    I really don't know from the selection provided. All three of them look nice. Aesthetically speaking, I'm not sure one has an advantage over another. Your final decision might have to boil down to one having an advantage over another based upon your set-up. What kind of accessories do you plan to run? Scope? Light?

    Of the three, I only have experience with the Midwest Industries MI T-15 mi-t15, and I can't say I've had any problems with it.

    Well, first of all, how much rail space do you actually need? A full length rail adds significant weight to the front of the weapon. If you just want a light and a VFG, I'd go with something lighter weight.

    Do you want a free float rail?

    Of the three you've listed I'd go with the Troy, though I prefer Daniel Defense myself

    I use a lot of the Midwest Industries rails. They are light, no too expensive and they are solid as a rock. I cant stand a rail that moves around, and some of them do.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    And I'm sure you wouldn't use anything with the word 'Yankee' on it.

    Standard Carbine?

    It's not fancy, but it's light, cheap, and works!

    Maybe I'm just old fashioned and simple sometimes, but sometimes it provides the best real world results.
