    Hey, looking for some help on a picatinny rail.

    I want an aftermarked quad rail for my M-4/AR-Carbine. I do not want a free float aluminum rail, I feel they are too heavy, too much trouble to install. Also I would like a plastic type rail that won't cut into my hands without rail covers, they are either too loose and always fall off, or too much of pain to remove.

    I saw a set at a gun show a while back, I cannot remember who made them, but it was some tati-cool outfit. I don't think they were too expensive. I have looked all over the internet and can't find them. They were two peice plastic covers, the kind that replace standard type covers, they had a type of picatinny quad rails, but being plastic they were rounded off on the outside edge, but deep and squaired off on the inside like a standard picatinny rail. They were real comfortable and did not cut into your hands, but still held lights and stuff.

    Does anyone know who makes or sells these. No big deal I'll just go with a typical after market set if I can not locate these. Thanks

    I like CAA Products. They get the job done.

    I am only doing battel with empty coffee cans and paper targets that will never shoot back. Ha Ha. So long as the flashlight and verticle grip don't fall off from recoil I am happy. Thanks for the links.

    I would suggest you take a look at the magpul plastic handguards. They have slots to install rails only where you need them. Magpul is a good name in the AR world and they are not too expensive either. I intend to get some for my AR, I just haven't gotten round to it yet.

    TACAV; Thoes grips were exactly what I was looking for but to be honest they are about as pricy as a cheep free float set up. I know UTG rails are less than 1/2 the price. Also, I know TAPCO is inexpensive and they make good stuff.
