    I'd say if you we're building a new rifle, to install whatever you want...and go for it. But, not to sound negative, but if you are asking people on here if you should DIY...or if "special tools" are needed...then you probably don't have the tools or skill to safely pull it off.

    On a positive note, most gunsmiths will charge less than you can buy the tools to DIY for. I'd save the stress and send er' off to a competent gunsmith.

    Why would you put an UTG rail on a Colt rifle?

    They are illigetimate weapons that have no real purpose other than to attract retards to the gun community.

    Because that's the proper way to do it. Do yourself a favor and read the "stickies" at the top of the AR General and Technical sections.
