View Full Version : Handguard question

May 31, 2011, 15:10
I just bought a Penguin stock set. What kind of screw should I use for the handguards? I don't want to tear the handguards that I have apart for the screw. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

penguins came with a screw and nut...guess your's doesnt have it...

on your original handguards there should be a little C clip that holds the screw in...pop that out and your screw should come out....did this to one of mine and it worked like a charm....

Next best thing:

10 X 32, 1 1/4" in length.

I'd use a Hex socket screw, at least they're the right color. If you like, grind the head down, cut a slot and reblue.

Ok, now I have the screw out. I just have to figure out now what to do for the nut. Does the nut in the left side press out. I see that it's two pieces.

Got it. I love learning new things about different weapons. Thanks for all your help.
