    They are ok, easy to install, but IMO they are TOO FAT, especially with raill covers installed. YMMV

    I agree they are fat compared to some of the higher end rails like KAC and Daniel Defense, but the MI is not much fatter than the standard grips on an M4. To me that's not really a big problem. The Non-free float rails were loose on my Stag M4. I really felt it when I mounted a bipod and vertical grip. I recently switched to the MI free float rail and its solid as rock. Bottom line is that MI is decent, and a good deal for the money. Sure there are more expensive and better rails out there but MI is still pretty good.

    I just put it on my M&P15 a few weeks ago. They are very east to install. I had never changed out a handguard before and was able to do it in just a couple minutes. I didn't realize how east they were to change until I went to youtube.

    Which do you guys think are better-quality 2-piece rails: Yankee Hill or Midwest?

    I'll throw a 3rd company in there. Troy. I just installed a set of DI rails from them and it took 3 minutes. They don't move, I am very happy with them.

    They seem fine to me, although I guess I would like them a bit narrower. As some have said, with rail covers they are a bit thick.

    YHM is good stuff, but MI is better.

    Have the MI 2 piece on one carbine. Little bit of wiggle that probably wouldn't bother most people, but of course it does me. Anyways, weight and quality are top notch. I went with the OD for this set-up, the color is not as outstanding as I would have thought. Bottom line is I will keep them- for this project anyways...
