Default Looking for a AR15 hand guard..

I am looking to replace the forward hand guard on my Stag model 1 AR15 and wanted to check and see if anyone on here had one they wanted to get rid of before I ordered new.

There are a few variables you might want to list like length, style, full float, etc...

You just want to add a quad rail?

Is your rifle a carbine, or midlength?

Do you want a free float, or is a 2 piece ok?

yeah i just wanna add a quad rail for some accessories and I'm pretty sure its a carbine length. Im new to the Ar15 world so I'm not really sure what the difference between a Free float and a 2 piece rails are. Advantages or disadvantages.

a free float is more expensive and more work to install, but will give your rifle more accuracy, two piece are simple to install, cheaper, and you can still hang things off them, how far are you shooting? What kind of a barrel do you have?...

I installed the UTG two pc. quad rail on my left hand Stag M-4 last week. Went on in five minutes and is very solid. It came with rail covers and is made in the USA. As mentioned above I got it from Midway for about 50 buck.

There are not many options that are both two piece, and free floating. Your best bet will be a Daniel Defense Omega rail. 2 piece, uses the stock delta ring, and barrel nut, and installs nice and easy.

Dont put UTG airsoft junk on your rifle.
