All of the ones people mentioned are nice. You can also check out Diamomd Head, they make my favorite. I've built 16 AR's and this rail is my favorite. It is light, has finger groves underneath, you can add additional panels, triangular shaped, it feels natural , and it looks different from the rest.

That rail is sweet if only I could justify putting that much money on a $400 AR

bought it from a buddy paid $200 cash and traded him some work for the other $200 can't beat that!!

15" rail on a 16 inch barrel is no problem. It actually looks great and it gives you the longest sight radius you can get on a carbine.

What caliber is that, 7.62x39? That mag looks like an AK mag. Nice rail too. What does one run? Also, is that the same manufacturer who makes the BUIS?

Yes, that is a Samson rail. The 15" Evolution to be exact. It's a very nice rail. I'm certain you will like yours when when you get it.

The longer rail is better? I'm quite new to free float was looking at the 11 in due to price.

Currently have cheap but rugged UTG quad rail its just to damn heavy need something light I can put front sight on and vfg im keeping it simple

It's 7.62x39, I built her from scratch. The mags are AR upper mags welded to AK lower mags with AK spring and follower. It has no feeding problems at all. The rail cost me $169, it's a 10 1/2" rail. The sights are the Diamond Head sights. Those are a bit pricey, any where from $199-269

It's only $169 , that cheaper than most, and in my opinion better. Also the proprietary barrel nut is awesome, you don't have to time the gas tube at all, it goes over the nut.
