Weaver highlighted their newest tactical products at the NRA show. For a company that has traditionally kept to the hunting market, they are making a strong entry into the tactical world. At this show, they showed a new Picatinny rail optics mount displayed on an M4 rifle and a nice lightweight set of scope rings. The forward scope ring also features another rail mount that would accept something like a small red dot for close-range targets.
It is a little ironic that Weaver is adapting their mounts for the military’s Picatinny rail considering that they championed the “Weaver Rail” configuration popular among hunters. Also new for Weaver is a quad rail handguard for M4 carbines (pictured below). Made of aluminum here in the U.S., it carries their laser-engraved logo and rail guards.
