    Rail clearance needed for 5.56 SOCOM RC?

    I'm not exactly sure how to phrase this question. I'm thinking of using a 14 inch barrel from Clint with a 13" Mk 14 Geissele rail. I'd like to pin a Surefire muzzle brake for the suppressor mount, and I'm wondering if this combo works out:

    14" Black River Tactical barrel
    13" Mk 14 rail
    Surefire 5.56 1/2x28 Muzzle Brake

    I've tried Googling but the closest I can come up with is finding a flash hider mount that barely clears the rail.

    It would work. One of my rifles has a 14" Ballistic Advantage barrel with a 13" Mk14 rail and it clears just fine.

    I even have an 11.5" barrel with 10.75" Hodge rail and a 10.3" barrel with 9.5" Mk14 rail and those both clear fine.

    10.3" barrel:


    11.5" barrel:


    14" barrel:


    As you can see there's plenty of clearance with the 14" barrel.

    Much appreciated! I'll order the barrel asap!

    (Excellent looking builds, by the way!)
