    Got an extra gas tube that locks in extremely tight to one of my AKs and I want to weld a rail onto it so I don't have to pay $100 for an Ultimak. Where can I get like a 6 inch section of rail?

    I was about to suggest a power customs rail for a 10/22, but the curve probably isn't enough to make it easy.

    Finding steel rail is apparently not easy to do. One of the guys on pirate4x4 ended up making and selling some due to no one being able to find it online. Aluminum can be found relatively easy.

    It's an extrusion though, which means aluminum. Not sure how your welding skills are :o
