Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE PRESENT INVENTION
  • 1. Field of Invention
  • The present invention relates to a firearm, and more particularly to a rail arrangement for a firearm, wherein the rail arrangement provides a plurality of rail surfaces extending longitudinally for the accessory selectively mounting thereat so as to enhance the practical use of the accessory.
  • 2. Description of Related Arts
  • A conventional firearm generally comprises a firing assembly which includes a barrel and a butt stock extended from a rear end of the firing assembly. For a long gun, such as rifle, the butt stock is adjacent to the shooter's shoulder during firing. Firearm tools or implements, such as an aiming sight for assisting aim by guiding the eye of the shooter to the target, are provided to mount on top of the firing assembly.
  • Accordingly, the firearm further comprises a mounting rail longitudinally formed a top surface of the firing assembly, wherein the firearm tool is detachably mounted at the mounting rail. For example, the aiming sight is detachably mounted at the mounting rail. The shooter is able to aim the target by aligning the eye to the eyepiece of the aiming sight. However, such configuration of the mounting rail to mount the firearm tool on the firearm has a major drawback.
  • When the shooter aims the target and shoots, he or she is under an uncover position. In other words, when the eye of the shooter aligns with the eyepiece, a relatively large head portion of the shooter is exposed in a wide-opened manner. However, the shooter should remain out of a line of enemy fire while being able to shoot at the target in an aimed manner. It is impossible to put the shooter at risk in such uncovered position to increase the shooting accuracy via the aiming sight. In other words, in order to fire in a cover position, the shooter may not precisely aim the target through the aiming sight which may reduce the shooting accuracy, waste the ammunition, and even loss his or her life.
  • In addition, other firearm tools, such as a long-range telescope sight, a short-range telescope sight, a laser sight, a handgrip, a sling adapter, or a flash light, cannot be effectively mounted at the firing assembly at the same time via the mounting rail. In other words, the shooter may merely need to change one firearm tool to another firearm tool for operation.
