Daniel Defense has unveiled the EZ CAR Rail™ 9.0, a replacement option for handguards on AR’s with mid-length gas systems.
The EZ CAR™ Rail has built a reputation as a rock solid platform that installs easily with no special tools or modifications to the rifle. Its two-piece, non-free float design mounts to a standard delta ring and handguard cap of a mid-length gas system with no modifications to the host weapon. And like the EZ CAR™ Rail 7.0, its overall width is just enough to accommodate most AR-15 accessories. In addition, it’s unique in the sense that it’s compatible with round or triangular handguard caps.
The EZ CAR™ 9.0 is precision machined from Aerospace Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum, and finished with Military Specification Type III Hardcoat Anodizing. The EZ CAR™ 9.0 is 9.2” in length, 2.4” wide, has an inner diameter of 1.38”, and weighs in at just 12.4 ounces. Ounces quickly add up to pounds, so Daniel Defense strives to keep weight to a minimum.
Daniel Defense believes this move will create yet more opportunity for enhancement to AR15’s with factory installed plastic handguards. “In this case, it’s not about developing a brand new design. Expanding on an existing product to complement a mid-length gas system just made sense,” says Jordan Hunter, Director of Marketing for Daniel Defense. Backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee, the EZ CAR™ 9.0 is a great alternative.
