Good day guys
My 1st post here and I'm thinking I came to the right place. I got some KA front guards and could not get them on. Problem is the front, that metal insert makes the front guard sit up too high and guard will not slide under/into that retainer. I looked at the instructions and it only referances the rear...it shows the front easily sliding right in! Anyway after scratching the top of the barrel from that front thing I figured they weren't for my gun and just removed the front and rear metal hardware.. they then went on easy and fit great!
Problem is now after I installed a light/laser on the bottom rail the bottom handguard is loose, so I'm guessing those parts are needed after all
So what is the deal here guys? If you look at just that front insert you'll see it fits in the foward retainer tight all on it's own, how could the extra materal from the hand guard fit possibly fit? Do I just "force" the front guard on and bend up that front retainer???
Thanks in advance AK
