Bought myself an SHS gstyle 14.5in handguard on sale for $25. Bargain i am thinking. Arrives with no barrel nut. Get on Aliexpress buy a WE and UFC barrel nuts as the threads are slightly different to see what fits for $43 and a set of rails for $22.
Barrel nuts arrive and i strip quad rail off. WE barrel nut is a little tight thread but all good.
Put new rail on and it’s 4mm lower the receiver. Fark i think. It’s a 416 rail. Go to Hawkex facebook page and theres a post from 12 weeks ago stating the hawkex 416d rails are higher and aftermarket rails don’t line up.
Thanks for making a HK416d different to every other hk416d Hawkex.
Just a heads up for anyone else with one and thinking of changing the quad rail out.
Current setup on it with an ACR mag
