There are rail sections you can mount through the holes on a standard a2 handguard. Thats what the military did there arent any i know of that come formed with a rail. Just aftermarket add-ons

Troy and Daniel Defense make great drop in rails to get you the look you're going for or you can hit up Colt for the proper rail.
