's New Rail

AAC is showing off a rifle featuring Noveske's new rail design. It's got a continuous top rail and will come with rail sections to attach wherever the user chooses. The key feature Mike Mers from AAC turned me on to was that each hole along the rail will accept a QD swivel, thereby getting the swivel closer to the weapon for a lower profile.

I've got very little detailed information on this rail, but I'm sure Stickman will be providing more details and better photos in the near future, so stay tuned. Consider this a "sneak peak"...

The lower profile QD holes are a great idea!

This entire set up was very nice. It was hard to hand it back after I took some photos of it. ;-)

There was a lot of thought put into it as a system with accessories. We plan to make:
User installed heat shield
Panels that attach directly
Panel section with built in handstop
Rail sections that attach without fighting backing plates

I think the biggest thing for people to remember is that this is more than just a rail, its a complete rail system.

One thing I haven't been able to understand yet, does one need to remove the handguard in order to install the accessories?

The nut and screw stay in the accessory permanently. The nut fits through the larger opening and then slides forward where it can be tightened in place. No more fighting with the backing plates or removing the handguard to make it easier to install accessories.

Thank you.

That's exactly what I was looking for in a rail.

Do these attach through a proprietary barrel nut?

Oooo.... And can we buy a $250 wrench for it???

Just when I thought I couldn't want a Noveske anymore than I already did...........

The barrel nut is similar to the one we currently use. It is over 2" long and gives much more support to the handguard than a short barrel nut does.

It will use a standard wrench, 1 1/16" I believe.

Very nice...

This rail system is a huge leap forward in design and functionality. What lengths will it be offered in?

I really like the conformal cover idea!

I'm excited about this, and I know gloves or covers would solve it, but I have to ask: are the keyholes like cheese graters on your hands when shooting it bare? It just looks like it would be...

Not at all from my expereinces, though everything I've been doing so far is dryfire drills and basic clearing exercises.

I can see myself running the 11 on a midlength gun someday. I wonder if it will clear a shaved FSB or a specific low profile gas block pinned in place. Either way, I want one.

I think it will do fine with either.

There are no sharp edges, it's all cleaned up in the machining.

I love this. I am seeing visions of another collaboration with Vltor........ "KeyMod VIS" anyone?....[adore]

I should have guessed as much from you guys, thanks Todd. :)

Great looking rail! I really like the design and attachment methods plus the flat bottomed tube is a great touch. Look forward to seeing this hit the market.

Will standard uppers, such as my bcm, be able to be drilled to accept the anti-rotation pin?

Anything can be drilled, but it's probably not worth it to try to get it centered correctly unless you know what you are doing.

I love everything Noveske, but on sheer cosmetics alone, I'm not crazy about the profile and how it looks mated to the upper. It just looks a bit off to me. Mabye it's just the angles in the pics.

Does the upper NEED to be drilled? I'm not keen in sending my upper off for machining as another out of pocket expense.

No, the pin is not needed for normal installation. "Anti rotation" only exists because of improperly installed handguards. If the barrel nut or handguard screws are loose there is a bigger problem with the assembly than a tab or pin can fix.

It is a feature some people want, and we will probably sell uppers with the pin hole for those that do want it.
