I have a newb question. What is the difference between tac-sol std picatinny rail and a 15 moa picatinny rail? They both look identical ( http://gunkings.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=71_56&products_id=56 and http://gunkings.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=71_56&products_id=588 ) Just wondering what the 15 moa means. Thanks.

its milled at an angle so you can get more adjustment out of your optic

Oh, ok I see it. So theoretically if I had a scope zero'ed at 100yards with the standard rail and swapped it with the 15moa rail, my point of impact would be 15 inches high? Would the 15moa rail be used for those who want to more elevation adjustment?

Yes 1MOA = 1" at 100 yards. YES if you need more elevation.
