I was wondering if it would be possible for me, without any real gunsmithing tools or skills to install a daniel 7.0 rail on my upper, it has a normal sight on it? Or if I should just leave it to the wonderful professionals over at Adco to take care of it for me? Also I have no real skill in this area so if it is complex I would rather let them do it then ruin my rifle.
Thanks

You are capable of doing it, but it does require special tools.

Take a look here and see if this seems interesting:

Even with the propper tools removal of the FSB is very difficult without damaging the FSB. I had to cut mine off to get my FF RAS on then put a PRI flip up in its place.

How so? I have done a ton of Bushy's and one Colt.... I could not tell any difference? Whats special about them that makes them tougher?

Cool! I dont think I have done an RRA come to think of it. What kind of pins hold the FSB in? Just straight ones?

I am pretty capable, and have most tools needed but I would not and did not even think of doing my own install

Too much at stake- dollar wise as well as quality wise.

$60 is a small price to pay for the results I got

Why do you have an armorers wrench, and a receiver action block, if you arent willing to use them?

Thanks for the information. I went ahead and had the people at Adco put one on my upper, it was there getting a vortex. It does not look too complicated but I don't have the necessary tools and also I am not all that great at putting things together or taking them apart. I figure that by doing it this was I will save myself money in the long run. Thanks again for the info.
