M16 New Old Stock Rifle Forend Assembly RAS - M5 Rail 

P&S Products - USGI Government Contractor - Identical to Knights Armament, no rail covers included

The M5 RAS (Rail Adapter System) was developed for use on the US military’s M16A4, and with hundreds of thousands of rails issued to date, it is one of the most battle proven designs available for the AR-15 platform.  The M5 RAS has been manufactured by both Knights Armament and by P&S Products.  The product is identical, and both used on USGI rifles.

This is "New Old Stock," which means that it was produced years back, but has not been used.  Some markings might be different from current production, but it is the same item.  Also, NOS means that the box and packing might be damaged or replaced.

This non-free float handguard is a simple-to-install, drop-in upgrade that features genuine Mil-Spec M1913 Picatinny Rails along its entire length. What sets the M5 RAS apart from other 2-piece quad rails on the market is that it securely locks to the rifle’s barrel nut via a clamp and screw arrangement, making it a very solid foundation upon which to mount tactical accessories.

Rifle Requirements: The M5 RAS is a drop-in replacement part for standard, 2-piece polymer, A2-type handguards. The rifle must have a rifle length gas system, delta ring assembly, fixed front sight/gas block, and either a round or triangular handguard end cap. Lighter barrel profiles work best (Government contours). Heavier barrel contours may require modification to the inside of the rail. For AR-15/SR-15 based platforms only; not compatible with SR-25 variants. Installation instructions are included.
