Rail that attaches to the bottom of a standard 20" ar-15 upper? I'm looking for one for my dad to mount a sling stud and maybe a VFG later on for his rifle. Nothing fancy, it will likely not see battle but something that I can throw an accessory or two on the bottom. I've looked at pro-mag and falcon industries rails and they don't look much different from each other. I don't want to spend more than about 25 bucks on this either so cheaper is better.

I have a real nice one...I have no idea who makes it, this is what it looks like.
I also have a small cheap plastic one you can have for $10 shipping included if you can't find something..

This is the metal one..this is what you are talking about?

You got it! I'm trying to get something like that for a full length rifle handguard in metal. Pro-mag makes them but I think they only cover half the handguard for some reason.

The MI one is on midway and I like to order from them when I can. (I started a hating their new home page thread awhile back but its getting better and much faster) and their shipping is usually really reasonable.

I can tell you that the rail is solid...The screws stay put. It will wobble a bit but thats only due to the handguards and the play they may have. Some are worse than others.

Do you guys know if this short one: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=413029 will fit most vertical grips? I'm thinking about adding one too, but would like a smaller rail if its long enough for a grip.

Really depends on the grip. I've seen some with a small enough mounting bracket to fit on a rail that smal, but there are many grips with larger mounting brackets. Might want to get something just a little bigger.

sorry if i am an idiot right now but how do those things attach to the regular round handguard?

If you have heatshields, take them out temporarily and it has a little rail that fits along the inside of the handguard that the rail bolts down to. They're pretty self explanatory when you see one.
