I would have loved to be able to buy the sturmwerkz daewoo rail but unfortunatly, right now i cant. So i did the next best thing and with very little fitting i installed the tuff force quad rail on my woo. I could very easily shorten it up in the future and i may. Here she is right now

Looks great to me...as long as it works and you are happy with it...don't worry about getting the stormwerkz set up. Love to see some side by side pics with a FAL handguard to see the work you did.

did you have to dremel a lot in the collar area? my utg rail required a lot of modding. did you drill and tap a new hole to utilize the same lug as the oem handguards?

i did not drimmel 1 thing. i chopped off about 1/32 off of the collar, litterely about the width of a hacksaw blade x2 and ran a mini square file around the center section where it had like 6 small raised bumps that wedge into the collar i guess. i shortened the small amount so my cross screw would just sit in the grove on the barrel where my sling swivel was. i am 100% sure that if i had 30 mins with a band saw that i could shorten it to the length of the origional handguards. but i will have to see if the locking piece will line up with the hole for the handguard screw. if not i may just cut off a 5 or 6 inch section of the bottom and side rails at the rear and just have a round hand hold spot.

After looking at how it is made i believe you could cut off the same length of the daewoo handguards and mill off enough of the rails to have a new lock ring to go into recessed area on the reciever and just use the factory mounting hole.

Well update to my fal quad rail mod. I wanted to shorten the quad rail to use the factory hand guard mounting block


So I just cut down the oal to be the same as the factory part. Then I trimmed the rails down just enough to allow a good fit. It really was pretty easy. Here are some pics to show the shape of the quadrail

I left some length on the bottom portion of the picitini rail and used a screw to secure it with the screw that holds the barrel bushing in place.

And at the front end where the cross screw goes thru the lug I used 1 square nut on each side to take up the slack and to keep the hand guard from moving.

i have a laser and a flashlight and or a folding handle as well. i just wanted to show the shortened rail with nothing much on it. the adaptability is part of the draw of these modular weapons accessories if you ask me. i can hang some things on the rails and pop them right off depending on the environment/ lighting and what i plan on doing with the rifle that day.

$79'ish bucks on amazon. It really was super easy to cut the tuff force rail down, it looks a lot easier than the nc star rail would be. I may buy another one so I can a dissipator woo and a set of shorties too lol.

Nice job! 79 bucks is very inexpensive for a set of handguards.

Got mine on Gunbroker for $75+ shipping. Seems about right for the quality these days.
