Diamonhead VRS rail system

Post by Solscud007 on Mon Jan 20, 2014 6:08 pm

So I talked to the people at Diamond head at SHOT SHOW 2014.





Retail is $180. Coming out in a few months. Right now this is the only one in existence. I would prefer it to be longer for increased sight radius. One issue I had was receiver height rail. It makes the rail system very tall. Too tall to grasp comfortably in my preferred method.

First, it needs a rail on the bottom and ability to put ones on the sides, and second, it needs to be able to take the light in the front like the vector upper receiver can

If it is ever able to do that I might get it for my SBR with a suppressor

It can take rails on the bottom. Using a light in the receptacle is possible, but the problem is you will get some serious shadow. The light will be in a tunnel so it will cut off the corona of the light.

I think he meant that you should be able to mount a light in the front, above the barrel, so it works properly.  ;)

I am good with the design just the way it is provided they thread a few holes in the 3 & 9 position so you can add short rails. With rails on the side you can then mount your light on either side. I would gladly move my light from the receiver socket to the side of a rail as nice as that. I have an SBR with TiRant suppressor which would look great as it would only stick out the front of the handguard a few inches.

It wasn't even in their lineup a couple days ago so it should be coming out soon.

I wonder if you could mount an AAC Ti-Rant/piston on a 6.5" barrel with the Diamondhead VRS Rail attached? (Or any other 6-7" long 45ACP suppressor)....Will have to compare the AAC diameter with that of the VRS Rail.

It also offers an interesting look if you remove the barrel shroud (its possible to remove the shroud without removing the VRS)

Anyone know the size and thread pitch for the bolt holes on the sides?  the bolts that came with the VRS are the wrong size to fit those 4 holes on the vector

Local hardware store will have them, M4(4mm), not sure what length you need but they're only 20 cents apiece.

I placed my order yesterday and the charge is pending on my card so they must have some in stock.

The TiRant will work as I have one on my SBR and the OD of the TiRant is smaller than the OD of the barrel shroud on the 16" you see pictured.  I am going to order one of these handguards tomorrow and will post pictures of what the TiRant looks like under the Diamondhead rail. My guess is that only about 4 inches of the suppressor will stick out giving it that MP5-SD look.

Thanks MadDogDan. Look forward to seeing your pics of the Ti-Rant and Diamondhead Rail combo.

Just ordered a Diamondhead Rail myself. The site said "back ordered" but hopefully it will not take long to receive it.

Thanks for the info regarding the Ti-Rant/shroud diameter comparison.

i'm highly curious how that turns out, gotta upload some pics when it's setup

Good news: Fits perfect, looks great, very well made and aluminum not plastic.
Bad news: 1)shitcan the flashlight cause it won't work on top anymore
2)make sure you have your own mounting screws for it, doesn't come with the
ones.
3)doesn't come with any rails, so I'm back to square one with my forward grip
my laser.

Apparently the short and long rail accessories will fit the bottom of the VRS so I have one on order so I can try my forward grip
