Im starting to build my AR but I need some advice on what will be a good free float rail that I can get for a good price. I was looking into the Samson star c rail and the DD Omega 12.0 fsp rail. Any other suggestions?

Would it also be wise to get a railed gas block or just stick with the front iron sights?

Thanks.

if you're on a budget, i'd go with Troy unless you can find a good deal on DD.

If you're building your rifle from scratch, then absolutely go with the DD Omega X 12 FSP. Best bang for the buck right now. $180 and only 15 oz. on a 12" rail - awesome. I love mine. Stick with the FSP if you go this route...

I'll definately take all these in consideration. Thanks for all the help guys. Trying to narrow down my decision on my own is such a hard task. So many to choose from and I just want to get some suggestions to know what will be the best way to go.

If you're installing it yourself, you will need this, DD barrel nut wrench

I'm not familiar with Jerry. Is Jerry one of the Calgun member? Thanks

Hey if ur still looking for a rail system ,I have a samson star c rail 7in free float system that I purchased last week . I got it for my stag's model 8 piston AR but it did not fit, it's a railly good rail and it's very lite too ,it's has a tiny nick on it but it's not noticeable other then that it's in great condition and it's the new version with the S cut out and the new take down pin design. I paid a total of $310.00 for it and in selling it for $210.00 shipped or $200.00 pick up, I'm trying to sell it so I can buy one that fits my stag's piston AR. Please get back too me .Thanks ,Jose.
