I want to add a rail system to my M4gery but I don't want to spend a ton of dough or send it to a gunsmith. What type of options are there that just replace the handguards with rails. I don't need to mount optics on it, just maybe a VFG and a light, maybe a bipod sometimes.

Thanks fellas, the MI look exactly what I am looking for.

+1 for the MI rails goe 'em and like 'em.

Keep in mind that the low end rails are not MIL-Spec. They work most of the time.

I could mount lights and optics to mine even and level, but could not wedge a TangoDown forward verticle grip. But great for the price IMHO.

I have the MI 2 pc rail and love it. Much better quality than the YHM.

Can you mount optics to this MI rail?

I have a surefire m73 forend and it works well and was pretty cheap.

I just got the MI rails for my 20". They are solid. I got them from Bravo Company USA.

You really shouldn't mount optics to an NON-FF forend. However, if all you're worried about is CQB and/or keeping it on a pie plate to 50y or so; then a red-dot on a KAC, MI, or YHM would work well enough.

What is the most inexpensive but nice FF that I could mount a Eotech on my A2 shorty? I saw a set of YHM ones for under 100 but do they require removal of the barrel?

I got a MI on my M4gery aswell.And it`s be doing pretty damn good.Can`t go wrong with MI.

Troy MFR-C at $210. But you'll need to dremel off the Delta ring & associated hardware if you don't want to remove the barrel.

I have the MI MCTAR-17 on mine. The fit and finish are great.
