    I'm looking at getting a new rail for my AR.
    My first question is: My rifle is carbine length so I'm assuming I need a 7" rail?
    Secondly, there seems to be a big jump in pricing for rails. I really like the UTG model with the clip on plastic hand guard pieces which runs $70 bucks. However, you look at something like a daniel defense and it's up to $280. Any opinions on this?
    Also, should I try and go with a free float style rail or since I only have a 16" barrel would a free float even be an issue?

    Thanks for any input.
