Default drop in quadrail ?

ok, I got a 7"carbine drop in aluminum quadrail from a guy that's on a local state forum Im a member of, he got a AR15 and it was completely painted over, all the t marks were hidden and he didn't have a clue what brand it was, but he didn't need it for the route he was going with the rifle , I paid 25$ for it shipped, anyway he sent me a mess. saying he found out from the prev. owner [ his friend I assume] that it was supposedly a real old knights armorment co. drop in quad rail , I put it in some brake fluid to loosen up the crappy chipped up paint job and cleaned it up, the thing is it doesn't have any markings on it at all except the t, r , l , and b marks on it, just curious if anyone knows of companys not putting their names on their quadrails , or is the guy that painted over the rail lying or just doesn't know better,, the guy wasn't trying to get me to pay more for it, a deal is a deal, and I bought it not knowing what it was anyway, just curious if it could really be a old high quality rail or not

kuntreeboy,

A picture would be nice. And unfortunately not all quad rail manufacturers put their names on the units.

Sounds like it could be like mine which is made by UTG but a picture would definitely help.

Why worry about it? Whether it is top end or a complete pos, you paid $25. You did well.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

Post up a picture. But hell, if you don't like it I wouldn't mind throwing some green your way for it.

yea, I don't really care if its a 100$ or 10$ retail rail, I was just curious if so called "top end" rails actually had the name on em or not, aslong as it doesn't have MADE IN CHINA in huge letters along the side idc, even if it did have MADE IN CHINA along the side of it , I would just repaint it and know that I personally did not buy it from china
