Ive built and bought an AR in the last month, both with full quad rails. One I needed the all the rails, the 2nd I preferred the size of the quad rail with Ergo covers on them. Another trend in rail land is to get them as slim as possible and I supposes I just don't prefer slim rails.
I have decided MLOK for my other rails as it seems like it will eventually, if it hasn't already, become the more popular option.

Yeah, the one thought that comes to mind is that it might add a bit of comfort to shooting a .308. Other than that, what gets clamped to a side or bottom rail that really needs a mounting surface so stable that only a handguard with machined-in rails will do?
