Im looking to upgrade my AR w/ a Quad Rail and im looking for some options. i have a rock river CAR length. ive seen them priced from anywhere from $75-$400. i would really like to keep the price under the $150-$200 range if at all possible and if i can get a quality rail for that price.
are there any brands that you would suggest?
any brands that you would say absolutely stay away from?

Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.
Look at Daniel Defense Omega Rail-available in multiple lengths. I find it a bit narrower than others and fits my hand better. Also, DD is top qulaity stuff. The Omega rail is not a free float so it does not require gunsmithing, but acts like a free float.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Do you want a free float rail or not? What are you going to be using the rails for? What kind of attachments do you want to add?
I have Midwest Industries on my AR, for my purposes, they work just fine.
Honestly, if I had to do it again, I'd go with Magpuls MOE handguards: http://store.magpul.com/product/MAG405/50 And save some weight and money. But I am known to get all hopped up on Magpul parts sometimes.

I have the Omega rail on one of my ARs and it works well.
The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
YHM makes the least exspensive, good rails...
i just got this for a new build...
like it alot...
I second YHM. I have a YHM diamond-pattern free-float on my main AR, and I could not be happier with it. They're well-made, solid, and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for?
If you go with YHM, I would also recommend picking up one of their forearm end caps. Probably not crucial, but I think it looks nice, and it closes out the free-float tube nicely.

Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?
The Ultra lightweight Samson Evolution modular rail system seems to be the way to go.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Like custom guns and stuff? Check this out...
I like how the rails on the Samson's are rounded off. Looks like it would be a little easier on the hands.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
thinking about free float with it. I so would lik to get a style that the top rail coms all the way back to the flat top on the upper & creates a constent flow almost like 1 really long rail. the only 1 I've seen w/ this are the more expensive 1s though
Troy TRX is working good on my rifle...or go with the Viking Tactics by Troy both have a full top rail attached.
ended up going w/ the DD Omega and couldnt be happier, just took it out today and shot it for the first time since in put it on and it worked out really nice. thanks for all the input
Check out cheaper than dirt, they have a good selection and good prices. I just ordered some stuff from them for my DPMS - AR15.
