I have heard mad bulls fit so I would think most rails fit.  I bought an Avengers 12inch. I thinks it's OEM is LaRue tactical.  I got it in the mail today and will be trying to get it on in the next few days.  I'll report back.

I think all real steal non-free float(models) rails should work, most free float rails should work since you need to take off the delta ring for installation.

Yeah,  I looked up how to do it.  Seems pretty straight forward.

Note:  You need to be careful with RS non-free float or 2pc front rails.  Many will require the front sight to be move forward about 1/8".  See here: Posted Image

The top gun is my trusty KM4A1 (old picture) with a YHM 2 pc front rail (Real Steal).  Note the front sight, also YHM.  It is slightly forward to allow for proper fit.

Ok thx, I bought this http://www.airsoftgi...oducts_id=15515 a while back so if I were to do a RS rail it would work.

It should.  In fact, I had one similar to the one you linked to prior to the YHM.  It's a little tricky getting everything aligned.  But once you do, set the sight on the outer barrel and forget it!

The Avengers rail fit okay.  The piece that bolts on to hold everything super tight needs some modification to fit. Right now it's off,  but the rail is really solid.  Just thought I'd give an update.

You mentioned modifications? For the gun or rail.

The rail, delta ring,  and barrel nut all fit perfect.  There is a small piece in the shape of a c.  It has a notch to fit against the receiver,  but it was too skinny.   Also,  two Alan bolts go through this piece and thread into a spacer on the other side or the barrel nut. These bolts we found to be unable to line up properly because it looks like it hits the receiver,  not allowing it to seat all the way down so the bolts go in at an angle and the do not thread in.  I believe  this part is to further secure the rail.  With out it feels solid enough.  No wobble and it's really tight.
