ATI Gunstocks' 8-Sided Aluminum Fore-end and More
Advanced Technology International, manufacturer of firearms accessories, was on hand at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Pittsburgh, Pa. to showcase its newest products: the Triton quickmount receiver system, mag-tube socket wrenches and 8-sided rail fore-end.
The Triton system allows easy swapping of any ATI rear stock or pistol grip by simply unfastening one screw, turning the laborious process into a 15-second operation.
The Mag Socket Wrenches operate under the same theory. Without the tool, unscrewing or resecuring a shotgun magazine tube can be a hassle, but this socket wrench specially designed to slip over a 12-gauge-sized tube frees the tube with a modicum of effort.
The most exciting product ATI had to offer, though, was its 8-sided free float aluminum fore-end, for the sheer versatility it gives the AR-type platform. In addition to equipping a rifle with any rail-mountable optic, with a slight turn of the firearm, the user can switch to a differently sighted optic. For example, on the top rail, you could mount a long-range riflescope while putting back-up iron sights on the rail just to the right. Without having to remove anything, you could instantly engage a close target and transition back to the riflescope by simply twisting the AR.
