    Anyone know where I can get an after market quad rail for a decent price? Almost every where ever I've looked they want $180 to $300 for one. Or am I just S.O.L ?

    Got my Yankee Hill free float for a little over a $100 on eBay. Midwayusa also has them at decent prices...well, they did. Not too sure about now.

    I found some on Amazon.com for around $30. I'll have to find some reviews on the makers but it says they're aluminum so hopefully it's good quality.

    Dunno about $30. I'd shy away from a $30 quadrail. Probably make of pot metal (weak) and heavy. Of all the ones I've handled I really like the Daniel Defense Lite. Its really light and nice to hold, BUT very expensive and hard to find.

    Goodluck!

    Those are better suited for airsoft than the real deal.

    Save some money up and buy a quality piece.

    Don't cheap out on components for your rifle. Find what you like and spend good money on it. Crap parts add no resale value to your gun and you're gonna have a big fat sad face when your cheap AR15 takes a big fat crap on you.

    I hear you. I didn't think quad rails would be that expensive but it looks like I'll have to buck up and dish out some cash. But like they say, you get what you pay for.

    Well guys I didn't get a quad rail, I couldn't see spending $160+ dollars for one. I ended up getting a mag pul hand guard and mag pul hand grip. Hopefully it holds up we'll see.

    The MOE handguard is a solid piece. I don't think you'll be upset with it at all.

    I like it alot and compared to being $35 versus $160 / $200 for the quad rail type I like it alot better. I'll post some pics when I get it all finished.

    Yep the MOE is solid and a bargain. I have two and no complaints.
