How to Install the UTG Pro Super Slim Free Float Handguard, 13-Inch

Some Installation Tips:
– Make sure to install all your Magpul MOE Rail Extensions BEFORE putting on the barrel. The ones that come with the hand guard screw in fine from the outside.
– Put the hand guard on AFTER you tighten the muzzle compensator. The handguard messes with the contour of your upper block.
– Remember to tighten the handguard, 6 bolts, very tight, otherwise there will be a lot of wiggle on the handguard.

Please note, that I think I put it on the wrong shoulder. Being right handed but shooting left handed becomes confusing for me. But I wouldn’t say there’s any “right” way to wear it. Whatever works for you.

Installed canted sights and replaced low profile gas block with a dual rail block. I’m left handed, BTW.

UPDATE 12/27/2013
Switched out to the UTG Pro Slim Handguard.

Here’s a picture of it with all the attachments (minus the bipod which I’ll put on later)

ORIGINAL POST
At the bottom is the shopping list for the items I purchased to build my first AR-15. For the Upper and Lower Components, and for a 20″ Barreled AR-15, it cost about $700.00. Building your own, even if it’s just purchasing pre-assembled uppers and lowers, is the most cost effective method. I probably would had gone with the pre-assembled route, but Palmetto State Armory had Black Friday deals that were so good it was more cost effective for me to build it from scratch.
