Just got my YHM HG's from Brighflashlights....and they look great. I know how they go on, but anyone find anything to make installtion any easier? I don't have a HG removal tool, and from what I've read so far they're going to be tight, so I don't want to start with the dremel. So what you guys found that makes installtion a little easier?

You don't need that tool. Just get a buddy to help with them. You'll get em on. Then post some pic's.

I have them and I recommend getting the tool in case you want to remove them and have no one to help. The tool is well worth the money.

Definatly get the handguard tool. That way you won't scratch your delta ring upon assembly, like I did.

Well, it took a dremel and a rubber hammer to get them on, but they are solid. I had to open up the slot that goes around the barrel nut quite a bit, and take some off the the front end, both on the top piece. Beat up the barrel nut and the delta ring a little, but aluma balck took care of that.

I plan on getting at least two more sets, but if they're like this pair, I'll have someone more skilled than I am to install them. Great handguards, at a great price. Calvin at BrightFlashlights.com is great to do business with!

I had major problems with mine so calvin and I decided on the FF tubes since it was such a hassle. And I can't be more happy!! Calvin is excellent to deal with.

+1 for Kevin and Calvin at Brightflashlights. Those guys kick ass. I jusy got my hand guards yesterday. Went on without modification. I did it myself with a padded benchvise holding the FSB.
