i just order a 16 in m4 upper from lmt with a low profile gas block. I was looking to get the troy 10 inch rails and was wondering if there is anything special to the install....any removal of a delta ring, etc.

Once you swap out the gasblock, all you have to do is hack off the delta ring assembly with like a dremel tool. Just be careful and take your time so you don't go too far. It's pretty straight forward. I installed my Samson MRFS-R on my carbine and it didn't take long at all.

I installed one for the first time a few weeks ago and it is not hard at all. Just cut the delta ring, pry it off with a screw driver and bolt the rails on in its place. They come with detailed instructions so you really can't mess it up

No more complicated than a SIR-M and they are lighter and less expensive (and the rails actually follow the spec).

If you can't use a dremel cut of wheel to remove the handguard ring then perhaps wrenching on your AR isn't for you. It's a 15min job.

I used a cut off wheel not a dremel. It was harder than if I used a dremel but I didn't have one handy. good luck

I installed a Troy MRF-C on my CAR4 Tac. Upper and the surgery only took about 20 mins. (had to take my time to ensure that I didn't go too far); after that, the install is pretty easy, just put the upper in, install the lower rail locking pin in, tighten the 4 Allen screws, then slide the lower rail and that's it.

Pretty straight forward, eh?



Here's my little carbine with the rail already installed.

That is the ugliest franken-AR I have ever seen.

Since some of you guys have the Troy rails, do any of you know if a Gemtech HALO will fit inside the inner diameter of one of these rails?

A goofy question, I know, but I'm thinking of an SD type short upper and I really like the troy rails.

Shooting USA/Sighting In did a "How-to"segment on installing the Troy rail a while back, andmay have a link to the show available via their web site.

To each, its own; I like it and that's enough.

Hmmm. You have a point; perhaps I can leave the bipod off when not needed.


Like this.

Always a noble and a gentleman, Stick.
