Battle Proven Rail System

Specifically developed for the US Navy E.O.D. Groups (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), the CASV-EL has become a Battle Proven rigid mounting platform, respected by all end users. 

The CASV-ELS is a variation for a user with special optic needs. Like all CASV systems, the CASV-ELS relies on "piggy-back" mounting to the top of a “flat-top” M4 upper receiver. But what makes the CASV-ELS different is its forward “Stepped” top rail portion. This forward rail allows the optic (such as most EOTechs) to be placed at the same plane/height as the weapon’s back-up iron sights, i.e. “co-witness”. Co-witnessing allows the end-user to sight-in the optic to the back-up iron sights or vice-versa. This means less time at the range, while sighting in the weapon.

Like the CASV-EL, this model is a “drop-on” rail system for a Carbine-Length gas system that is equipped with a fixed sight-tower/gas block system, as commonly found on most 10.5”, 14.5”, and some 16” barrels. The system also features a removable lower handguard, which allows the access of an M203 barrel-mounted grenade launcher. The smooth body construction allows multiple rail mounting points, adaptable to any mission needs. Each CASV kit features various lengths of removable rails and mounting hardware.

Like all CASVs, the CASV-ELS relies on the use of the Delta Ring for a more secure mounting point. Vltor does not recommend that any CASV handguard be used without the standard Delta Ring assembly. This CASV chassis is made entirely of aluminum, with the exception of the stainless steel mounting hardware.

Installation note: The installation of this handguard does not require any modifications to the firearm except for the removal of the sight tower sling swivel (if your carbine is equipped with one).

The CASV-ELS contains the following Items:
Qty.1    6-inch Accessory Rail
Qty.2    4-inch Accessory Rails
Qty.2    2-inch Accessory Rails
Qty.13  10-32 x ˝ Flathead Hex Drive Screws
Qty.2    Hex Wrenches for Mounting Clamp and Accessory Rail Installation.

The CASV-EL is one of the simplest rail systems to install, requiring no special installations tools.  All that is needed is to remove the pinned in sling swivel located on the front sight tower assembly.  Each handguard assembly has a rigid continuous rail section along the top, and comes with removable rail sections that allow the user to install rail sections where needed.

Fits all flat top receivers, carbine length gas systems M4 AR15 carbine series system.  This system will not work with Mid-Length or Rifle Length gas systems.

Makes a great rifle even greater November 19, 2012
Reviewer: Joseph White from Key West, FL United States  
I love this upgrade. it made a great rifle even greater. Limitless optic configurations due to the "stepped" feature. From a long range scope at the right height to see over the front sight or CQB electronic sights w/magnifiers. The only downside is your rear flip up sight options. When the CAS-V is mounted, your flat top will only have one picatinney notch left to mount your rear sight with. Other than that, this thing is wicked and worth every last penny.

excellent handguard! March 19, 2011
Reviewer: Gaweda from NC United States  
i recieved the CASV-ELS carbine length with the stepped yesterday and couldnt be happier. when they say its easy to put on, they werent kidding. easiest upgrade ive ever done, probably took me just over 60 secs.  on the factory it says that you have to remove your front sight sling.  that is not true (for anyone whos worried about that).  mine tucked back nicely under the lower section of handguard and makes no rattling.  anyways, exceptional purchase.  definitly worth the money only if you want a quality AR.  cant wait to get it to the range! peace.
