Thread: Aluminum Light-Weight RT Pro Rail Options?

    Aluminum Light-Weight RT Pro Rail Options?

    Hello, are there any options for a light weight version of the RT Pro rail?

    Something drilled for the front aluminum shroud and the rear site rail but also possibly made out of aluminum with additional (extra) material removed to lighten it up? I do like the full size length as i prefer at least a small gap between the foregrip and the trigger frame (I like longer markers like the Lv1 or Luxe etc).

    I am going to be looking at using the XMagTerror ULE RT body w/possibly Nummech trigger frame and was looking at my rail options. I really like the original RT pro styling but am always looking to lighten her up any way possible and the factory rail seems a big on the chubby side! I know the shroud and rail isnt helping the weight savings but Id prefer to lose some weight on the body and rail than to ditch the original RT styling.

    Thanks in advance. I have seen a few custom rails floating around but haven't stumbled across anything production yet.

    There maybe someone who can ULE mill a rt pro rail for you. If nothing pops up here check the air smiths section of mcarterbrown. I have gotten exemplary work from Ken at KPCS. I think Luke Customs used to do custom ULE milling on rails, Luke is good about answering PMs and emails, I would probably ask him first.

    Luke used to offer those services, but if you look at this website it is no longer listed as an option.

    Thanks, I actually found a ULE milled RT rail but not sure what it should be priced at. Seller is asking $100. I know the rails can be had for $20-40 on average but unsure what the time required for milling generally is and/or cost for that kind of work. I will shoot Luke an email and see if he offers anything still. I see he has some beautiful rails available on his site just not sure if they could be made to work for my build. More to research that's for sure!

    Does anyone know if an ULE RT body will work with an emag rail on a nummech double trigger frame while utilizing the front RT pro foregrip/handle and rear site rail?

    The emag rail will be drilled/tapped for front shroud + ULE milled
    The rest is stock as described

    Thanks

    Awesome thank you! Just wanted to confirm before spending the $ on ULE milling of the rail + having it drilled/tapped for the foregrip piece.

    ULE RT is a good choice.
