Made from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum and black anodized for additional strength, our line of patent pending picatinny rail adapters for 1911 and Beretta pistols easily attaches to your pistol without drilling, gunsmithing, or performing permanent modifications. No tools are required for installation and removal requires only a small screwdriver.
Now you can easily and quickly install your favorite tactical light or other firearm accessory without altering the integrity of your 1911 Government, 1911 Commander, or Beretta 92/96 pistol.HOW DOES THE RAILTAC PICATINNY RAIL ADAPTER ATTACH TO MY FIREARM?
The adapter attaches to your pistol using 3M VHB alloy adhesive tape, which provides an incredibly strong and permanent attachment to alloys. The same adhesive tape is heavily utilized in aerospace, construction, and automotive industries as a permanent replacement for rivets and mechanical fasteners. The adhesive also resists oils, solvents, heat, and heavy recoil.
If you decide to remove the adapter you can do so by using a small screwdriver to pry between the adhesive tape and the adapter through a special recessed area found on both sides of the adapter. Once the adapter is removed, the adhesive tape is easily removed by hand in a single fluid motion without leaving any sticky residue or film.IS THERE A MORE PERMANENT WAY TO ATTACH THE RAILTAC PICATINNY RAIL ADAPTER?
Yes, we have completed both recoil and heat testing using loctite brand superglue gel with excellent results. The gel is able to provide a rock solid and permanent attachment that can withstand both the recoil and heat generated from shooting, while still offering a clean removal method.
To remove, you must apply direct heat to the rail using a heat gun and carefully pry the heated rail using an oven mitt. Leftover residue can easily be cleaned using acetone, which also works great on both stainless and blued pistols for cleaning any additional powder or lead residue (Do not use acetone on painted surfaces).
While we used loctite brand, other superglue gels may be used provided you use a superglue gel that is formulated to bond to alloy surfaces. This method offers a superior alternative to drilling and tapping your pistol, while still providing a permanent solution that is reversible. Various Superglue gel products can be found at both art supply and hardware stores.HOW SECURE IS THE RAILTAC PICATINNY RAIL ONCE INSTALLED?
When we developed our picatinny rail system we set out to develop a 100% reliable design that could withstand both repeated and heavy recoil, but still allow easy removal only when desired. Installation results in a permanent attachment that also strengthens over time.FIT CHART:
