Default ar-15 handguard

Hi, I am rater new to Ar's. I want to replace my current handguard (a rounded one that came with may ar) to a quad rail. I did some research and found there are a few types ; My question is ; are most quad rails universal for most Ar's ?
I have the 'Del-ton sport "optics ready'' model Ar15, There is no front sight if that makes a difference for a hand-guard. My local gun store has one on sale for $50 and seems solid for my uses. It will be used for mounting a flip up front sight and a vertical grip - as well as a flashlight . Primary use: range gun.

and advice or recommendations for a quad rail? - possibly somewhere i can get one online

-it is a standard length handguard)

There are three common hand guard lengths. Carbine, mid and rifle. Most likely a $50 quad rail is going to be a piece of Chinese junk.

Some quality rail manufacturers include Daniel Defense, Centurion, Knights Armament, and Troy. I suggest searching the forums as there is a lot of good info if you look for it.
