    What did they get a contract for?

    For once, Scott and I agree. What's so great about this rail other than the name attached to it?

    The contract was for a 416 rail, they developed the M4 rail at the same time.

    That's a great looking rail. If I was in the market for a new one, I would strongly consider it. I certainly don't see it replacing my VTAC TRX Extreme rails any time soon, unless they prove to be unreliable.

    The interface looks like the Spuhr Interface, but it might just be the picture.

    Oops, checked the video; I was wrong.

    Bill did a great job with this rail. The ONLY thing I'll say is that it requires a new barrel nut.

    With that in mind the Daniel Defense rail is totally drop in, and is so low profile and light it makes the normally boat-anchor-heavy 416 feel like a modern featherweight SBR.

    ETA these comments are in regards to the 416 rail!

    I don't know, it has some nice features. I like the built in QD socket and the steel inserts for rail attachments. It's jumping on the bandwagon of removable rail sections, which is also nice. Like the others, I wouldn't dump any of my current forends for it, but depending on weight, I'd probably try one for a future build if it fit the specs I needed.

    For the M27 IAR or simply others being issued throughout the inventory?

    Bill G. says that SOCOM approached them for the 416 rail, so I'm guessing that doesn't include the M27.
