Spuhr Talks Mil Std 1913

This was written by Håkan Spuhr and I thought it was worth sharing.

Top is NATO drawing of Stanag 4694, the backcompatible replacement for picatinny Mil-std 1913.

Lower is one “so called picatinny” and there is a lot of those violations of standard out there.

To put it simple, crossslots should be minimum 5.23mm and square in bottom and there should be 10mm C-C betwen them.

If there not is that, it’s not a Picatinny, and not a NATO rail either!

And it does matter if God’s own Armoury have produced the rail, it’s simply wrong!
