Question What Type of Rail System is This?

I really like the lines of this rail system, but I'm unsure if I've ever seen it before. What model is it? Also, what scope rings are these??

Rings look like Badger rings too.

I have always loved this set up. TNVC makes that cheek riser too with the extra mag pouch. Sweet rig to say the least.

Yeah, that setup makes me want to build something special.

What mount is that in the clip guide? (doh!! I figured it out...sorry!)

Looks like an SEI CG brake, no?

That KAC rail is spendy. I've only recently learned about it by coming across some old for sale listings in the interwebs.

Looks like an SEI coast guard brake to me.

Why won't it fit the SOCOM 16?

In MrShmity's first link the site, OperationParts, notes that this rail won't fit the SOCOM 16.

Anyone know how it attaches at the front? Unless it's attached to the barrel in some manner, vs just attaching like a standard fiberglass handguard, I'm thinking that it might not give the best accuracy to the mounted optic. Anyone running one of these that could describe the mounting?

i really hope it's not in reference to the (removable) scout mount. A reviewer states it only works with standard profile barrels.

That same reviewer talks about the attachment not fitting the barrel contour of his Loaded.

I rock a basset low pic mount with vortex low rings and a TNVC(no mag pouch) and a coast guard break.

Im pretty sure it fits under the front band or stops short of it barely.
