I agree! A billet lower for under 100$! You can't go wrong.

I have YHM diamond rails on my AR and I like em. Im sure theres better out there but Im happy with them. They feel a little heavier than some other rails, but I really dont mind it. Ive never used their barrels so I cant offer any experience there, sorry.

If you talked to the dealer and they told you it was it probably is.
