The trick is to only attempt one side at a time. Pull the bottom of the delta ring down (dont' worry about the top) and pry the lower handguard out. Repeat with the top handguard. Good luck!

Angle the Delta, either UP or Down...do not pull straight down. and/or call a friend to help...don't be embarrased, most of us have at 1 time or another. or Buy the tool that I believe Midway/Brownells sells.

Support the butt end on a hard surface like a table or floor, desk top, etc. Then pull down the delta ring with one hand as far as you can get it and hold it there and with the other hand take half of the handguard and work it out from the bottom (delta ring side) first and remove it then repeat for the other half.

Getting them off is the easy part. Wait until you try putting them back on... You'll probably want to do a search here for the answers prior to starting your project! As I recall, best way is to 1) Call a buddy over to help hold down the Delta ring. or 2) Exercise like mad so that you have really beefy arms and hold it down with one hand or 3) Get the aforementioned tool and 4) Remove all children with sensitive ears from the area

I remembered reading a post a while back about making a handguard removal tool; so done a search and found it. [url]http://quartz2.cyberstation.net/~dwpaul/hgrt.htm[/url] This is a page that "dropdbombnow" put together. Looks like its pretty easy to make.

30 plus years have gone by, but we used the buddy system in ROTC and at Fort Sill!

Seems like I have better luck removing tight handguards with the upper separated from the lower.If you haven't already done that give it a try.
