Frequently Asked Questions

We did not put a recoil lug on our rails for the simple reason that there is no benefit providing the rail is A) made of structural material like stainless or tool steel rather than mild steel, and B) machined to tight tolerances that ensure the screws prevent the rail from moving for or aft and that the rail actually has the same contours as the action.
The shoulders of the screws we supply are a very close tolerance to the counter bore we machine into the rail. That coupled with our rails being a precise contoured to the action makes the clamping force more than sufficient to keep the rail in place with zero for or aft movement.
If one really wants to ensure rock solid mount a skim of bedding compound will do that and much more effectively than a recoil lug on a rail that has a slim chance of actually touching the action. The only way a rail could be more secure would be to tig weld it to the action, which is totally over the top. With Remington actions being all over the map dimensionally the only way that a lug would help is to custom fit each rail to an individual action.
Most of the rails that we have seen that employ a recoil lug have either large clearance around the screw shanks or oval mounting screw holes. The “recoil lug” is 100% a marketing gimmick that is solving a problem that just does not exist. I can not think of a caliber that could be built on a shoulder fired rifle that would have enough recoil to even warrant bonding the rail to the action, let alone a recoil lug. The question to the makers of rails with lug is why only on the front? For it to really solve the problems alleged there should be 1 front and 1 rear.
