From K.J. “I am looking to upgrade my DPMS – What are the top 5 rails for the DPMS AR-15?
Good question KJ – check out these videos and our quick list of good quad rails that provide value for the money.
First off lets remind our readers that DPMS stands for (Defense Procurement Manufacturing Services) Panther Arms. These guys build all sorts of rifles out of Huntsville, Alabama.
Second – we should say that a quad rail is one of the best tricks to upgrade your weapon and add on an extra flashlight or other gear.

#5 SEEKINS PRECISION
I did a lot of research on a guad rail grip and picked up the Seekins Precision a few months back.
It arrived on time and installed it easy with out any extra fuss.
I didn’t need any tools although they may help.
I mounted a fore grip on right away and I love the new setup.
Just got back from using it at the range and really jacked with how well it felt in my hands and when going through the paces on my local range.
These are a great value for under $99 and hard to find a better deal.
We added these to our Bushmaster as a back up in case the red dot gets damaged or battery goes dead during training.

What is a good bipod for an AR-15?
We like the UTG Tactical OP Bipod.
At a price of $30 it is hard to go wrong on this choice.
We used one of these out on the range the other day and it is ok for plinking at the range.
#4 ULTIMATE ARMS
The Ultimate Arms quad rail is a great value and has several options.
I researched (hands-on, forums, and YouTube) to compare and review different rails that ran up to $200, and this carbine length model got one of the highest recommendations across the board… even though it was priced lower — most others were more than three times its price.
Check out this video below – it is a DPMS panther arms oracle AR-15. I am modifying it with a quad rail I got for $35 off Amazon.com. I made this video specifically for peeps like me that want to get a great deal but are new to firearms, or new to this particular one.

#3 TROY INDUSTRIES
I hunted around online and read a ton in the forums.
My buddy turned me on to TROY Industries that I found online at Brownells.com
He was telling me that i could not go wrong.
I ordered it and they delivered in a few days. I found that it was easy to install and adjust and it is lightweight and sturdy. I don’t have to worry so much banging it around at the range.

The MOE handguard provides for a lightweight, slim, and strong hand guard.
The Magpul rails allow accessories to be mounted to the 2, 6, and 10 o’clock positions.
I have a Mag Pul front and rear sight for the same rifle and also have a few P mags for shooting.
Easy to set up and your on the range ready to go.
#1 DANIEL DEFENSE
The Daniel Defense Rail Interface System II is SOCOM-Approved with a machined aluminum multi-rail handguard specifically designed for the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) M4A1 carbine.
The RIS II enables installation of an M203 40mm grenade launcher, while allowing the barrel to free float.
