    Default AR quad rail

    Just looking for recommendations or what do you run. I have a carbine length gas system with Aframe front sight post not looking to spend $800 on the rail but I have played a mall ninja on tv and I have trained with Detroit urban survival so let me know what you rec or run in your rifle

    Second for the KAC rail. Though mine is a M5 RAS on a 20" rifle.

    Can you splain to me what it is you like? Or what makes it good at least. I know the KAC name but have none of their products before

    I have a couple OTiS Technology TRS-74 Quad AR Hand Guards (7', one piece free float) that I haven't decided what to build with them yet (rainy day projects). They were bought a while back and then people went gaga over the real small diameter hand guards and didn't even want to consider one that was 1 3/4" ID. Will they come back in vogue? Who knows but they are well built so I'll hang on to them for now.

    And on that note...

    Perfect timing! As I understand it, quad rails are coming back in style.

    I have NO idea WHY though.

    Nostalgia?

    It's certainly not for the comfort.

    I don't get it, but everyone is not me, so I'm glad there are a gazillion options to suit any want/need.

    I'm behind the times... I just ditched my quad rail. lol

    Am I now expected to put that upper back on? I mean, I don't want to offend the current fashion trend.

    So my reasoning for it is the magpul stuff that came stock on my rifle moves approx 1/4-3/8 side to side and I have a stubbie vert grip on it so its very noticeable I assumed the quad rail would be more firm

    I dunno. I only have one carbine with A2 front sight that has a Magpul MOE handguard with MOE fore grip.
    Never noted any play - and that would bug the shit out of me, so I would notice.

    KAC M4 RAS is a drop in, aluminum heat shields and solid lockup, KAC rib panels in different sizes to cover the rails you*re not using. I*ve had quite a few drop in rails and the KAC is king.
