The NSWC-Crane testing compared M-LOK to KeyMod to try to determine which system was superior. The M-LOK system outperformed the KeyMod system in almost every facet by a large margin.
I wanted a free-floating handguard for this build, and I decided to shop for a system that was between 13.5 inches and 15 inches in length. I settled on a rail system that was 13.5 inches in length for purely cosmetic reasons. I am using a Strike Industries Warhog Comp muzzle brake which is a fairly small muzzle device and didn’t think that a 15-inch rail system would look right on my rifle.
