Recently ordered a 308SS 15-DLM direct from y'all, received it on Saturday. Swapped it onto my rifle this morning (changed from a 12" lightweight from JL Billet because the AL barrel nut kept getting loose) in short order. This hand guard was unopened and there was no plate in the bag o' parts so I thought I'd ask. I do like how the hand guard has the index pins to locate the hand guard on the barrel nut.
I did use the adhesive that was supplied.
