    I have never had a quad rail on my AR's, but I got my new
    2010 Wilson Combat catalogs today and really like the looks
    of theirs. Theirs are smooth on the sides except for about
    1 1/2 inch on the front for mounting devices. The top and
    bottom are fully railed with machined slots for mounting
    sights, bipods or whatever else you want.

    Anybody out there in Black Rifle Land use Wilson quads or have
    an opinion on their rails. I have used other Wilson products
    and all have been excellent. Many thanks.

    You want AR parts, go to a good AR company.

    You want 1911 parts, go to Wilson.

    I run a LaRue 7.0".

    The flat portions on the sides of the rail are meant to give a more comfortable place to hold. The problem with that is rails get HOT without covers on them. The front portion of the sides is cut for KAC covers but the covers don't do well just hanging out in space with nothing supporting them from the back. The belief is that this rail was designed by the same guy who designed rails for both KAC and DD.

    Sound wisdom.

    Thanks for the advice fellows.

    Think I will be looking at the LaRue, Troy, and Knights,
    with the covers.

    Depending on your current config, skills, and budget, don't forget Daniel Defense and MI.
