Old school mod- AR handguard for light.

A guy at work short on funds needed to get a light on his new work gun. GG&G rail mounted forward to cantilever the light more forward. But then the guards need re notched at the right place (shooters choice) for the gas tube. A couple nubs need removed too a little fitting.

Solid lock up. Haven't down one in many years with all the fore end options out there these days. This guy is left handed so this works great with the TLR1 and the momentary rocker activated by the thumb.
