New to this and decided to try to use this rail I found in my deceased brothers collection. I can't ask him where he got it. There are no markings on it and I have done hours upon hours of internet searching. Definitely more than I should have. Closet thing that might work is the BCM KMR barrel nut from Bravo. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I attached a link to the images I put on Imgur. Hopefully this works. http://imgur.com/a/X9jTysR

Handguard issue, please help!
XVIIINICKK posted a topic in The Beginners AR15 ArmoryI'm very new to building an AR-15, currently been doing homework on it religiously for 3 or 4 months. Have learned a lot but came across an issue I can't find info on easily; I purchased a Mapul MOE handguard thinking I'd get a barrel with the A2 front sight/gas block on it since it'll be delta ring & handguard cap capable. Now that I don't want to go that route with the fixed A2 sight, is there a low profile gas block that will allow the handguard cap to be attached to it? If so I was thinking I could still use the delta ring kit and have the handguard I like without having to settle for the fixed sight. Have been building an awesome FDE/black AR-15 so far while being cheap, so would like to keep to it on this matter. Thanks, Nickk
I recently purchased my first AR and I'm looking to outfit it a little. I've done a lot of reading the past few days trying to learn the terminology, different companies, etc... So excuse me if I misspeak. My question is, I'd like my handguard to look somewhat like the image below. So I'm wondering if this MI one piece ff rail (7 inch carbine 9.3oz) is a good choice for a Bushmaster XM-15 O.R.C.? And would it come close to achieving the look in the image? And these are the rail covers I'm assuming I'd have to use. So would that rail and those covers be a wise purchase or does anyone out there have a better recommendation? I decided on the ff because c0nspire's comment on this post. But I decided on the MI and opposed to the lighter DD Omega mentioned in that post simply because it's quite a bit cheaper. Thanks.
ALG Defense EMR 12 Handguard
md65636 posted a topic in General AR15 DiscussionSeveral months ago, I remember a thread on inexpensive handguards. I started my search and the ALG Defense EMR12 fit the bill at $140. ALG Defense is the sister company to Geissele, the trigger company. The kit contains a rail, barrel nut, shim kit, barrel nut wrench, top accessory rail, two side rails, and mounting screws. The donor rifle is a stock Sig Sauer M400, with a Yankee Hill Lo Pro gas block. On the left are the shims. The large notch on top of the barrel nut wrench will line up with the 1913 rail, it takes a couple of tries to get it indexed with the correct amount of shims. I did not have to use a torque wrench, all that is needed is a 12 inch x 3/4 inch pipe to torque the barrel nut to the final tension mark located on the left. Overall this is a nice free float rail, from my research it is extruded aluminum instead of machined. The fit and finish are nice and tight. There are no sharp edges. The directions do a good job of explaining the shim and torque procedures. I would definately purchase this again.
Which Gas Block Should I use?
Carobin posted a topic in The Beginners AR15 ArmoryHi, I'm currently building my first AR-15. It is my first gun build and first AR-15. I finished building the lower receiver this last week and I'm getting ready to move on to the upper half. Now I'm trying to build a very lightweight rifle and currently I'm looking at either a 14.5" or 14.7" (which ever I can find at the time) Mid-Length barrel. The hand guard I'm going with is the Magpul mid-length. The type of gas block that I want to use is one with a rail so I can put a folding front sight on it. Is there any specific type of gas block size, or manufacture that makes one just for that hand guard? Or can I use any gas block with a rail and be fine?
Free floating barrel value
RIGGLER posted a topic in General AR15 DiscussionHow important is having a free floating hand rail/barrel? I have a Colt AR I recently purchased...fixed carry handle and 20" heavy barrel. ..stock handguard. Because I don't like the idea of mounting optics onto the carry handle (having cheek weld issues and running into bad mounts), I want to keep it using iron sights. I'm going to change the handguard regardless but I'm wondering if I should just drop in a two-peice which would allow a simple installation and lower cost (leave front sight as is)...or....put a one-piece free floating handguard in which may require a new gas block and front sight. Do you think I can install a one-piece handguard then reinstall the stock front sight again....granted it fits? I know this is kind of an age old question but in your opinion how important is having a free-float barrel/handguard for this gun for accuracy? My gun range allows for shots only up to 250yds or so. Thanks for any help.
Colt LE6920 New Handguard
Beacon11 posted a topic in The Beginners AR15 ArmoryHello. I recently got myself a Colt LE6920 (my first entry into the rifle world), and I'd like to modify it according the following: 1. Remove carry handle. 2. Attach good optics. Future purchase. 3. Replace handguard with either JPHG-1M (12.5 inches) or JPHG-5M (9.25 inches). 4. Replace front sight assembly with a Troy low-profile gas block. 5. Attach Troy folding backup sights. I would like to accomplish all but step 2 right now. I've seen how the JPHG-1M looks on a 16-inch AR15 (see this post: Sorry we don't link other forums., and it looks just a tad front-heavy to me. I think I'd prefer the JPHG-5M, but I'm not sure it will completely cover the new gas block (and I'd like it to). Will it? Does anyone by any chance have a picture of the JPHG-5M on a 16-inch weapon? I'd appreciate any feedback!
