the numbers get larger going from the receiver towards the muzzle. Most AR rails that I've had started at 12 or 14 then started going up from there (because the slots on the flat top count). If the rails are labeled R,L,T,B, you are correct... right, left,top, bottom. What type of rail is it?

Im not sure as to who made it, I bought it off Gunbroker.com and came with no paperwork. On mine I put the t,b,r,l on the corresponding sides, but it goes R14 at receiver and goes to R02 near muzzle. im confused lol, If I switch is around I dont see how I can have R on the right side
