velcro is cheaper.

Out of box thinking. Actually, just walked around the house looking for stuff, hence:

Result: SS Clip (perfect fit) is very strong locking-in the front end while the zip tie securing the rear end.

Thanks for the info, Good2goDD! You gave me some good ideas.

I saw someone on another site using RC turnbuckles (turned out really nice for him!). Tried that, and it didn't work (wrong size/length), so I did it this way:


LWRC004.jpg


Front end: I had to use the pliers on the multi-tool to bend another "loop" for the pin/strut to hold the other bolt in.


LWRC005.jpg


Rear end: the longer bolt just went it easily. Slight bending of the bolt, though.

LWRC006.jpg


Didn't like how the metal finish didn't match, so I used flat black paint to coat the silver-colored bolts.

LWRC007.jpg

LWRC009.jpg

Of note, I covered the buffer tube with an Exile Machine foam cover first to enlarge the overall diameter of the tube so that the free edges of the saddle wouldn't have to be wedged too close together, and the foam serves as a cushion as well.

Gromit, nice job, man. That's a rally clean and professional looking solution - adjustable and reversible also. I was unmotivated to go to the hardware store.

Thanks! Appreciate the kind words, especially coming from you (one of the few online who actually posted how to assemble/attach the saddle).

It's the Rguns.net Long RGQ Handguard (5th item from the top). Although their quality is amazing, I wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy. They're slow, impossible to contact, and outright rude to the few who have successfully reached them. I'll never do business with them again.

Awesome pix fellas. Unfortunately, I have to sell my AR pistol and would like to know which appropriate sale forum do I use, the long gun or handgun forum?

Thanks.

I really don't want to sell that setup. The SigM400 with the original 556 upper is $1299. I can get plenty of those. The Colt upper with the magwell adapter and 7 rebuilds would be $1300 but I use it on my full auto AR. The suppressor is $699 and has a $100 factory rebate.

No, it is a condor bag. It has held up really well and seems to be pretty decently made.

I believe as long as you have a mag lock you are fine with the threaded barrel on a ar pistol.
