    Looking for a rail bolt that will bolt on factory handguards. Any recommendations or anyone have one for sale?

    You mean adding a picatinny rail to a regular G.I. type hadngaurd? Not sure if there is an option for that? But you can swap out a G.I. type for something like a magpul one.

    But i might not be understanding either..it is early and pre coffee fo rme :)

    you get what you pay for.
    Cheap af optics will have garbo glass, bad sight pictures and may give you stds


    though fwiw primary arms isnt toooooooooooooooooooo bad if even vortex is out of the budget

    Id pass, those are aimed more at the airsoft crowd. Id go for an entry level vortex, primary arms or bushnell.

    Could also look for used and stretch your budget further.

    Both good places to watch.

    I put a 1X6 Monstrum on my most recent build - had spent more than originally intended on the build and decided to start with a scope that was a bit lees expensive with the intent to upgrade at some point. I'm actually satisfied with the scope so far - easy to work with, clear glass, construction is good and it holds its zero. Unless it goes south on me, I will probably keep it.

    any of yall had to deal with an upper that was wonky and made all rails put on it misaligned with the barrel?


    Cause....i thought my rail was fucked so i threw on a BCM MCMR on my aero upper...both are crooked in the same way, so i'm assuming it's actually the upper

    two different rails, both are offcenter at the end, leaning towards the left. thought it was a barrel nut mating issue with the first, but it's the same with this new rail...
    top is the new bcm mcmr, bottom is the old stngr hwk

    Wow! That is severely off. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that. Can’t imagine the bcm is out of spec, or the aero upper really, but I would start by trying a different upper receiver.

    How does the mating surface between the upper and rail look?

    The hwk was completely flat and aligned as far as I could tell. The bcm seems to be ever so slightly off

    This is what I would do. Loosen the mounting screws on the bcm rail, and gently tap the muzzle end with a soft hammer/mallet see if you can seat it better, my bcm rail is touching/flush with my upper

    Edit:
    I re read your post about 2 diff handgaurds, sounds like an upper issue.

    Second edit, cuz I’m drinking. You didn’t bend the barrel did you lol
