Who has this rail? I was too late to get one :(

I hate arriving late to the party and missing the good stuff!

I want this rail so bad. I just hate that you need a $250 tool to put it on, and I am not yet keen on sending the Stealth upper I want to put it on somewhere to have it installed.

Try Jerry @ Valkyrie Tactical. Operation parts and Kings Optics are good places to get KAC stuff too.

I checked both of those places, all sold out. Really sucks. Oh well, more incentive to get a SR-15 Upper!

But just to throw a question out there, what is the difference between the URX 3.1 and URX 3?

Its a really cool rail, especially with the brip panel installed. Here's a pic I took at the KAC booth.

I did see a couple for sale on Gunbroker.

Doesn't parallax sell a rail that looks exactly the same?

I was able to score a URX 3 from Operation Parts and its at Rainier Arms as we speaking getting built with a MUR upper without FA and one of Rainier's 14.5 Match barrels and a pinned FSC556.

Can't wait!

I am still on the notify list for the URX 3.1 and will probably buy one of those when it becomes available too. Not sure what I will put it on though.

The 3 has a folding front sight integrated into the rail, the 3.1 does not.

How about something that looks similar?

The 3.1 is also over an inch longer and has small rail sections next to the upper receiver.

I'll give them credit for not completely copying the URX, but I don't like the way those look.

Thread revival! I saw that too about a week ago for the URX 3.1 I wonder why they moved away from the integrated sight, it was slick. From the new SR-15 style uppers I've seen, they are doing offset back up sights and a longer rail as represented with the URX 3.1. I wish they made it mid length like the URX II 10 3/4" as seeing the gas block stick out slightly was sexy and the 3.1 is too long for my taste.

I love the grip rail grips.

Wow, the rail in those links above is neither a 3 or 3.1

I wonder if they will sell that separately.
