How to install a free-float handguard

Brownells gunsmith Mark Hudson demonstrates how to install a free-float handguard on your rifle.


WARNING: Do not disassemble or reassemble a firearm unless you are absolutely certain that it is empty and unloaded. You must visually inspect the chamber, the magazine and firing mechanism to be absolutely certain that no ammunition remains in the firearm. You should always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when disassembling and reassembling a firearm.

    Which version of the barrel removal kit do I purchase? I read the description and it mentions removal of barrel alignment tabs? Where would these ‘tabs’ be located? I took some pictures where the upper receiver and the barrel/shroud meet? I could send them to you, if you’d like?
