You might be able to get a free floating rail system.

ill second the call to bushmaster simply because there may be stress issues that prevent the use of rails on polymer recievers. your talking about removing the standard guards which are distributing weight to the barrel and reciever and placing it all at the point where the barrel nut tightens on the upper reciever. normally this isnt an issue with a standard aluminum reciever.
