    How much of a quality difference is there between Yankee Hill Machine Co. and UTG quad rails as well as other accessories?

    I have a Yankee Hill carbine quad rail, I think it's great quality. I hear the main drawback is the weight, mine is the older version. They now have some that are supposed to be lighter.

    IMHO YHM beats UTG hands down... which one did you pick up the other day?

    I have a UTG Quad Rail that seems to do its job. It has a nice finish to it and holds things. I gave $60 for it and it has not let me down. I think the cheapest YHM I saw was almost double at the time so that is the only reason I went with the UTG.

    The weight on ours seems perfect.


    YHM. Feels like a quality piece.


    UTG rails I looked at online ere half the price. We are thinking about getting another AR or AK for my son since my wife "stole" his :rofl:. So, the search is on.

    This might be off topic but, as Southerners doesn't it bother you to have something named YANKEE Hill Machine?

    I kind of refuse to buy something if it has yankee in the title.

    I’ve had a Yankee Hill Lightweight Specter Length Forearm on my AR for several years and I love it. A buddy of mine broke a UTG not too long ago. He had the front point of his sling attached to it and snapped it in two putting tension on it. It seemed like a decent piece besides that. I’ve heard of other folks doing the same thing to much more expensive RIS’s. I’ve got a UTG on a Cetme and another on an AKM, but neither support the kind of weight that some free floated AR models do.

    I have the UTG on both my AR's and think the quality is great and as some one else pointed out..........at least half the price of YHM. I would highly recommend the UTG.

    I have a UTG Quad rail and am only having mixed feelings because of how much I have already spent on the lower alone... I haven't opened the box since I am not sure I am going to stick with it or try and get something else before the rifle kit arrives.
