Armed with an innovative concept on how to solve a problem that plagued weapon systems, our company was conceived as MantaRails in the fall of 2009. The challenge was what to do with accessory pressure pads. The answer – and our first MantaRail product – was the Manta Micro Pocket Switch Holder. Introduced to the firearms industry in early 2010, the Manta Micro Pocket Switch Holder allowed a firearm operator to simply slide a pressure pad into the Micro Pocket and snap the Switch Holder on the rail . . . all in a matter of seconds.
