I'm not exactly a buff guy, and that delta ring has a shitload of tension. I look like an idiot trying to prop the thing on the floor for leverage while I use both hands to pull the thing back and kinda knock the handguards off.

Any better ways?

Yeah. Don't take them off. I don't.

I had to just to see how the little bipod I have attaches, in which I probably won't use anyways on a 16".

A couple of years ago, one of the guys on this board invented a simple tool thay makes the job much easier and can be accomplished with one person. Search around and you will find that several companies have ripped-off this guy's design and are selling them now. Sorry. Can't remember who.

Wow! Lots of responses almost instantly.

use snap ring pliers to move the snap ring back. then the delta ring will have no tension on it.

The handguard removal tool rocks.. I have one for those moment s when I need to remove or install handguards.

I have to be honest though, I usually do not remove them. Just once in a while to wipe that area down for rust prevention. During normal cleaning I just leave them on. If my rifle gets wet or dusty, I take them off then as well.

The handguard removal tool mentioned above saves a lot of foul language for more applicable situations.

Just use a pair of rubber coated pliers, clamp the handles around the delta ring and pull back..........

Just pull the delta ring back and knock the handguards against the edge of a table. Easy and free. If you think that's hard, try taking off triangle handguards with an A1 style delta ring. PITA!

I bought enough unthreaded rod to make two. It was actually pretty fun to make! I used it to install the tight CAR handguards on my Bushy upper build and it worked like a charm. The Army calls for a "buddy" to help you out. The same buddy that probably takes your firing pin retaining pin or the cam pin when you're not looking
