I have the carbine length Tango Down rail guards and now need shorter rail guards due to the adding of accessories. Has anyone had luck with cutting the Tango Down's to make them shorter or would it be best to just buy different ones. I have been eyeing the KAC panels since you can get them in various lengths. Thanks in advance

I cut my KAC's with this:


I imagine the TD's should be about as easy, just cut straight and clean up with some sandpaper.

I'm not so sure that those will do the job. The ones that I have will have to be cut with a dremel, band saw, jigsaw or something along those lines. There is no way I could cut mine with scissors.

I know, brain fart!

I was thinking of MagPuls for some reason...

Mitre box and saw make nice straight cuts.
Stanley sells a cheap yellow plastic mitre box and saw combo for about 8 bucks.

I used a small saw, taped the end that I wanted to cut with painters masking tape as a guide. When I was done, I used a bench grinder to smooth out the edges and round off the ends. Worked for me, it may not for you.

I used my compound mitre saw with a trim blade installed.
