Samson Evo 10
I have this evolution rail system mounted on my AR 15 9" barrel .300 Blackout pistol and it fits awesome. A noveske flaming pig flash hider is on there for now next is the suppressor . Very well made and just as I I expected.

Grrrreat AR-15 handguard
This Samson rail 12".37 on a 16" fruited SS barrel 556 upper that I put together. It looks kool stays tight. I have put 500 + rounds through it no problems. This rail has a good grip but is accessible on the bare hand. Love this keymod rail system and will by one for my 6.8 SPC.
The Samson evolution series is Good and Solid
It does not fit well with standard heigh gas blocks "AKA Adams arms gas block for a gas piston conversion kit. You know the people that support Samson rails and supposedly have interchangeable parts." Anyway, other than needing some minor fitting, it works well, and my buddy loves it on his new rifle. Be warned; it can get dinged very easily.
My favorite AR rail system.
I have two of these rails - a 12.37" on my 16" 6.8 builds with a low profile Black Rifle Arms piston kit, and a 9" on my 7.5" 5.56 pistol build with a Noveske KX3 that barely pokes out of the end. Both of them are rock solid. The only issue I've ever had in one of the 1913 rail sections I ordered from MSP was machined incorrectly and would not install on the rail. I got ahold of Samson manufacturing, and they let me return it to be replaced. They sent me a new rail section that works perfectly.
When you get the Samson evolution series on, it's a fantastic keymod rail system!
It's a solid fantastic keymod rail system; you can't complain after you've got it properly installed. The video listed on this page with the product is an excellent tutorial on how to get it fixed. This being said, Samson manufacturing has made one assumption, which I think is a weak point in the installation process. The assumption is that you already have a MOE or Mil-Spec type hand-guard. They are assuming you have a standard Mil-Spec barrel nut already installed on the barrel. What they are forgetting is the guy building an AR from scratch. My four-star rating is entire because of this issue. My prior experience is with an Odin Works 15.5" Keymod rail, and they have their proprietary barrel nut, which is remarkably smart for lining up the gas tube. I think most of the aftermarket ar rail system manufacturers have their proprietary barrel nut, which usually aids in installation. I had to get the rail to figure out it didn't come with a barrel nut. It was a "batteries not included" level of frustration. The mil-spec "sprocket" style barrel nut I had overnighted refused to line up appropriately, so the gas tube wouldn't be out of alignment. Eventually, I had to consult a gunsmith who advised me to crank the torque on up over 80 lbs; the gun would be okay. This was the only way I got this rail to work. After you get this thing installed, you have admitted it's a looker! Real robust and firm rail with no wiggle whatsoever.
Best Keymod Rail System
I bought this rail when I saw the information posted on AR15.com. Nice to see a manufacturer selling a keymod rail for a reasonable price instead of charging more for no reason. The site says it came with the accessory rail sections, and it did not. I called Samson, and they said that it was a mistake. That's fine with me, though, since the price was right! Rail installed fine and was very easy. Best looking keymod rail on the market! The only manufacturer that I know of that found a way to make a tube-style round rail work with the keymod holes. Keep up the great work guys; I'll be buying another one for my next build.
