KAC URX ll

Post by gaijin » Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:49 pm

Is this rail removed by heating and unscrewing as it appears?

My 16" barreled gun needs a BCM KMR-A 15" rail.

URX rails are a two piece rail that will require a special barrel nut wrench and a fairly specific knowledge of the system for removal. I have a different method that's a little difficult to explain but typically removes even the most stuck handguards.

Some URX rails were installed with loctite and can be difficult to remove. Or you can send it to somebody with experience on installation of the KAC rails.

I would like to put a slightly longer rail on my 9.5"AAC gun. It has the URX rail. Id like to extend the rail over the GMT300blk can. The URX is just such a pain to take off i havent bothered.

I think AAC screwed the pooch with this rail system. At least for the civ market. The guns that went to the Mil had support in place to deal with the rail. Hard to find a civilian shop with the correct wrench to remove the darn thing

The URX rails really are quite good. I've got a couple of my own and ended up buying the wrench and having a set of vice jaws cut to hold the rail alignment. Once you get used to the installation technique, they really do come off quite easily.

If either of you would like to cover shipping both ways, I would be more than happy to remove your rails from the upper at no cost. I would just ask that you remove your muzzle device and gas block.
