Pins on the ruger are not standard. This means that you need to select a gas block that will be secured via screws.

Else just cut the sight that comes with the ruger

I just put on a tri-rail from Ruger and it just goes over the handguard.

I originally bought a UTG Pro extended rail with the space for the FST cut out. And had the same problems. What's worse is it came damaged; the rear was no longer circular, it was oval and looked "squished." I got a full refund and still looking for a quad.

In the meantime I bought a CAA rail that' supposed to mount with the factory vent holes on a standard handguard. This too didn't fit, but it's been over a week with no reply from atlanticguns.com on giving me a refund so I said to hell with it and filed out part of the hole til the peg fit. Of course the back end of the rail had a stop on it so I cut that piece off in order to install my MFT magwell grip.

Sniper Steve,

What did you have to do to the acutal UTG pro U416S rail to get it to fit on your AR556?! I just got the UTG pro U416S rail in and can not get it to fit at all. Please help me with this if at all possibe.

Ruger ar 556 quad rail

I bought the NC Star quad rail... about $30 from academy.

Fits perfectly... Fired about 400 rounds so far and all my attachments are still snug.

as far as attachements.. I went crazy.. 6 flashlights (1 green and 1 red the rest... just lights).. 1 laser. grip w/ bipod inside... scope... green/red dot scope and riser for the scope.... and 100 round twin drum magazine w/ bump fire stock.

looks a little ridiculous.. but.. I had room left on the rail.. so I kept adding..

it's like legos!

I received the UTG U416S quad rail for Christmas as a gift. I too can not get it to fit properly on my AR-556. The top and bottom rails are off center and the back end at delta ring does not go together to get screws in. Any help would be appreciated. Update: After some online research and reading these posts, I spent about 15-20 minutes and was able to get it to fit properly. It was a matter of getting the screw type delta ring into the right position.

I really like that handrail, that might be my next purchase for my AR556.

Bud's gun shop has it listed for $103

I just thought I would show a picture of my AR-556 with the UTG 416S Quad rail properly installed with a GG&G bipod on it.
