Took it out a little further today and w/ the barrel rested on these little rubber blocks they have and a 4MOA H1 we were holding respectable groups at 100 yards. Yesterday, at much shorter distances, a slight improvement in accuracy was noticable. I really like this new SS upper but don't plan to shoot it much.

They are basically the same rail. The one on the LW 14.5" is a 13" Troy Alpha w/o front sight and the one on the 16" SS is a Troy VTAC 13".

If you're wanting a nice light solid rail either is a good choice as well as the Samson rails. All are under $200. The DD is undoubtedly top notch but probably more expensive.

Already posted but one of my favorites.

Is the Omega worth the money? I want to go free float, but I don't trust myself change it over (don't have many tools). Any advice you can offer?

I have no experience w/ the Omega but from what I know it is a drop in rail. I believe it uses the stock barrel nut and delta ring but doesn't require attachment at the front. Youtube Omega Installation.
