    what he said goes for me too
    "Why do I use an Automag?
    Because I don't have noodle arms."

    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?

    Factory AGD rails:
    AM and RTP rails are different in thickness, the Automag is 0.555" thick. The RTP is 0.6422" thick. (mine are anyway)
    The over-all design is identical, the diffrence is due to thickness and the shape difference on the bottom of the rails.
    The AM bottom is designed for single screw ASA mount. It has a dovetail connection so the ASA will not spin when mounted.
    The early AM frames also have a dovetail top.
    The AM and RTP rails use different sears and sear pins.
    The RTP has a 2 screw mount ASA.

    I suggest you choose the rail that you can use your current sear and sear pin with.
    If you're not sure which you have, post a picture of the sear and pin, that would be easiest.

    I am interested in getting my name on for two aa/mm pump milled armada rails.

    In terms of the 8" rail, is this the traditional length for a aa/mm rail? I ask this thing about the pump milling for the armada rtp rail and pump rod requirements.

    since you already have tha rails there couldnt they all get a fore grip slot milled...that way tha fore grips can be moved forward/backwards depending on what for grip is being used as well as not having to send it back to get a slot milled later???

    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.
