Brownells 75th Anniversary - A Shooting Heritage

Assembling Mil Spec & Free Float Barrels - Section 5

This section is broken down into two major types of handguards: standard and free floating.

The standard handguard clips will show you how to: assemble the delta ring, install the barrel, align the gas tube, install your handguards, flash hider or muzzle brake, the front sight and the rivet mounted sling swivel.

The free float handguards clips will show you common methods for: installing the barrel, aligning the gas tube, installing your handguards, and installing either an aftermarket gas block or a mil spec front sight base. If you need to install a flash hider, muzzle brake, the front sight and/or the sling swivel then watch the segments in this section that details them that follows the standard handguard installation.

It is important that you follow the order of assembly; this will avoid interference of parts, eliminate rework and allow for proper and cumulative function checking of subassemblies.
