The Picatinny rail is on a good way of becoming a global standard for mounting since it was invented in 1995. Developed on the Weaver template, the biggest advantage of the Picatinny rail is the usage across its entire length, unlike Weaver which has predesignated slots for mounting, limiting its usability and versatility. Ease of use and interchangeability are also its assets. Picatinny has slots evenly placed, namely exactly 5.23 mm one from the other and 3 mm deep. Because of this, the mounting is identical on all firearms using the Picatinny standard. Picatinny rails are usually available with 0 MOA or 20 MOA. 20 MOA inclination enables user to have more elevation adjustment availiable on the riflescope additionally, better long range performance. Picatinny rail can accommodate all types of mounts, also those designed for Weaver standard.
