Well here I go again, modding a rifle And to be honest this would be something that anyone would be able to do.... yes even you reading this.
After looking around a few different sites, and really wanting to make my M24 something a little different.... as I do with all of my rifles. I was seeing a rail section for the rifle. For the usual PEQ box, sights, and other options. So I started to look around and writing up a few WTB ads on a few forums. And our own Dutton was able to get me the railed section that I was looking for.
I am not sure as to what the rail is called, but it looks like a CASV rail system. Dutton is going to have to chime in and let us know the exact details of the rail.
Now on to the rifle it self.....
I had to do a little mid of modding to get the railed section to fit on the rifle itself. The few spots that I had to mod was the rail on the M24, to get the screws to hold onto the rail. As well as the front metal sleeve that holds on to the two side rails. I had to trim a little bit off of the end to allow the rifle rail to slide under the system.
Now comes the hard part...... I am not sure if I want to bend the rails, and possibly have it look stupid, or to cut the stock to have the rails sit nice and flush to the rifle. I can do either to be honest, but I am just not to sure how strong the aluminum is that holds the side rails on. I don't want to bend it and make it so weak as they will tear off the rifle. Though not sure I want to carve into the stock either. Though I would be able to make the stock look nice, as well as have another attachment point for the rail to be rock solid.
What do you guys think???
