is it really metal? if it has a plastic body, then shouldn't that be plastic as well?

Okay review, could have had more content in it.
Even my TM clone which has a plastic body came with a metal RIS ....

I wouldn't know, cause you know, I've bought a TM M4 two years ago and disassembled the eff of it, upgraded the internals myself. Then put a metal body, RAS, Crane stock. Ya, I would have never guessed, , thanks for explaining all those wonderful painfully obvious facts to me.. I appreciate it.

By the way, it's spelled "explain", not "explane".

Don't worry, you were never a smartass in my mind.
He probably never knew you own a TM... /troll?

It's the fact that he assumed I was a misinformed dumbass.

I think you've misunderstood... I'm not talking about the RIS RIS, I'm talking about the rail on top of the plastic body, which for all the universe know, it's not called a RIS.

What RIS RIS? There's only one Rail Interface system. It covers the handguards, and the top of the receiver.

Need more?

The rail is typically placed directly on the weapon's receiver, in the position normally occupied by the rear sights. The rail's cross-section is shaped roughly like a wide T. Scopes are mounted on the rail either by sliding them on from one end or the other, or by means of a "rail-grabber" which is clamped to the rail by means of bolts, thumbscrews or levers. - Wikipedia.

NOW, in case you're too lazy to read that, here it is cut down:

The rail is typically placed directly on the weapon's receiver, in the position normally occupied by the rear sights.
Where are the rear sights? Why... on top of the receiver.

Proof

Sorry, I take great offense when people assume I'm a misinformed dumbass.

I'm sorry Inade, but I don't think I can believe you much when the website title is called "Picatiny Rail". by all means, that is NOT RIS.

There's a link on that page saying "Rail Integration System", and that's the RIS.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rail_Integration_System

If you are too lazy to read that, then here you go.

"There are different styles of RIS, depending on how much the operator will be accessorizing the weapon. Basic systems that can be installed on weapons such as the previously mentioned AR-15/M16 are usually small rails with holes machined in them that are screwed onto the existing hand guard on the rifle and can cost as little as $25 to $40 USD. More advanced systems allow for numerous accessories to be mounted simultaneously and cost an average minimum of $200 USD and up for a decent quality system."

ITS the HANDGUARD part.

If you are just so blockheaded and would absolutely not accept the fact, then here's more proof.

http://www.mountsplus.com/miva/merch...RI/PRI-050-062

It's called a flat top rail.

Sorry Inade, but I take outrageous offence in people trying to look like a smartass but don't even take the effort to read the website title.

I don't know why you guys are trying to make me look like the bad guy here, I'm just trying to correct you. And then what I get in return is people trying to argue with me like there's no tomorrow.

It's fine by me if you wanna look like a dumbass calling it RIS, but I will tell you right now it's called Flat top Rail.
