this is taken from a e-mail to a friend of mine but I thought I would see what you folks thought about it let me know........So I finally got my Arms mount the 39A2 gooseneck type. its real nice and well made (no doubt for 125$) but the "brush guard" deal is wuss maybe they made it that way for a reason but I thought is was way wussy fast forward 1 work day and I made my self a experimental-fix check out the pics it is a piece of 1/4"CD flatbar and a small piece of 20ga.CD sheet all cut,shaped, and drilled by hand then tig welded nothing fancy it took about 20 minutes or so. I bought it home and gave it a quick blue job it is certainly more stout and the little 20ga. piece slips under the handguard cap and the part screws into the end of the ARMS mount. the original metal clip screws into the mount and rests on top of the handguard weak or I'm a dumbass and it has some special purpose .............(hopefuly ar15 folks can get a visual on this if not e-mail me and I'll send you some pictures)........................ I would add the pics but I anit no real member

i guess i have to ask why? it's just a stick and leaf "deflector" not a cattle guard. you are not gaining anything with the extra strength and if it touches something like the hand guard it may cause the mount to torque a little and throw your optic off. i didn't mount mine because i thought it was not necessary.

Ya I may have been on crack ha ha but I didn't care for it hanging out in space like that ..the way it was the little brush tab was pushing upward slightly on the end. I think it would take a total disaster for it to get tweaked now but it may have been some over zealous non-problem solving.."Cattle guard" very interesting choice of words for a Texan by and by the leaves and twigs are like a jolly green jungle round these parts [booze][:o)]
