Any fix for a loose front hand guard ring? The ring
rotates freely 360 degrees. I know the gas tube will
stop the rotation when installed, but the movement really
bugs me. Any fix, short of removing the perm attached
flash hider and FSB?

If you are using standard front hand guards (not full float) the spring force of the delta ring holding the hand guards forward will eliminate any perceived movement and as you said the gas tube won't let it rotate.

The rings themselves will ALWAYS have side-to-side movement with no gas tube, and without the handguards installed. You're looking for a problem that just doesn't exist; let alone a solution.

Complete the build, and everything should be just fine.

Even in my 9mm builds (no gas tubes), this is 100% a non-issue.
