    I am looking for the short (12.25) top rail. All I am seeing is the new 15 inch extended top rail. The short one doesn’t appear to be on High-Tech’s website any longer. Does anyone know where I can get the short top rail? Thanks

    You should be able to get it from kel tec.

    Yeah the only reason to get the Hi-Tech one is for a longer rail.

    The KT rail is also a lot cheaper as well!

    KSG owners who switched to a longer, Hi-Tech rail may be a good source too (if they're willing to sell their stock rails).

    I initially bought the regular 12.25" rail from KT and used it for about 1 month before switching to the longer HiTech rail. Now the rail just sits in a box collecting dust.

    Yeah, if you just want a red dot or maybe a light/laser combo the KT rail is fine, especially if you prefer scout-style positioning; but if you want one of those slick shell carriers especially the KS7 really needs those placed further back than most shotguns since the loading port is so far back as well so the extra few inches really matters then.

    I don't plan on using mine since I swapped it for the longer one. So its just sitting in a box. Im in SoCal, San Diego area so if you are near by you may just pick it up.

    I got mine on Amazon, 2 for 18$. I had to drill and countersink a hole because the distance is not quite right between them. For $9 vs $40 I don't mind a little drilling.
