This is probably the easiest rail option I have seen assuming you still want the stock front sight.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I appreciate it. I'll give the AIM rail a try. Crossing my fingers it's a simple drop in. Only thing that makes me worried is it practically looks identical to the UTG one I currently have.

That's about $80 more than the UTG 4/15 which fits perfectly on my LM4.  (See the earlier messages.)  I may have had to muscle it on, but don't recall any modifications to either the gun or the forearm.

An AR15/M4 rail is massive overkill for airsoft.

Well seeing as how the rifles are intended to be "training rifles," do you see the advantage of having the same furniture on both an AR and the LM4? The feel of the weapon is what most people are after... The same controls and weapons manipulation is what many if us are after.

The LM4 has the same controls and manual of arms as the M4 less the ability to extract the BB in the chamber.  It comes set up like an Issue M4 and will accept all the M4 things I've thrown at it.  

An exact duplication of the rail system isn't mandatory for me as any rail will mount reproduction accessories, hence my use (and recommendation) of the relatively inexpensive UTG 4/15 rail.  I don't see any reason to run a $600 Aimpoint CompM4S either -- although there is one on my M4 :) .

How you got that UTG 4/15 to fit is beyond me. It literally will not fit in the barrel nut. I'm contemplating taking a dremel to it to see if I can get it to fit.

Try posting a few pics first before you chop away. I have the same rail as Chuck and I have never had any issues mounting it on any rifle.

FINALLY GOT THE BUGGER TO FIT! There is nothing a dremel can not solve. Ended up chipping away at the grooves that meet with the barrel nut to allow it to seat in the next groove down, still ended up with one groove separation on each side, but it's not noticeable, the delta ring slides over the rail system now, and the screws were just long enough to keep the whole thing stable. Thank GOD that's over with.
