    Troy vs. MI rails

    I've been thinking about getting a railed handguard for my m4. I know free float is where it's at, but no free float will be fine for my applications. I'm going between the troy mrf-di and the midwest industries MI#17. Is there much of a difference between the two in terms of dimensions, attachment, and the like? I'm just wondering if the troy is worth the extra cash.

    The Troy rails are one piece. The MI are 3 pieces. The main rain and two end pieces allen screwed to the rail. The Troy is better quality and a simpler more durable rail IMHO.

    I purchased the TROY MRF for my 16" LMT and have been extremely pleased with it. It locks up tight and gives you a free float option without having to remove the front sight base. Much better than the midwest product, Just my .02

    If I went with the troy mrf-di would I see any accuracy degredation since it's not free float? I just have a red dot on it right now, but I might put a low power scope on it someday.

    The M4 is a combat carbine not a precision marksman weapon. The MRF-DI will neither detract or enhance accuracy. Even a FF rail will have minimal impact on accuracy enhancement, at least for the types of shooting the M4 was intended.

    Both are good. The MI is a little wide. I've read nothing but positive reviews of the MRF DI from Troy.

    I have a Troy 7" rail on my first AR and it's very robust. That said, it's heavier than a DD Omega/Lite and LaRue.
    Good Rail for the $$.
