Which rail?

I cant decide which of these two rails I like more. I like the standard one cause its slotted down the whole rail.

But I like the notched one too. Its not as comon so thats a plus and its just more realistic to me. But does not have rail slots in the center.

What are your opinions?

I always go for the closest to real steel where I can.
I would personally go with the bottom one because even though you probably won't use the middle rails with a scope anyway, the cylinder might reflect the sun with the open one and give away your position. Either way to me the one with the notch on it just looks strange, although maybey I'm just not used to it.
I like the top one cause its real steel looking too. But it does kinda let the cylinder be seen REAL bad,lol.. I planned on making a bolt cover and make it look more real and cover the chrome. I think the lower rail would help with that cover but I havent started yet. I just cant decide what one looks cooler and I hate not being able to make up my mind.
I think when you put the scope on it, no one is going to notice the difference. It is like if you are making something out of wood and you accidentally scratch something ever so slightly, you will be the only one who will see it.
Right,lol.. I really need to cover that super mirror like bolt though. It'll give me away in a heartbeat!
If you must have the top rail you can put a piece of tape or something over the opening to the cylinder during games.
I don't know what internals are in the gun you plan on putting that rail on to but there are laylax and PDI cylinders which aren't that bright chrome.

Another thought would be to Ghillie wrap the gun which I would use to cover everything up but the stock.
I want to get a black teflon coated cylinder someday when I win the lottery or something. Haha but yeah I will rig something up. I like and dislike ghillie on my rifles. I have to go through the trouble of taking it off to get into my rifle but I also dont really need to after I get my new piston. Right now I can sometimes get away with spinning my piston but I have to take it apart to do that. And ghillie catches on everything I walk within a 10 ft radius of. I am also extremely fearful of ticks in my ghillie. I played at a game a few months ago and the place was infested with effing ticks! I was finding them suckers for weeks after the game in and on my stuff. I hate those things man,lol.. I feel like having a ghillie that had ticks is like getting a wig that you know had lice. Makes me not wanna wear it very often. I like my rifles setup in the living room near the tv for when I get tired of watching whatever the ole lady wants to watch or for commercials. I stare at my rifles thinking what next kinda sweet thing I can do to em. I plan on making another adjustable cheek rest in a few days for my kids rifle. Will make mine after I get more paint cause this glued on cheek pad will rip my paint to death and need to repaint a few spots before I make mine. I will get on my idea for a bolt cover tomorrow cause I am planning it out on my head as we speak.. I will of course take pics of my work so others can see and maybe try it too. Gonna try and lay down now, night guys.

About that tick problem, All you need to do is after a game check yourself for ticks. Chances are if a tick does get on you, it will take several hours for them to actually bite you. then it will take some time for limes, IF they have it, to infect you. I have gone on many camping and survival trips and have found at least 20 ticks walking across me at once. Just picked them off and I was fine.

I would only get a new cylinder if you somehow become rich, or like you said, win the lottery. If you are looking for the cheapest piston you can find, leave the cylinder alone.
I prefer the top one, but and the other one if it was like this one..

It would kicks @ss!!

I was pulling ticks out of my ghillie for weeks after the last time I used it. I feel like I dont even want to put it back on now,lol.. I know it takes awhile before they bite but I still get creeped out by em. I ended up garbage bagging the ghillie and setting it off in the basement till whenever. I have been working on a different one for a bit now. Just a little at a time.

As for the rail on that rifle "George" That sucker is efffin sweet!
