M25 compatibility with EBR / EMR?

M25 compatibility with EBR / EMR?

I am running a Sadlak extended rail on my M25, and I am fairly certain it will interfere with the handguard rail on the EBR chassis. Can anyone confirm? If so, will it clear an EMR handguard?

The only receiver that I know is directly compatible with the EBR rail is the Bula XM21. The rail is the same height and does not interfere.

Im sure the M25 receiver will fit, and I think it will even fit with the standard length rail, as per BangkokPaul's build:



My main point of confusion is with the extended receiver rail. Here is a build someone did with an M25 / extended receiver rail combo, but I suspect they may have actually milled off some of the handguard rail. Its hard to say, though, because it doesnt look like bare metal underneath:



Comparing the above photo, with a photo of an EMR handguard (below) leads me to believe that even the EMR requires some additional relief to fit the extended rail. Notice the difference between the rails compared to the screw holes. Hoping Im wrong, as Id really prefer to not huck a new Sage handguard into a mill.

I have 3 of my rifles in SAGE chassis
2 of them are M25 LRB receivers.

I personally Love M25 receivers , low profile scope mount , super light mount , modernized M14 receiver ,

As you see with short scope mount of M25 receiver from LRB , I used a file and remove one of the rails and painted black same color as the chassis.

Here is the second one .

One of my rifles I ordered from Fulton armory with SAGE EBR heavy 18.5 inch keriger barrel with Fulton armory scope mount
When I received the rifle they removed the rails by file and repainted, I can see that .

Any scope mount that overhangs the front of the receiver (which is most of them) will require a modification to the EBR hand guard. This includes M25's, Brookfield styles, etc. Not a big deal. Just file or mill of the rear boss on the hand guard rail. Requirement will vary depending on the length of the mount rail.

I did it back in 2014. Sage sales told me to order my EBR chassis stock with a "Smith Top." This is a special top cover, Part No. 90990, that is milled to accommodate an SEI rail that extends in front of the receiver. Works great with my LRB M25. Hopefully you can still get one that way.
