finally got things all together guys! god am i so happy. hopefully next weekend i will have time to get her to the range. the upper was bought at my area gun shop, used, but never fired. Rock River Arms with Daniel Defense (or so i was told), freefloat system, and the Rock River Combat Riser. only thing i need to take care of is the gas key stakes. they are not that great to say the least. lower consists of M&P stripped lower, DD LPK, Magpul MOE stock and grip and trigger guard. oh and the best part...total price: $850 all said and done!

I thought that at first but I don't see that exact railed forearm on YHM's website.

I haven't seen a YHM with the slotted holes in the rails.

I was thinking it was a YHM too, because of the looks of the locking nut at the rear. Maybe RRAs are contracted out to YHM.

Good find. I spent a few minutes looking around to see who made it but couldn't find it.

It's made by Yankee Hill. They machine the rails for RRA, at least they did as of a year ago.

They are definitely, absolutely, YHM manufactured rails. RRA specs them, YHM builds them. It's not a bad thing, just the way it works.
