Yours is on correctly, not backwards. So you get 2 stars - one for remembering and one for getting it right. But only if it was your first attempt.

Even a heavy handed halfwit newb like me, who's never been in the ring, can see the problem there.

If you never did it, then you will if you roll your own.

This is why I put the handguard ring on way ahead of time, check it three times cuz my brain is mush, and wire the damned thing to the gas block. Knock on wood, I've only gone so far as to have the barrel in hand when I noticed the ring was backwards.

Whole story over on Arfcom.

Owner didn’t realize the ring was on backwards.

Actually busted out the Dremel to modify the handguards.

Gotta be worth som WECSOG points.

The owner went to REPLACE the handguards that were on it and the new ones wouldn't fit.

He posted the pics asking why and folks noticed the ring was on backwards and the old guards had been cut at the back end to work with the flipped ring.

No WECSOG points awarded without injury...it's the law.

I was about to take a picture of a bipod on backwards, and you know what a struggle those dum things are.
