I got a new set of wood furniture I'm putting on my AK right now. How hard should the pin that holds the lower handguard plate on be? I'm putting a new lower handguard on an Arsenal. And Damn I'm having a time putting it on!!

Should that little lever easily come down? Or should it be pretty tight?

Ive had them be real simple to close and some a real bitch...just depends on the gun I think.

I can't figure out if my lower handguard is just a bit too long and needs to be sanded down a few hundreds of an inch or if it's just that tight?

I was always taught never to force anything! When putting together a gun. But damn this hammer is looking better and better every second

Some of mine are tight some aren't but I would think better a little tight than loose I guess as in anything.

I learned the hard way never to force this lever........I broke it on my first build.

One way to help is to take a small non-marring hammer and tap the front plate towards the rear. If the handguard is just tight, it will help the lever close. If the handguard is too long, the lever will still be tight and won't close.

When I'm playing with the lower handguards, my small hammer is always present.

That's what is it guys. Lower HG is a tad bit too long. Sanding it down now.

Thanks.
