I have a Windham Weaponry MPC that I absolutely find to be extremely well made and fires flawlessly with accuracy. I have a few additions to it including a EOTech red dot and magnifier, and a good amount of MOE additions (grip, forend, stock, BAD switch.

I am looking for a quality quad rail carbine length in flat dark earth. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Here's another option if you don't want to break the bank with a DD.

Both seem to provide excellent rail systems and I thank you for your advice. The links also help with being able to see their systems and pricing. At this point I haven't broken the back in this build, so I am going to pick one of this well made systems to finish off this rifle.

Thanks again.

those are both free float. unless your rifle is free float, those are going to require gunsmithing to attach. if yours is standard, look for quadrails that say "drop in"

That is not correct. "Free floated" on an AR just means that the foregrip does not contact the barrel. Some free floated fore ends do require special barrel nuts / attachments, however.

OP: Do you absolutely need a quad rail? To me they just add more unneeded weight. Forends that come with rail sections that you can bolt on to wherever you need to attach an accessory are becoming very common these days.

Troy Industries has rails like these that easily attach to a standard barrel nut for both rifles with a low profile gas black and those with a FSB in the $200 range. They also have quad rails if you absolutely need one.

Agreed...Mine feels like it weighs a ton. It's a Troy rail. Was going to sell it, but decided not to. It was mainly for a lighter one that's black. (see my thread on here about it)

I guess I should really just keep mine then. Going to be adding on some stuff to it anyways. :)
