There wasnt a short rail with a couple screws that came in the box with it? They usually do but it has been a while since I bought one. They might have changed it. Is this the one that Is a Troy rail being made under the VTAC name? Or is the JP rail that is being made under the VTAC name? Either way you can go to Brownells or Rainiers and find accessory rails for your handguard and attach them then attach whatever you want.
