Manticore Arms X95 Cantilever Forend (OEM Height Rail) Gen II

X95 Cantilever Forend offers a wealth of features at an incredible price.  To solve some of the inherent issues of how to securely mount a forend to the X95 without contacting the barrel Manticore had to think outside the box, and the solution was a two part system.

The first component consists of a 39 slot picatinny top rail and cover plate assembly that is matched to the height of the OEM top rail used on the X95.  This is a bit lower than the rail used on guns like the AR-15, but if you find the height of the OEM rail just right you will want to go with this top rail height!  In addition the top rail is cut for the 300 blackout gas adjustment access in case you are mounting on a 300 Blackout X95.

The second component is the forend itself which is 2″ longer than the OEM forend, features 3 rows of M-LOK (13 slots) on each side plus 2 QD points on each side,  and  5 slots of M-LOK on the underside.  The center row of M-LOK on the sides and the underside row on M-LOK is centered on the bore line making it much easier to zero lasers and other items that are bore line sensitive.   The top of the forend features two L-shaped tabs that engage matching slots on the top rail.  To install the forend portion just slide the forend into the slots on the top rail along the axis of the barrel, make sure the alignment tab on the underside engages the opening in the receiver,  tighten the cross bolt screw and you are ready to go with a rock solid mounted forend.  This along-the-bore-axis installation allows the additional benefit of being able to install a suppressor up to 1.5″ in diameter on the barrel and the forend can easily be slid on and off without need to remove the suppressor.

Not wanting to leave an opening where the lower plastic tab of the OEM forend engages, we have included a polymer filler block that blends perfectly with the receiver to keep everything closed up and tidy.  The forend and top rail are connected via a tongue and groove rail system and are secured together with screws for stable mounting and no movement.

One last benefit- with X95 Cantilever forend THE BARREL IS NOW FREE FLOATED (as much as is possible with the X95- the top rail mounts to the gas block assmebly at the base of the barrel).  No more contact of the barrel as with the OEM polymer forend and its two barrel mounted polymer support points, as the X95 Cantilever Forend is completely supported by the top rail and the receiver.
