    I'm putting together a utility carbine (truck gun, plinker, home defender) based on the PSA Magpul Original Equipment complete lower and the Olympic Arms .40 S&W Upper. This presents a problem: the .40 S&W upper is M16A2 style (it has a non-removable carry handle) not flattop as I would prefer, so I'll need to mount my 1.5-4x optic on the carry handle. The only rails I have found for the carry handle are either: Made by Tapco :barf: or for airsoft guns :banghead: Some respectable company must have made these! Where can I find quality carry handle rails that will keep zero with a lightweight scope mounted? Or is there some other mounting solution I do not know about?

    Weaver makes them as well. B-square, Pro-mag, I'm sure there are other brands out there. I would NOT go with UTG/Leapers, etc.

    ARMS mounts are the best quality for your application.
