Greetings Fellow Enthusiasts, When I first bought my s12 a few years back, I made an excellent decision by buying a cheap quad rail on ebay, and torqued down the wrong screws, putting two large dimples in my gas tube. Gun runs great, but I don't like looking at the gas tube. I don't want a quad rail anymore, I want a standard foreend that encapsulates both the barrel and the gas tube (all i can find only cover the barrel). A rail on the bottom would be nice, but not required. I've spent a couple hours looking, and can't find one. Can you help a newbie out?

At a local gunshow and they had some S12 parts. They had a fire group (trigger group) set and the trigger itself was stamped "Tapco". I know I had wanted to get Tromix fire control group but I couldn't remember reading stuff about Tapco's. I tried to do some quick research on my mobile but no love there. So I opted to buy it since it was 'in hand' and now I believe I have made a mistake. Searching out there it seems it can be used but has to be modified....the issue I'm finding is I cannot figure out HOW it is suppose to be modified and if it is better or worse than the Tromix. Example: If the Tromix is smoother then I don't even want to play with the Tapco...but if with the modification the Tapco is just as good or smoother then I will be happy and stick with it. Various places say I need to "shave it" to make it fit but I cannot find a walkthrough on what needs to be shaved. So, my questions: 1) Does anyone have the Tapco fire control group on theirs? Do you like it? How smooth is it? 2) Has anyone fired both Tromix and Tapco, if so how does it compare? 2) What modifications are required to the Tapco in order to make it fit? Full Disclosure: I have yet to pull it all apart and even try it. I don't want to pull it all apart if it won't work because it isn't like I can reassemble the factory parts due to having to remove rivets. Thanks for any answers.
