    The US Palm/Midwest Industries rails have a good reputation.

    Anything made by UTG is questionable quality.

    Buy once, cry once.

    I bought some UTG rail covers one time that were total crap. However the reviews on this seemed pretty good so I would youtube it and see what comes up.

    Those are nice, but consider the Midwest Industries rail too. Rock solid and well made. Worth the extra money. Here is one on my Mini SBR with a KAC handstop. They have regular AKM versions too.

    I always thought, that adding rails to the guns of the AK family stunk to high heaven, but that actually looks quite good.
    Very low-key and restrained. Nice job.

    Thanks. In general I am also not a fan of adding rails to AK variants either, but the hotdog bun handguard that comes stock on the Mini is not exactly traditional to begin with. I do have a second Mini that I will keep stock to serve as a donor gun if my SBR ever needs parts. I stained the wood, but other than that I am leaving it alone.

    I had originally planned to put a US Palm/MI rail on my AMD 65, but then I realized all I really wanted to mount was a flashlight & forward grip. Since the forward grip was already there, I bought a chunk of rail from YHM and attached it to the already slotted forend with some hardware from a Tek-Lok. Mounted a Surefire G2 LED in a V-Tac clamp. Looks very clean & works great.

    Obviously, if you want to mount a MRDS, you may need the quadrail, but adding siderails to the original forend is a cheap alternative for other accessories.

    That would probably work, too, if they're the right size. I used the Tek-Lok fasteners 'cause I've got bunches of them. The heads of the screws fit the counterbores in the rail better than the ones supplied with the rail. I filed a couple flats on the female half of the fastener to fit through the slots in the handguard properly.

    When I realized the screws were bottoming out before the rail was tight enough, I used a couple of the rubber washers to take up the slop & make the mounting shock proof. So far, without any kind of thread locker, it hasn't rattled loose under use.
