I want to purchase a set of Picatinny Rails. Does anyone know where I can purchase some for a low price. Or if anyone knows where I can buy any accessories for my rifle. Thank you guys for any help you can provide.

Now that President Hussein is in office I rarely see the words "cheap" and "AR-15" in the same sentence :P

The cheapest and best way I found was at gun shows! We have two in upstate NY every year and you could walk in and buy the parts and build your own AR if you wanted.

An inexpensive option from Safariland ...RK-M4 Fore End Rail Mount  MSRP $42.00


This will hold your light, maybe a laser and a forward grip.  Not heavy duty metal so I wouldn't recommend it for S.W.A.T. but for the rest of the AR owners, it will do fine.  Allows for quickly attaching 3 rails to the forward end of an AR-15, M4 or M-16 rifle without removal or modification of the existing forearm

 



  • Can attach 2 accessories on the upper forearm and 1 accessory to the bottom rail such as lights, lasers, IR, cameras, bipods, or forward grips

     

  • Features a 45 degree offset on the upper rail mounts to allow for clearance for an illumination device such as a flashlight or laser, without interference with the front sight

     

  • Provides a comfortable grip on the existing forearm surface as it does not cover the entire forearm

     

  • Polymeric design eliminates the sharp points and edges typically found on metallic rail attachments.

     

  • Injection molded polymer is lightweight and economical, costing a fraction of a metal Picatinny forearm

Thank you all for your comments. I was about a day away from purchasing a set of rails for $235.00. I just purchased the UTG rails for 55. I have not been a member of PL for very long and its already paying off. lol thanks again to everyone that offered help. I think I will be using that Cheaperthandirt.com for a lot of things. thanks again!

I cannot help you on the "cheap" part.  But the best is from LaRue Tactical.

tokyo drift nailed it. Larue tactical and actually Daniel Defense has some awesome rail systems for all lengths of the AR.

I agree with the above comments.  LaRue tactical.  We got their "free-float" system on our Snipers, SDM, Team Leader & up weapons.  They worked great to let the barrel harmoics act as they are supposed to.  I use quotes because we couldnt take our front sight posts off, so we did still have some contact with the barrel.


 


Great piece of equipment though...I'd try gunbroker.com, you can usually get some cheaper stuff there.  Nothing LaRue makes can ever be called "cheap"


 


Troy Industries makes some good stuff too

I bought a set and installed these on my Bushmaster carbine last year.  Very good for the money, easy install, and rock solid in my opinion.
