Does the M16 M5 RAS by Knight's require more work to install then just snapping off the old handguards and replacing them with a new handguard. I don't want to have to screw around with replacing the front gas block.

Thanks in advance.

It is slightly harder than the standard handguards, but the FSB does not have to come off.

No, the general principle is the same.

Except there is a clamp that slides under the barrel nut that you will have to tighten with an allen wrench. Its possible to do by yourself, but recommended that you have an extra hand. But its a 5-10 minute job max.

As long as you remember to loosen that pesky clamp fork allen screw, it's a ten minute job. If you don't, much swearing will follow, until you RTFM .

Thanks guys for the reply! Now, if I can find someone who has them in stock I'll go ahead and get one.
