So just for the hell of it I picked up a 597 vtr and I kinda want to dress it up a bit with some fun stuff like a quad rail with a bi-pod and grip but im having some troubles finding the parts can some of you guys help me out?

Any AR-15 accessories will fit the 597 VTR. For the handguard, you can use any free float handguard... if it doesn't come with a barrel nut you'll need to get a standard AR-15 barrel nut, but those are easy enough to come by. Any pistol grip is a straight swap, and the stocks can be swapped out as you desire- the OEM collapsible stock comes on a commercial spec receiver extension, but that can be swapped out for a milspec one or even a regular A2 rifle extension if you so desire.

Here's a thread I started on this subject, complete with pics:
