Either a 1/9, or a 1/7 should do you fine. You'll probably be using 55 grain rounds most of the time and both twists will do the job.

You are referring to the "foregrip" as the second pistol grip. Rails can be added to some handguards or later you can put on a quad rail which gives you four rails to attach accessories.

Call RRA and ask them if a rail can be added. If not, ask what options they have so you can have a rail. They should have other handguards available.

Nice looking upper by the way.

You haven't said what your budget is but this is worth taking a look at if you want a stainless steel barrel: 1/8 twist, stainless steel 16" barrel, Surplus Arms upper (lifetime warranty), SAA mil spec bolt and carrier, charge handle, 1 rail gas block, Magpul MOE handguard for $372 shipped. Magpul sells rail attachments about $8 each, that screw onto the handguard. They also have an angled foregrip about $28 that is real comfortable which goes on the rail.

*Surplus Ammo & Arms Complete M4 16" Upper Receiver Assembly - Surplus Ammo

PAlmetto State Armory has some in stock and on sale, you can google complete uppers and see what comes up. There are some out there, but uppers from Spikes are sold out everywhere, Bravo Company has some BCM's in the 14.5", Del_Ton has an assortment available but it's taking time to build and ship.

Just ordered myself a Palmetto State Armory 16" Premium Complete Upper with MOE handguard and MBUS for $470 + $15 shipping. I am glad I put my order in as soon as I could because it looks like it's already sold out again after 2 weeks on the website. They have some combo deal right now for the standard complete upper with lpk and stock kit. The only difference between the premium and standard upper is that the barrel on the standard is made out of 4140 instead of 4150 steal like on the premium.
