    I have a Bushmaster AR with an Adams Arms piston kit and handguards installed, it shoots very well and am satisfied with the operation. What I am NOT satisfied with is the drop in handguards, they are sloppy with the vertical grip so wanting to ask if the Quality drop in rails (DD, Troy, YHC and the likes) are any better?
    I held an AR at Quantico Tactical with a Troy FF rail and it was rock solid, but the price tag was almost $300 (yikes). I know if ya want to play ya have to pay, but Damn...

    you get what you pay for, you can try a 30.00 drop in rail and see how you like it. i spent the 200 or so and got a troy its solid but a friend has the 30 rail and if you dont want to cut your delta ring off like I did it works just fine

    Thanks Ops, always go by that rule (YGWYPF). Drop ins seem to be easier but I better go for the free float that accommodates the piston kit $$$$.
