Bravo Company’s KeyMod™ Rail, 13”

Manufactured from an exclusive blended aluminum and magnesium alloy, it weighs 30-40% less than aluminum with the same strength properties. Also featuring a proprietary patent pending mounting, indexing and lock up system that mitigates 12:00 rail movement under heat generated from the barrel nut.

Handguard alone weighs 5.5oz!

1.3” Inner Diameter

1.5” OUTSIDE flat to flat.

Handguard flares forward (towards muzzle end) at the 3 and 9 O'clock positions approximately 1/4"

Actual length when measured to flare is 13.4"

Mounting hardware, 2.2oz, for a total of 7.7oz on a very long 13” rail.

The KMR’s propriety finish was originally developed for the Aerospace industry. It is a plasma deposition process which creates a stabilized ceramic-like surface coating with superior wear resistance when compared to anodize or even hard chrome. The stabilized nature of the coating means it has a higher corrosion resistance as well, due to the lack of ‘pores’ in the surface.

The KeyMod™ interface system was developed by Eric Kincel (now the Director of BCMs' product development team) to work in parallel with the current picatinny system. In many applications it will advance modularity past the current 1913 rail system.

The BCM KMR also allows for a larger range of modularity offering 4 different offset mounting positions between traditional 3,6,9, and 12:00 positions.

In the most basic of applications the KeyMod™ system allows for universal modularity between various manufacturers of accessories, and accessory rails. A big win for the trigger puller. As the industry advances the modular accessories will mount directly to the KeyMod™ instead of picatinny, allowing for a lighter, cleaner, and less bulky weapon system.

Please note: Nylon/Polymer Picatinny rail sections are for NON-load bearing accessories only. For load bearing accessories, we recommend aluminum Picatinny rail sections. Do NOT exceed 20 in/lbs. when securing KeyMod™ Fasteners on Polymer accessories. Aluminum Picatinny rail sections may be torqued to 30 in/lbs

Best handguard on the market November 14, 2015
Reviewer: Adrian Alan from Madison, WI United States  
About a year ago, our agency ordered ten BCM uppers with the KMR rail to replace some older SWAT guns. I have a couple on my personal rifles as well, which I use for duty and while running classes.

These are guns that see a lot of use, a lot of abuse and absolutely have to work all the time. The KMR handguard is perfect for a fighting rifle. It's low profile, lightweight, and the finish is as tough as Wolverine's bones. Keymod provides a solid, low-profile mounting system saving space and weight, but still allowing the use of Picatinny rails if needed.  I won't put any other handguard on my rifles now. The BCM KMR is the gold standard in my opinion.

First Rate Product November 2, 2015
Reviewer: Daniel Epright from Smyrna, TN United States  
Very glad to have acquired this item for an AR15 build for my wife, who is very petite and reluctant to shoot an AR because of the weight. The feather-weight, tight tolerances, and form-follows-function BEAUTY of this hand guard really "made" and completed my wife's AR. Very glad to have BCM recommended at the gun shop. Installation was clear and straightforward with excellent written instructions. Positive experience all around. Will buy again for future builds and will recommend to friends.

Worth talking about... November 2, 2015
Reviewer: gary grant from billerica, MA United States  
Best rail system period. Quad picatinny are obsolete now thanks to this. Ive run giesselle adn vtac alpha, nothing compares to the KMR both in feel and durability. Its been beaten to hell and its just as strong as the day I got it. On top of that it is made by a true American patriotic company who has earned my business for everything I need to trust my life to.

Best of the Best June 25, 2015
Reviewer: Matthew Drinkwalter from Billings, MT United States  
I have installed several different rails on my rifles and my friends rifles. Burn through several different rails in the last 6 year trying to find the right one. Once the 13' rail was installed on both of my AR's, I couldn't believe the quality it gives the shooter from the high speed look, to handling tactically during CQB drills and shooting on the range. This rail tops them all. No other rail will ever come close the superiority that the BCM KMR rail delivers. 5.5oz of pure quality and ruggedness. Don't let the lightness of the rail fool you. Its durable as hell and will surpass all your expectations. Once you go with the BCM KMR rail, you will never go back to looking at any rail out there. It gives you a rock solid feel and boosts your confidence in handling your AR due to its lightness and smaller diameter because it does away with the standard picatinny rails. Worth every cent. You will not be let down.
