M-Lok Works, Finally

Recommended Posts

I am updating one of my AR15's with new Magpul furniture and among a variety of frustrations, like removing and installing roll pins and trying to find itsy bitsy springs that go ballistic and end up in a parallel universe, I have just finished my close encounter with their M-Lok rail. Good grief, I like Magpul stuff but none of it has been, 'easy' for me to install. The first sentence in their online M-Lok instructions:

 

"The M-LOK direct attachment system is extremely intuitive and easy to use."

 

I have to admit they have a sense of humor. Maybe it's easy for their rocket scientist type customers. Anyway, I finally figured it out with the help of their detailed pictorial installation instructions for dummies.

Your next one should go faster on the rail install.

I just ordered a new Zhukov handguard for my AK. I was pleased to see it has M-Lok. I too looked at the instructions and am a bit bewildered. I hope I don't end up fighting teh stoopid.

The Keymod was said to be the same way. The first time you do The Keymod it was a tad frustrating but once you learn you are good to go. The Keymod nut has two flats on either side. What I had to do is shake the Keymod till the two flats aligned with the holes they slide into and push them forward. The first few attempts I was arrrrrgggggggg! On the Mlock make sure that it engages at the 90 degrees before you tighten it down.

Thanks for the tip. I ended up going with Mlok on my first build and am just waiting for it to get here.
