I am considering buying the FIRSH hand guard for my CAR. My intent is to install a scout scope. I will also be wacking off the front sight post and installing a flip up front post and rear ghost ring.

I just want to make sure that this product will do what I need it to. Can scope rings be installed on the top of this thing and will it be stable enough for a scope?

FIRSH has a picatinney rail, so if you can mount it on a pic rail, it will mount fine and dandy on your FIRSH. We sell them and use them. They work great! See the following URL on how to install a FIRSH: [url]http://www.triplebreakproducts.com/Olympic/how_to_install_FIRSH.htm[/url]

OK, now I feel like an idiot. What is a "picatinney rail"? By looking at the pictures, it appears that the entire rail is a weaver style scope mounting base. Is that what picatinney means? If that is the case, it will do exactly what I need.

Picatinney is a specification on how the rail is designed. It is the standard in the military. RRA had some out of spec ones a while back, but other than that, most everyone makes themto standard. Do a search and you will find the specification or go to [url]www.biggerhammer.net[/url] and look aruond there.
