Thanks for replying. I'm thinking the same thing. I was reading another post about the plastic rail failing. Someone from Kel Tec responded and said that the rail was going to be strengthened but the post was in 2012 and I never found out if it was done. A small piece of metal will give me a little more peace of mind.Extra leverage on bullpup pump with a plastic forend rail...what could possibly go wrong?
Even with two connection points, yes, do the safety rail!
So does that mean the extra rail isn't necessary? The installs of the Magpul RVG on the KSGs on YouTube show people not using an extra rail but I just want to make sure.Ket Tec made some major changes to the front rail/fore end area 2-3 years ago. Pics are posted somewhere here. They added a bunch of heavy internal "ribs" to give the fore end more strength and stabilty.
This seems to have solved the problems.
It sure can't hurt anything!I have the latest generation with the strengthened rail but since I use my KSG for 3-Gun Matches and rack that slide very fast with authority, I added the aluminum rail from Hitech. The cost was minimal compared to the extra safety I receive from the rail.
