New Viking Tactics VTAC EXTREME BattleRail - By Troy Industries

In the last week I acquired a new Viking Tactics VTAC Extreme Battle rail manufactured by Troy Ind. I currently have the JP Enterprises version on an S&W M&P VTAC rifle and since I enjoy it so much, I thought I would give the new VTAC rail a try on my 10.5 LMT.

For starters I had to remove a LaRue 10" rail that was on the rifle. Two DPMS wrenches and a one PRI Barrel Nut Tool later I was able to remove the LaRue barrel nut. Once the LaRue Rail System was out of the way I was able to quickly and very easily install the new VTAC Rail without issue. The new VTAC Extreme Battle Rail comes with two 2" and one 4" rail sections. The 4" section comes with a sling attachment point milled into the section.

I really like this new rail system from Viking Tactics because it is so easy to remove for maintenance under the rail. One of the main selling points for me with the Viking Tactics rail systems is since I do not need all the rail estate that usually comes with most rail systems these days I can choose where I want place sections of rail that best suits me and my setup.

Rails and sections were weighed on US Postal scales.

Weights Just ----------Rail---------Rail w/nut
VTAC-EXT-13---------11.1 oz.-------12.6 oz.
VTAC-EXT-11----------9.7 oz.-------11.2 oz.
VTAC-EXT-9----------- 8.2 oz. --------9.7 oz.
VTAC-EXT-7------------7.0 oz. --------8.5 oz.

2" rail = .8 oz. 4" rail = 1.6 oz. Nut = 1.5 oz.

I still like full rails on shorties and carbines, but that would be sweet on an SPR.

So glockmaster, how are you feeling about that VTAC Battlerail now?

Was it easy to install?

Can I use standard forearm tools like a GI barrel wrench or a YHM wrench to install this forearm?


I'm also assuming I can just cut down my FSB and install the 9" version. Will that slightly tuck my FSB under?

I have the Troy TRX extreme version in 13"

The barrel nut is a proprietary one and Troy claims you need a special wrench. They sent me one for free (wrench)

This is the Troy version of the same rail on an 18" barrel with rifle length gas system

I feel so good about I had a 13" VTAC Extreme rail sent to Bravo Company to finish a 14.5" build Paul is building for me.

It is very easy to install just follow the directions and do not over tighten the two locking bolts.

You should be able to cut down the FSB and install the tube.

Viking has elongated slots for venting, Troy has round holes

I purchased the Troy because I could get it at wholesale.

That is actually smaller than usual and is just practice ammunition.
