That's from the old stuff made in China. They have had a new plant in Michigan for the past two years manufacturing rails. They have lessened the weight and they are much stronger than before. I had one of those heavier rails, though heavy, it was very strong, tight, and fit perfectly.
I have a new one now, way lighter, fits perfectly, looks good, made in the USA, and last weekend I beat the heck out my rifle on a hog hunt. Two days of swamp buggy rides, in and out of blinds, stands, and through the thickest stuff I've ever been in. I actually have a scrape on the side of my RDS just above the rail. Everything is still nice and tight.
There was a nice write up in Guns America magazine too.
And, one of my guns has a Magpul foregrip, one has a Troy, and the UTG on my hog gun, so I don't have loyalty to any company unless it works for me.
