Which would you pick? Or is there something else you like better?
I would say M lok,not that there is anything wrong with KeyMod only by fact of Magpul's popularity and I would be willing to predict in five years finding Keymod accessories will be limited,time will tell. SJ 40
Keymod works for me. Easier and faster to mount accessories and verify security
Same song, 2nd verse.
There was a thread about this 1-2 weeks ago.
Oh man, really it comes down to your preference. Personally, I use all three on different ARs (pic rail, KM, and Mlok). The manufacturing quality of the rail, and mounts for attachments makes a noticeable difference with all three. Pick whichever one you like the best, cant really go wrong.
I'd pick the handguard you like best and not worry about the mounting type. For me the BCM KMR handguard is the one I want, therefore I'm automatically committed to KeyMod.
I looked back a few pages and didn't see anything - my search keymod VS m-lok has the most recent thread post on the subject Aug 6, 2015.
But thanks for contributing - I sorted back a few more pages and found it.
I have both.
I like the looks of m lok better
Function wise same to me.
I was at a gun show today - 8 out of 10 were Keymod --
I actually think the M-Lok looks better - and the Keymod had sharper edges.
Looking at uppers on PSA web site and it seems like most available for sale are Keymod - the M-Lok is always out of stock.
So is this because everyone wants Keymod so that is what PSA builds - or are the M-Lok always out of stock because that is what more people are buying?
I am thinking about getting an upper with an 18" barrel / free float handguard, rifle length gas system in .223 Wylde to set up a longer range AR - permanently mount my Nikon P-223 scope to it and then devote my carbine upper to the basic MBUS that came with the gun (S&W M&P Sport II)
Then someday in the future - buy or build the lower.
Mlok for sure. Looks better, feels better, works about the same.
Mlok for me.
I went Keymod a few years ago before Mlok was really a thing. I think Mlok is probably a better system, but not better enough to change over. If you are not yet invested in one, I'd go Mlok.
Flip a coin...Its personal preference! Get one of each problem solved.
It's a good choice! I have a 15" KMR on my SPR, worth every penny!
My second choice is an ALG EMR and I think that's available in both KeyMod and M-LOK but I do prefer the BCM KMR by a slight bit.
I am not worried in the slightest about KeyMod dying off like Beta did in the Beta vs VHS video tape wars.
The KMR is an amazing rail.
I have a few rifles with the Knights URX4, all being KeyMod. I do like the MLok, but not enough to change what I have. Both are great systems, they're just different. It's all about user preference
I wouldn't worry either. Considering the guy who invented KM, now works for BCM. The market is easily big enough to support the quality KM products, even though M-Lok supposedly outsells it.
I guess just call me a Magpul whore.
I bought quite a bit of stuff based on looks and function, turns out they were ALL Magpul products.
Best one was actually the SL forearm. No more burned fingers.
Even on the back of my side-by-side
I wish more rails would omit the full length top picatinny and only have it at the far end. 99% of us never mount anything on the top except a BU iron. That's one big reason I'm considering the ALG EMR.
