Ruger Precision Rifle (Enhanced) Handguard?

I'm personally a fan of the Gen 1 handguard over the new version that omits the top rail. (Per speaking with Ruger they said they were uncertain if they would continue making the Gen 1 version in favor of the Gen 2 Enhanced version)
From the pictures I've seen in looks like there are holes on the top of it to where you can add rail sections. Can anyone confirm you can add a rail to the top of it? Pictures would be appreciated!
Also is the handguard nut for the new rail be compatible with the older Samson handguard?

As far as I can remember on my V2, the top holes aren't threaded to screw in a piece of rail. I thought this would be a viable option as well but I guess not. I could be wrong as I just got mine a couple weeks ago.

I too share your preference for the type 1 HG. Who makes the Gen 2 HG for Ruger? They would know if it is possible and if they have the rail. Ruger does not address the rail in the Ruger store.

Samson does make upper picatinney rail sections for the Gen 2 RPR in 2", 4", 6" or 8" sections. They are held in by a drilled and tapped bracket which fits underneath and within the curve of the upper part of the handguard. Go to Samson's website -
Evolution Accessories: Samson Manufacturing

This will allow you to add iron sights or whatever.

OR
You can buy a complete handguard sans the connectors. Just unscrew your gen 2 handguard and slip it off. Slip on the handguard with the complete picatinney rail and put the screws back in. You now have a Gen2 with the Gen 1 handguard. The handguard is the RTR-15 for $145.
RTR-15: Samson Manufacturing
