New here..

Recommended Posts

Hey guys nice site here.. glad i finally found a site for AR10's... I just bought a new Oracle that I mounted a new Nikon Monarch scope on.. I'm having a tough time finding a two piece quad rail for this thing seems like everyone is either sold out or they want over 300.00 for them anywhere I might find some a bit cheaper? My second problem is i only have 1/8  inch gap with extra tall rings between the stock plastic piece im hoping that the quads will not be any taller?  Thanks in advance for the help take care guys Ill be around thats for sure as this is all new to me..  :)

welcome mike, lots of guys have the oracle, and have replaced the hand guard, maybe they can chime in or have posted about it previously, we'll figure it out

Two-piece freefloat, or two-piece drop in replacement for the carbine handguards?  Check out Midwest Industries.  <thumbsup>

Hey Mike welcome I'm a new Oracle owner to and also want to free float my front handguard so let me know what you decide to do. I'm still not sure on everything thats all involved in doing the job since this is my first AR style rifle but I'm learning as I'm reading here. One question I have my self is the front handguard retainer does it just slip off after you take the flash hider and gas block off or is it part of the gas block ? <dontknow> I've only put 60 rounds through mine so far did the break in that DPMS recommends made for long day at the range but was fun until my scope came loose in the rings forgot to put loctite on the threads.  :-[ but all is better now and I just picked up 500 rounds of PPU ammo in 175gr match will see what Serbia considers match ammo. Lets see her don't hide her from us here is mine.

The Plastic one that comes on it comes off in two pieces.. If you slide the delta ring back it will allow the two pieces to separate and slide out.. I think i'm going to go back with a two piece quad rail instead of a free float but i will post back with what i go with.. There is a gun show here in town sunday if i don't find anything there probably going to order a two piece from  MidWest Ind. that 98Z5V recommended thanks!

The front handguard retainer is sandwiched between the gas block and a shoulder on the barrel. When you take the gas block of the retainer will slide right off.

Thanks 392 heminut thats the info I was looking for.

Well after talking to a DPMS Rep. today he told me there are no two piece quad rails that will work on my rifle because the barrel nut is bigger on the DPMS that I have to go with a one piece free float.. Anyone else run into this problem?

Call Midwest Industries anyway, and ask for Troy - see what he says.  It's a possibility, and worth the call.  <thumbsup>
