Default Manticore ARC LOK Alfa rail for standard stamped AK's 50% through the end of 2015!

From now until the end of the year, all remaining stock of ARC LOK ALFA Rails are 50% off. Yes, you read that right- we are selling them below our cost to make them!


Sometimes you make a product that turns out to not be a hot seller, even when that product can directly mount all Magpul MOE polymer rails segments and accessories.


Well, if we can't make money, at least we can practically give them away to you to put to good use!

I thought the other version you had was MLOK? I'm easily confused.

I have your KeyMod Alfa rail and love it. I was hoping this one would be popular too.

I'm confused with the ARC LOK and M-LOK, and was following the development of these handguards (when you were first going to produce them) on some other forums as well.

Are the slots for this handguard the exact same size as the slots on the Magpul furniture? I guess besides the difference in names, the ARC LOK and M-LOK are interchangeable? Or are they a little different but the M-LOK accessories will fit/work anyway?

The only reason I'm asking is because (awhile back) I thought you were making your own version of this locking system, but smaller so you could fit more slots on a handguard. I checked your website any only saw the ARC LOK and KeyMod offered.

I just wanted to clarify before I purchase one.

Thanks and sorry for the long post!

Their ARC LOK Fits MOE but an adapter plate is neede to make M-LOK fit MOE which means the same adapter plate is needed to make M-LOK fit their ARC LOK

Please consider making one, since there are currently no standard ak lower handguards in M-LOK besides the polymer magpul offerings. Or at least a small batch and i will be your first customer.

Hopefully they are available for a little bit longer.

Thanks Sven!
