Is the closed portion of the FH at 6 oclock? (it should be)

Sometimes they arent, it wont effect function.

It wont affect function but it's kinda ugly to look at. I just ordered a new FH to replace it.

Having the flash suppressor lined up with the closed off section at exactly the 6 Oclock may not always be the thing to do. I used to think that anytime I saw a pic in where it wasn't lined up just so it was sloppy amorer work but look at this pic and tell me if this soldier doesn't look like he knows his weapon.



On my M16A4'gery it has a tendency to recoil up and left alittle. I am considering adjusting the FS to counter act this.

Just something to think about.

I thought that was what peel washers are for...you keep adding one or two of them until the FH lines up properly.
