I ordered a arisaka indexer, but after installing my handguard I realized that the screw placement is not going to work. The gas block is preventing the second screw from locking in.

The arisaka indexer was perfect size. I want to put a stop in the last slot to prevent my fingers from going too far forward, being the handguard is close to the end of the barrel.

Anyone have a recommendation for a handstop that would work with this slot?

I know it is cheap but the UTG has become my favorite. Fits and feels great.

The dimensions might not allow it to work, but you could mill a partial slot towards the muzzle just large enough for the forward mounting screw. Drill and a round file would work. Structural strength could be a concern.

Take a look at the magpul mlok handstop kit.  Maybe you can use parts of it to make something work.

This looks like it might work.

I used it on one for the same reason as you and it worked well.

The offset screw should line up perfectly. There is some clearance under the gas block, the screw tab is just barely too tall.

I think it would. You can install in either direction.

I really like the railscales one - I believe it is single screw but unfortunately it is out of stock at the moment, but I plan on buying more when they are available:

Are you able to just shorten your second screw by cutting it down with a dremel, or is the Mlok nut itself interfering? I've trimmed Mlok screws with success to fit in tight places.

It's the nut itself.
