Soooo thats no good..

Recommended Posts

So went to the range today which was great but now I am trying to reassemble after field stripping and cleaning. That front hand guard latch (which was a gigantic pain in the ass to open) just will not go past being even with the rear sight. Any tips or ideas?

Ok I was able to get it back into place with a couple of taps with a rubber mallet but that latch is still totally inop by hand use only. Is that something a good gunsmith or perhaps a forum member/merchant could fix?

Use the slot on the side of the cleaning kit tube. Put the slot over the lever and use as a handle. All the the slots and holes on the cleaning kit are there for a purpose to use with the tools and rod. Make sure the latch is flush, in the opening. There is a pressure plate on the gas tube that needs to compress (push towards reciever then push down).

I placed a dot of red nail polish on the bottom of the tube so if I see the red dot after putting it on I know it's on wrong.
