scoutjoe 273 Posted January 11, 2007 Report Share Posted January 11, 2007 Please Keep in mind through this entire bit of typing that this is the way that I did it, also I randomly misspell words so take it as a rough set of directions not the bible. (Also keep in mind this was sent to see if someone with little mechanical ability could pull it off). Dinzag has not endorsed these directions, so you can wait for a typed set or just read... That disclaimer being out of the way on with the pictures minus the packaging (and the 12 gauge shell) this is what you get in the mail And thats what the retainer looks like in pieces That is a Saiga x39 ready for some AK handguards, now if you can't get to that part look up "handguard removal". Ready to begin? Lower handguard slides in like so That is lower part of the retainer on the lower handguard, My lower's "spring" was quite stiff so it took some grip to get the retainer to stay put. That is the Upper part of the retainer threaded (just barely) onto the lower part of the retainer, To get this without going a bit nutts I actually slid the whole retainer assembly forward off the handguard to start the screws, then I pushed it back on. The middle screw in the top of the upper handguard is loose at this time Sorry about the fuzzy pics but I can't see to find (if there is one) a setting on the camera for close up shots. What is going on here is I was screwing down the two outside screws (the ones that were just threaded so I could slip the assembly back onto the lower handguard). Take it slow and try to line up the lower part of the retainer and the upper part of the retainer so the gap level. Once you have the gap leveled out make sure those screws are tight. Then take the smaller allen wrench and tighten down the middle screw once you have the retainer seated on the handguard (In my finished pictures you can see a gap still). Ready for the upper handguard and ta-da one mechanically non-inclined college bound monkey way's of making Dinzags lower retainer fit Quote Link to post Share on other sites
