"I love and hate this rail set. I use them on my Magpul PTS 7.62 AKM CQB AEG. I will start with the good. The rails themselves are excellent quality and exactly what you would expect. Everything in this set is made from high quality materials and has a good finish. I haven't had issues with them falling off or coming loose, but I haven't mounted anything really heavy on them yet. They make the handguard slightly more difficult to put on the gun, but not enough to be an issue.
Now for the bad. The screws and plates have poor workmanship, the plates especially. Neither my American or Metric hex wrench sets would fit the screws. I ended up using a 4mm because it was the only thing that even vaguely fit them, and I had to really work it to get it deep enough for me to turn the screw without stripping the head. The plates were drilled to fit the screws and flower out the back. I had to break off some of the flowering (and the channel for the screw) to get these to fit in the spaces on my handguard. This was very difficult because of the high quality materials, which is reassuring, but despite my efforts it was still very difficult to actually get the rails mounted. On top of that, actually getting the plates to sit flat against the inside of the guard was also a pain because of the flowering, and possibly the angle of the channel for the screw. I tried flipping the plates around, but the flowering stuck out to much for me to get the handguard back on, and i'm sure the flowering on the plates on the bottom of the guard would tear my batteries if I could get it on. I feel that these could have been made a LOT better.

Pros:
High quality materials
Excellent finish
No wiggling
Perfect rails

Cons:
Poor workmanship on plates and screws.
The flowering of the plates make it very difficult to actually mount the rails.
The Hex size for the screws is slightly too small for a 4mm hex wrench and doesn't fit anything else.

Conclusion:
If it weren't for the high quality materials, I probably would have returned the whole rail set. I don't expect any problems with these now that they are actually mounted, but getting them mounted was FAR more difficult then it had any right to be. However, the quality materials these are made from means I may never need to replace them.

"Works great on my A&K Masada. The other reviews must have installed it the wrong way as I had no trouble with the screws, and I didn't lose any battery space. If you get longer screws it will interfere with the battery. Overall very nice quality and very sturdy.

"This is one of the best accessories you can get for you Masada, ACR, or Magpul M4 Handguard. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you want to use flashlights, lasers, grips or other attachments. The reason I recommend this rather than the $90 RIS System for the Masada is because it is cheaper ($70 difference!), high quality (CNC Aluminum), and the rail space is spacious (especially the bottom rail!). I use it on my A&K Masada and it is amazing. There are going to be a few flaws of it though. You should beware that the screws that are provided are kind of short and do not fully fit the A&K Masada Handguard. I went to my local hardware store and picked up the same type of screws that are a little longer and those worked perfectly. The screw sizes were the Metric M5 .80 Hex head screws that are the same size as the ones provided. If you are unsure that they will fit the rail, just bring the rail and the screws that came with the rail and compare them to make sure they fit. I found them in no time.

Pros:
-Cheap (Save $70 by buying this than the MASADA / Magpul PTS R.I.S. System. RIS also has less space.)

-Quality Built

-Easy To Attach (If you have the right screws)

-Lightweight

-Looks nice

Cons
-The screws provided don't fit the A&K Masada (Buy the longer version of the screw at hardware stores)

-You have to put the side rails more towards the receiver of the gun or else the handguard won't fully close and you cannot put the pin in to connect it. (A&K Masada)


Overall this is one of the best products I got for my A&K Masada! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

"Pretty good, but only the bottom rail fit on my A&K Masada without interfering with the battery. I'm not sure what is wrong but be cautious when installing these. But they are really strong. Overall, pretty good.
