This standard also specifies uniform accessory mounting rails and interchangeable conditions between different US Department of Defense departments. Compliance with this standard is mandatory in the preparation of drawings, specifications or technical data packs for the accessory mounting rail used in firearms.

Picatinny rail is a piece of tactical equipment usually found in an assault weapon and manufactured to NATO standards. It is generally located at the top of the weapon and was originally designed for the attachment of scopes to the weapon. This equipment, which has become a NATO standard over time, is used today for the purpose of attaching night vision binoculars, standard optical binoculars, laser targeting systems and similar equipment to the weapon.

Picatinny rail was previously fixed to the barrel or body with the help of an apparatus for various firearms. However, since these early applications showed that the usage areas could be quite wide, it was later used for every conceivable firearm, called the rail interface adapter system.

Parallel to the developments in weapon technology, the MIL-STD-1913 military standard was developed by the US Department of Defense on incompatibility problems encountered in practice. Now, manufacturing companies have to produce in accordance with these standard criteria.

Within the scope of other military testing services, EUROLAB also provides MIL-STD-1913 tests (picatinny rail, mounting bracket on firearms). Thanks to these services, businesses receive more effective, high-performance and quality testing services and provide safe, fast and uninterrupted service to their customers.
