Been trying to figure out what rail system that is for like a full 2 days lol

I think it’s a KAC

It looks like a generational variant of the Centurion CMR. It has less aggressive cuts for the top row than the current model, but it has the same lockup mechanism and hole spacing.

The URX series is identifiable by hole cut spacing. Two with a thin gap, a wider gap, then another two with a thin gap between them and a repeating pattern. While the original Knight’s M4 RAS has even spacing, the later versions and rifle length do not, and no Knight’s rail has that mounting mechanism either.

Foreign Firepower

Syrian rebel fighters armed with M16 and M4 variants. Note the Magpul UBR stock in the last photo. Although some of them look like the real thing, a few of them may be Chinese made clones; specifically the Norinco CQ. They’re distinguishable by their tubular ribbed handguard, as seen in photos 6 & 7. Interesting that they are being used over there considering the logistics problem for parts, magazines and ammo in a country dominated by AK’s and the 7.62x39 cartridge. (GRH)
