there ya go. carbine length. under $40 and outstanding quality. I have this one and a yankee hill machine. I actually like this one better. i highly recommend. Drop in installation and rock solid. The cross bolts give added strength and the slots are numbered. I paid $140 for my yankee hill and will never do that again.

It looks good, so,there really isnt a big difference between the 40$ one n some that r up over $100 as long as they r made of same material?

I will say this: the $40 rail was easier to install, feel like better quality in my hand, has numbered rails, and cross bolts for extra strength than my $140 yankee hill machine rail.

My yankee hill machine rail required some fitting and filing to install, has fake cross bolts, does not have numbered rails, and provides a rock solid mount.

The gmg rail required no modification to install, has reinforcing crossbolts, has numbered rails, provides a rock solid mount.

The yhm rail is of excellent quality, but i prefer the gmg rail based on features and price

Ive never had a single problem with my yhm rail. I own one. And will never buy another. I have never had a single problem with my gmg rail, i own 4 for different rifles. If i need another, it will be gmg.

I doubt you would see much difference.
