I got a good deal (way too good to pass up) on a BO Stabilizer Handguard with the rail and hand stop. My question is this - I have not seen ANY info as to what type of barrel nut they have or even how they attach to the upper. Search turned up nothing too. Any ideas or a pic of the mounting system?

Thanks!!

Here is a quick description from Badger's site:


These are fantastic handguards! you won't be disappointed!!
Here is a pic that I use a lot on this board just for bragging rights


Custom JNR PAC-NOR 20Tact barrel upper I built( it also is in the gallery on John's site)
got this before he became mainstream!!

I hope this helps

Good Luck

I think I can handle that - no problem! I looked all over their site and never saw that, thanks!

BTW: that is a fine looking rifle you have!

I got the handguard in yesterday and put it on last night. MAN that is simple! And it looks GOOD! It does take a little time to get it all lined up correctly.

Nice piece of gear!!

Sweet setup on the barrel nut!! You can set the torque to as much as you want . Well worth the setup time!!
I also love the long flat bottom of the handguards. Great for shooting off of a rest or sand bags!!

Have Fun

MAN that is one sweet system! I shot the rifle in a match last Saturday and here is my CB shot and 4 follow up shots at 235yds. And this is a colt 1/7 gov profile factory barrel!



Not that it is a good pic, but here is one I was sent after the match if my rifle:

I like the looks of the BO and I'd say its great on bags.

It rides on bags just like Beavertail forends. Good foreend for a fun gun, useless for anything but a rest though.

Sweet rifle BTF, what scope riser is that?

If your are asking about my rifle, the riser is GG&G GS-1 Scout riser rail. I love the BO for both offhand shooting, shooting off of bipods( sitting and prone) and benchrest/bags. They feel great in the hand for offhand shooting. the brad flat bottom makes easy to shoot with your support hand in tight by the mag well. Or further forward( sometime I wish I did get the target version w/hand-stop!!). BO"s also makes it nice to shoot from of spur of the moment rests( fencepost, stump or irrigation pipes...etc.)

Just my $.02 Worth

Good Shooting,

Stuart

Nice shooter.

Wow, that is sweet, that is almost what I want to build. Give me some specs, what kind of upper and barrel and all and where did you get it all from?

Most of it is parts I have had for a while.

Colt 1:7 barrel
RRA upper and Bolt/carrier
Preban Colt match target lower
Colt trigger
Magpul PRS stock
Badger Ord rail
Cheap scope riser rail with Leupold PRW rings
Leupold MK4 3.5-10x40 M3 scope
TAC-16 suppressor
DPMS gas block
Harris Eng. bi-pod

with the 7 twist barrel it really likes the 75gn hornady bullets and heavier

How easy was it to install the gas block? I have never done this before.

Simple. Just make sure you get the gas port lined up with the hole in the gas block. You can just simply mark your barrel with a strait line and a pencil. Use plenty of lock-tite on the screws on the bottom. Good luck!
