What would be the best extended accessory rail for the M4. I would like a rail to extend way past the larger M4 handguards withour touching them. Has anyone found the right rail? If it has a built in rear sight it would be a bonus.

The best extended free floating rails I believe are A.R.M.S. but the M-4 handguards create a clearance problem. Ask yourself, do you really need the double heat shield M-4 guards, which are meant to cut down on thermal signature, or? If you need the M-4 guards then dremel the upper one for clearance, any plastic material removed will covered by the rail anyway.

Rocket, I believe the GG&G rail clears the M4 handguards. Maybe someone can verify that??? Scott

I'll answer myself... According to GG&Gs website, their rail clears M4 handguards. It doesn't have a site incorporated, but apparently leaves room on the rear portion of the flattop to mount one of their A2 or MAD flip-ups. Check it out here: [url]http://www.gggaz.com/page11.html[/url] Scott [uzi]

I do not know of any with an U.S. GOVERNMENT NSN # like ARMS rails do, but could be wrong!
