Are you attaching this handguard to a standard threaded upper receiver?
Make sure to select "Yes" under the Handguard Barrel Nut option above (shims included). Our handguards use either the DPMS/Aero or Armalite interface and do not work with a standard barrel nut. If you are using our M5E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver, no additional pieces are needed. Purchased with a handguard, the M5 Barrel Nut is $20 ($40 when sold separately).

*Please note - This handguard is specific to the M5 .308/M5E1 platform. It is not compatible with the AR15/M4E1 platform.

Great Rail but a few minor things Review by ultragunner
Got this rail for my DPMS Sportical in .308. The quality is great but if its your first time putting a new barrel nut on it can be a little challenging with the shims and lining the gas tube up. I was somewhat under the impression that the rail would mate up with my rail on my receiver, which might of been my own fault, so now I will have to get risers to have anything on the same plane (iron sights etc.). One more tiny gripe is i got mine in FDE which doesn't quite match my magpul stock and pistol grip. Other than that this rail is fantastic and looks great. (Posted on 2/27/2017)
Doe NOT fit all Magpul M-Lok Accessories Review by Edward
I bought this with the intention of adding the Magpul M-Lok Type 2 rail covers to it. They do not fit dur the design of the handguard. I have the M5 and the M4 handguards and the rail covers do not fit either of them. I love the quality of the handguards, but I would expect Aero to make sure that if they plan on adhering to the Magpul standard, that the products are actually compatible with Magpuls products.
