    AM Armada please.

    Wait... What's the difference between the AM and RTP rail? Just a shorter rail for a more compact setup?

    Sear.
    ASA mount style.
    AM, dovetail bottom.
    As it says above, both rails are 8" long.

    If I'm just wanting to swap out the Rail on my ULE custom, I would need the AM Armada then, correct?
    The RTP rail looks more curved towards the xvalve. Unless they both look the same?

    Pump milling is a 50% discount.
    These prices will end at the close of preorder.
    Project will complete and parts will ship within 1 week of preorder close.

    Guys, these are 8 inch rails, on the RTP rail, a slot will give you less than 1/16" travel.
    On the AM you would have less than 1/8" forward, not exactly sure what you guys are after here.

    a slot milled for the fore grip...thats all man. that lil bit of travel can actually make a UMF frame fit a AM/MM length rail with a fore grip. that was one of the first things i asked for when El Panda made tha ArMaDa V2 rail...since i really wasnt sure what frame or fore grip i would be using with tha rail.

    Can I get a pic of the other side of the RTP style? I would like to see how the sear hole looks with the milling. Thanks.

    Like I said, I can add this but I'm not changing the standard production models.

    I have a trash can asa you milled the wings off and the mounting screws had to be centered a little more than usual so it will only work with slot milling.

    Needle nose pliers work, but can damage the bushing.
    A flat tip punch, hammer and vise will do less damage.
    You really need a flat surface to lay the rail on when using the punch and hammer method because you can bend the rail other wise.
    I have found some of the older style bushings and ones that have been in the rail for years very stubborn and wont budge with pliers.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Also, I wanted to say that you guys did a great job collaborating and manufacturing these Armada rails. They turned out awesome!!!

    It may just be me, but it seems like my Mag RT's much easier now? Seems crazy easy!
