As for the rail, it attaches via the receiver top screws, all four usually but I chopped the rear to fit the tech sights. Also there is a "barrel band" on the front end that clamps it to the stock, I had to modify my stock (compact) but they are made to fit the carbine. Unfortunately, it needs to be removed for serious cleaning/ disassembly, but I usually just bore snake her, until she gets real dirty. Search UTG quad rail, and you will find some info.
