that holds the front of the handguards, right behind the gas block? The exploded views both here and in my field manual don't name it. (I have one made for triangular handguards that I need to switch.)

And while I'm at it, how do you tell an A1 buttstock from an A2?

"Handguard cap", thanks.

Next question: The barrel originally had triangular handguards, that's why I need to replace the handguard cap for the new symetrical ones. Will the handguard slip ring be compatible, or were those different as well?

if this is a 20 inch barrel you dont have to change the handguard cap or the delta ring. Just change the handguards.

It is a 20-inch barrel, but the handguard cap is definately triangular, not round. Is there something I'm missing?

It is pretty cool. Little nubs on the front of the handguards fit the handguard cap, interchangeable either top or bottom.
