The Mk16 is the latest evolution in Geissele's Super Modular Rail. It is based upon the Mk14, but then adds upper tabs to lock-in the alignment between the upper receiver and the rail.
Geissele has a number of "Super Modular Rails," and like their triggers, each is a little different. The Mk16 has its roots in the US Special Forces URGI upgrade starting in 2015 for the M4 infantry carbine. The Mk16 rail features M-LOK on seven sides and Picatinny on the entire length of the top. The rail itself is thinner than others, which cuts down on weight, and some prefer its slim profile. The Mk16 is one of our favorites at Charlie's, and while the DDC color is more often found on US Army rifles, the black is classic. The later rails are stamped with Geissele's branding without laser etched white, and top rail features engraved T-marks. While the rails is thin, it is very strong.
And additional feature with this rail, is the versatility to mate with any forged upper receiver. Geissele's Super Duty line has dove-tail fitted uppers and rails, which make it impossible to swap with non-Super Duty products.
This is the same rail that is found on Geissele's URGI upper receiver group and the Super Duty riles. The Geissele Super Modular Rail MK16 offers unmatched performance for the most demanding shooters. Mounted to your AR-15 upper using the updated version of the proven Geissele Barrel Nut design, the MK16 is not only easy to install and maintain, but offers superior rigidity. Anti-rotation tabs and set-screws ensure that your rail will not rotate, even under the most extreme conditions of use. M1913 Picatinny rail on top and M-LOK™ slots on every quadrant ensures maximum customization for all your accessories. The Geissele SMR MK16 is precision machined using 7000 Series Aluminum due to its strong, rigid and light properties, and is finished in durable Type-3 Hardcoat anodized.
