Rookie mistake
« on: January 05, 2019, 06:26:26 PM »
When I added the rail section on the front of my M-Lok handguard I placed I where the bolt touched the barrel where it swells back to full size.
I found that tonight after returning from the range, I corrected it after smacking myself in the forehead. It had hit enough to leave a mark on the barrel.
 My question is, what kind of silly effects would it have on accuracy?

Plenty, no doubt. I noticed that conflict with mine and have to move the rail back a section . In addition, I would suggest making sure that the gas block is not anywhere near the handguard. Mine was actually so close, that I had to cut away the surrounding section of the handguard just to make sure it could never hit it.

Yeah, it's close all around, about 1/16- 3/32.
I can flex the bbl without hearing it hit. What I thought was the GB hitting the guard, was the bbl hitting the screw.
