Sawtooth Rifles Forend Rail: Accuracy International
These forend accessory rails attach to the forends of the Accuracy International rifles and chassis. This rail allows attaching accessories to the rifle, and the rifle to a tripod, with standard RRS 1.5" dovetail (aka Arca-swiss).
Our current offering of rails for the AX and AT configurations utilize authentic Accuracy International Keyslot fasteners (included) and include keyslots to attach a short AI Picatinny rail section forward on the rail if desired.
AX and AX style chassis:
part # 927AIAX11 - 9.27" long, fits AX308 and AXAICS forend with 11 keyslots on bottom
part # 1127AIAX11 - 11.27" long, fits AX308 and AXAICS forend with 11 keyslots on bottom - 2" extended past forend tube

AT and AT style chassis:
part # 1090.2 AIAT7 - 10.9" long, fits AT rifles and chassis with 7 keyslots on bottom (this is an updated design, the "lightening slots" were removed and thickness was added to increase rigidty for the cantilevered section - corner end stop screws were added to be functional with the RRS clamps with picatinny center opening)

note: This part was recently redesigned yielding a stiffer cantilevered section for less deflection with the bipod placed further forward.
AX rifles, AX style chassis
use #927 AIAX for length matched to forend tube
use #1127 AIAX for exteded length, 2" past forend tube end
AX-MC (confirm 14 keyslot slots on bottom side of forend tube)
use #1163 AIAX for length matched to forend tube
Our previous offering for the AX applications is now the "economy line" offered on sale while quantities last. The economy line uses standard fasteners that require access through the forend via the opposite keyslot which requires that the forend or barrel be removed from the rifle for installation.Installation Video for economy line
