looks like a rip off of the DD EZ CAR.

I would go with the MI 2 piece gen 2's, they are well known, most pistons fit under them and the price is right.

Agreed, the MI gen 2s are GTG.

I noticed those out on THE WEB also. They look a little less chunky than some of the other low end rails. Do they list a weight on listing you bought from?

I received the rail today and installed it on my AR. I was really suprised as to how easy to install it was, it mounts just like the DD EZ Car quads.The rear end most part of the quad halves have a cut out where the Barrel nut fits into, then it is simply tightening up 4 hex bolts to press it tight up against the barrel nut.Once I tightened down the 4 hex's, I could not wiggle the quad from side to side.There was no weight listed on the ad on Ebay but I can definately tell you it is much lighter and slimmer then the UTG, I do not have a scale so I can not give you guys ax exact weight.The one thing I noticed is that the top rail of the quad did sit even with the height of the rail on the upper,but there was a slight gap between the two rails so it DOESN'T give it the monolithic look because of this gap. Maybe I did not seat the barrel nut fully into the recess of the upper half of the quad rail. I'm gonna try to remove and reinstall tomorrow to see if I can get a better fit between both the top rails.Even if the gap still remains, I am very pleased with this rail. My M3 and rail mounted bipod mounts nicely to the rails and have no wiggle. Over all finish is very nice, the rail markings are clean and nicely done. The quad did not come with rail covers, but for the price paid, I did not expect them. I will post pics hopefully tomorrow.

I didn't even notice the tightening feature. Definitely a DD esque copy.

Perfect for a low cost build.

I got mine today. It looks very nice and fitment is very tight. No need for the set screws.

But...of course there's a but!!!

It doesn't sit square because of the way it sits in the delta ring. It might need at little sanding on the edge. And line up is not that good if you are picky. When I tried to put my m68cco across both rails to try and cover the gap and the dot went totally off at only about 15 yrds. It can probably be shimmed, but why go through all that. See the pic with the red box.

@E81, mine doesn't have that problem like yours does in the red boxed pic. It's even with all aspects of the upper receiver rail , you can see that it is even in my poor, no macro on camera pictures.. You may want to make sure that the grove in the inside of the rails are aligned with the barrel nut and also make sure their is no cant on it because on the top of rail picture you posted it doesn't look centered and looks canted,Also how does the other side look?

If the quad rails are centered, you may want to try using the locking screws and if that doesn't fix it, contact the seller on Ebay before you start sanding it down.

I thought about using the screws to center them last night...I'll try when I get home today. In my bottom left pic, you can also see that the width of the rail doesn't match the the upper. It's a little short.

don't get me wrong, for the amount paid I still think its a good deal.

Mine arrived today.

Seems very well made for the low price.
Can't tell you how it fits as I won't assemble my next rifle for another month.
