    The customer service I received from Larue when I placed my order from them for a lot of shit was great and I will recommend them to everyone. Plus the fit and finish on everything they sell is amazing.

    My midwest industries non-free float 2 piece works pretty well. If free float isn't a necessity......the MI stuff wouldn't be a bad choice.

    I'm not worried about money just don't want to purchase something just because it's got a name on it that doesn't mean crap...

    right, because there is nothing good about the products they make other than the name they slap on it.

    like i said, there is nothing wrong with the troy and its $157 shipped.

    Troy makes good shit. Check out Spikes Tactical and yhm lastly...

    With Larue products you get what you pay for. They also have the best customer service I've ever received from anyone in the firearm industry.

    YHM makes a good inexpensive rail. Even their free floats are only around a hundred bucks or so.

    You can get them here. They start at 99 and go up depending on the length. http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/SearchResults.asp

    I've got one on one of my ARs and its worked just fine. Held up fine, hasnt come loose and no reason to think it will.
