How to install a lower universal Picatinny Rail on a AR-15?
Can anyone help?
I just purchased a Picatinny Rail for my ar15 to install a foward grip. Can someone walk me through the installation. Its the universal lower part rail . They say its easy to install but there ae no instructions came with the part?

Is it one of these rails that attaches to stock plastic handguards?

Remove the bottom handguard.
The three nuts should go inside the handguard.
The rail screws into the nuts through three of the existing holes.

Thanks for replying
Yes it attaches to the stock plastic handguards.
That means i have to take the handguards off do i need a tool to remove the handguards?

No, you do not need a tool. Just strong fingers! It's a little tricky to do the first time, but not that difficult.

I just recieved the CAA universal picannty rail, but the problem is that the holes on my stag arms ar15 dosent match with the rail holes. Do they make a specific model of rail that fits my rifle ? Does anyone know where can i purchase it ?

Not that this necessarily helps you (unless you really want a picatinny that works with your upper and are willing to buy another), but GG&G UFIR worked with my Stag upper...
I never much liked CAA products and have had nothing but great luck with GG&G.
