Tactical Rail Dimensions
Posted 15 June 2013 - 01:58 PM
FNG here. I've been making some tactical rail attachment pieces for my guns. Simple things like iron sights and dart holders to start. However, I'm having trouble getting consistent fit on the rails across my guns. For example, if I take one of my pieces and slide it onto my Vortex rail it fits perfectly, if I take the same piece and try to slide it on my Nitefinder, it is a really tight fit. I'm just wondering if you have found that the tactical rails change from gun to gun. I find this very strange considering Nerf sells accessories for the rail system. Perhaps I am missing something? Any input is appreciated, thanks.

The NiteFinder tac-rail is a smaller on some of them.
Ah, are there any other blasters notorious for this? I'd like to make them as universal as possible.
All of the Nerf attachments rely on spring-loaded clips to hold their attachments to the rails. This removes the need for a truly standardized system, since their attachments can account for slight variations between blasters.
I see. I am trying to integrate something similar by means of a tension screw. However, I have to find good dimensions for the actual rail sliding portion or it renders the tension screw useless.
