    feeling is okay, no sharp corners any more. all in all a little bit softer than the panels. btw you wanted to see my project (ladders still not installed)

    hello friends, i tried to install magpul picatinny-rail cover ladders on a MI easy install two piece handguard, but this is a really tough job. is it quite normal, that you have to use mere force to install the ladders? is there a trick installing the ladders?

    Modifing the M16/AR15 Front Sight???

    thank you, you doing exactly right :smile: i examined my rifle a little bit closer and think i got the problem. the locator stub on the barrel fits the notch in the upper receiver, but either the stub is canted on the barrel or the notch is canted in the receiver. is this common or at least known as a problem? is it okay to take a small jewelers file and file the notch a little bit bigger in the right direction, so i can now align my front and rear sight? what to do with the space in the notch on the other side, 'cause the notch would then be a little big to big and i fear that if i crank the barrel nut, the barrel will move in the now bigger notch and rest in the same position like before. what can i do to lock the barrel in its new position?

    Modifing the M16/AR15 Front Sight???

    that's right, here in germany even the general-dealer has no idea of repairing AR-15s. so i have to do it all by my self. if i correct the front sight housing a little bit to thr right, will i have problems with the gashole? what if the gashole in the barrel and the gashole in the frontsight housing are no longer aligned? i heard that the gashole in the front sight housing is larger than in the barrel and small side-corrections should be no problem, is that correct?

    if they had overtorqued the barrel, would i have problems with the bolt closing and locking in the barrel or something else? malfunctions etc? the rifle works fine and shoots quite well, but i have that canted front sight base and a canted flashhider, the slot in the middle of the flash-hider, that should be positioned exactly upward, points a little bit to the left, like my front sight base does.

    could it also be a problem with the barrel fixed the wrong way to the upper receiver? what do i have to check exactly to see if the barrel is fixed the right way in the upper receiver?

    thanks a lot :smile: is a clamp-on front sight base available that looks like the standard A2 front sight base or just clamp-on front sights with flip up front sight? what about the holes in the barrel, have the screws on the clamp-on front sight base to fit in those holes or do they just clamp in a circular mode around the whole barrel?

    Modifing the M16/AR15 Front Sight???

    hello folks, i'm new to this board and want to say "hello" to everyone. hope you can help me with some questions concerning my AR type rifle. here in germany they are very rare and hard to get items. it is a sabre defence XR-15. as you see i'm from germany and english isn't my mothertounge, so i hope you don't mind my hopefully not soooo bad english. please be forbearing and patient with me. my problem is that the front sight housing is leaning a little bit to the left (looked in the direction of the target). i thought i can change the front sight housing to one without tapper pins and drill holes for screws in the new standard A2 front sight housing. i read that a slanting front sight housing is quite often a problem with AR type rifles, is that true? now i'm looking for a detailed description where to drill the holes etc. will 2 holes from beneath the front sight housing (through the bayonett lug and through the rear ring of both rings be enough and keep the housing in place? i don't want to use the tapper pin method, cause i fear that my new front sight housing will be leaning to the left as the old did, if i use the tapper pin holes in the barrel again. so i read something in the internet that it is a common method to drill screw-holes inside a new front sight housing and fix it with screws trough the bottom of the barrel-rings of the front sight housing. but i have no idea how to do this. is there anyone who can help me, give a detailed description or can post a link to a homepage where it is described? thanks for your help best dusty :smile:
