Galil Handguard Loose

Recommended Posts

Actually on my 20, but...   Forget the make on my guard, either Tapco or Tromix.  I have the "U" shaped bracket at the front and that seems fine, but the rear tab that slides into the receiver body is SUPER loose.  I don't want to bend the receiver slot to close the gap as it seem too big, and saw a few hokey fixes online.  Aluminum foil "gasket", glue soda can spacer into the receiver slot, etc.


Anyone have any better tip?  Maybe something like an accurizer wedge on an AR?  Or simply a rubber sheet bent over the plastic tab to form a gasket as in the foil trick above, but "better"?

Fixed this with a fairly thick foam rubber self stick pad cut to fit.  Wrapped it around the tab like a "U" and stuffed it in.  Holds snug now, much better.  The gap looked huge, was guessing at least 1/4-1/2".  But measured it as only 1/8".  Sure looked and felt bigger!
