I am looking to replace the Samson rail on my Ruger Precision Rifle. AR-15 barrel nuts will screw into it, however there is an additional Ruger barrel nut between where it will go and the receiver. Therefore if any rail other than the Samson is used, this will happen:
I'm wondering if I can get the SP3R to work, but had a few questions:
Is there a gap between the SP3R rail and the upper receiver? If not, how is the gap eliminated?
When the SP3R barrel nut is in place, how much gap is there between it and the upper AR-15 receiver?
Can the SP3R barrel nut be reversed and then installed?
Lastly, can someone get the measurement from the top of the picatinny rail, to the INSIDE of the bottom of the SP3R? Should be around 2.00" or so.
Can anyone get me a picture with the SP3R barrel nut and titanium nut installed, but rail off?
I'm thinking I can install the SP3R barrel nut backwards, and install the rail so that it extends beyond the nut. This length should be enough to cover the Ruger barrel nut.
