    Hey folks! I recently found 2 sets of 2 Blackhawk rails for my AR platform at Walmart. I'm assuming that they're discontinued because I can't find them online and they were discounted. Anyway I go to put them on and I noticed that the base is thicket on one end than the other. One side about 1/8 in and the other 1/4 in our so. So if I was to mount say a laser it would not project straightforward from the firearm. But instead at a cant. I'm assuming this is not normal for rails and am wondering about the purpose behind it. Any info is most appreciated.

    ...but I do admit I buy Oil and other motor fluids there in bulk. Will never buy anything firearms related at Walmart.

    Check out the pic below. Maybe that's the reason it's tapered?

    I am a bit of a gear snob on my AR, I am just saying you probably wouldn't find anything named Blackhawk on or near mine.
