    Where did you get that rectangle gas block

  2. Regie Mateo on March 11, 2023 at 2:48 am

    Hi sir what’s the length of the handguard?

  3. Two-stroke Workshop on March 11, 2023 at 2:48 am

    Dude I’ve looking everywhere for a video like this thank you

  4. IC4 on March 11, 2023 at 2:48 am

    Thats exactly how the military teaches you how to take hand guards off while your in basic training. Your hands will get used to it and it gets easier and easier as time goes on. I love the videos, keep up the outstanding job your doing.

    You really should have tighten that more

  7. Robert P on March 11, 2023 at 2:52 am

    Guess i’m buying a damn torque wrench. Shit.

  8. Eric Miller on March 11, 2023 at 2:54 am

    How’d you get it to slide on? I got one from bca and I tightened down the barrel nut but the habdguard stop where the nut starts

  9. Matt Maranan on March 11, 2023 at 2:56 am

    Saving this vid for future reference.

  10. arc on March 11, 2023 at 2:58 am

    how did you start the pin in the nee gas block? i cant get mine in at all

  11. C.L. Richie on March 11, 2023 at 2:58 am

    "Yur supposed to use a torque wrench. But we don’t have that, so we’re just gonna tighten her down and hopefully nothing bad happens." That’s me in damn near every project. My kinda guy!💯

  12. Justin on March 11, 2023 at 2:58 am

    Did this rifle function normally after the handguard install, or did it require tweaking after trying to fire it?

    Thanks 🤍

    Y’all leave him alone. Do it your way and be happy with it and let him do it his way. “Scratching the barrel nut”. Who gives a rip. That hand guard probably won’t ever come off again anyway. Are you careful with your driveshaft so you don’t scratch it? No, you’re not. Because who will ever see it lmao. Maybe that’s just the farmer in me but maybe not.

  16. Johnny on March 11, 2023 at 3:01 am

    Just ran across this video. It Would have been great if you would have used a nail as a punch… it would have pulled the whole video together. I love the fact that you figured out how to get the job done, as you get older you acquire the correct tools. Keep rockin it guy!!!

  18. Anthony D on March 11, 2023 at 3:03 am

    I have a Bear Creek Arsenal, my first AR. I’m about to change out the handguard too. Thanks for the help.

  19. Imago House on March 11, 2023 at 3:03 am

    My man did the whole thing with kitchen drawer tools. Honestly, I was skeptical about building an upper until I saw this video….now I’m fully confident I can do it. Keep it up brother!

  20. anthony14199 on March 11, 2023 at 3:04 am

    Thanks for your help. You help me out with no special tools. You were great. Keep up the good job. Again, thanks. Tony.

  21. ALEX schmalex on March 11, 2023 at 3:05 am

    Gunsmiths are cringing at this video but I think it’s AWESOME! Thanks for showing a normal human how to do this with normal human tools and experience!

  22. toofemmm1001 on March 11, 2023 at 3:06 am

    Nice man thank you you really benefit me with this information 👍👍👍

  23. Nate on March 11, 2023 at 3:07 am

    You got the job done, and you my boy are an absolute hack. That toothed slip joint pliers were making me cringe.

  24. king fiqs on March 11, 2023 at 3:08 am

    how to m4 cqb to use freeloat

  25. The Goodlife on March 11, 2023 at 3:08 am

    Great video Elliot…this gave me the courage to change mine out as well…Thanks!

  26. wv Dave on March 11, 2023 at 3:08 am

    Watching a bubba video , he literally took channel locks and vice grips , wtf

  27. UltimateManTV on March 11, 2023 at 3:10 am

    Anyone know the screws used? I need to order some

  28. 1 Free XP on March 11, 2023 at 3:13 am

    Great video only thing is you should vice the barrel not the upper because of the metal you could risk bending the aluminum but you wont hurt that barrel.

  29. Cam Hallulis on March 11, 2023 at 3:14 am

    No need for a torque wrench for 45 lbs ft lol that easy to get to with channels

  30. Ree Toaded on March 11, 2023 at 3:18 am

    Heads up there is a certain direction channel locks work best, they are like a pipe wrench

  31. washburnbilly on March 11, 2023 at 3:19 am

    Cool vid bud, I gotta get something like this so I can mount a light that I bought. But I’m also not made of money so it might just be some electrical tape in a pinch. I hope that you are prepping food, water filtration, med’s and so on.

  32. manny jimenez on March 11, 2023 at 3:20 am

    I cringe that you used some channel locks instead of a crescent wrench bro. the scratch and strip marks you must have left are making me want to be your dad and yell at you for being a dumb ass lol.

  33. Eric Hughes on March 11, 2023 at 3:21 am

    If you’ll flip them channel locks half over they’ll work a whole lot better

  34. Jose Castillo on March 11, 2023 at 3:23 am

    Can i put any upgrades on the stock hand guard or do i have to switch it put

  35. Travis Maes on March 11, 2023 at 3:26 am

    Great job man. The comments are hilarious. People mentioning ingenuity in this video makes me think some people have never picked up a set of channel locks. Im still new to this and just bought a hand guard upgrade and watched a different video before this one to learn and was sort of stressed because of all the proper tools he used. After watching this Im fully confident i can do this. Will be i vesting in the proper multitool wrench to take the delta ring off however. Thanks for the stress relief you provided by keeping it simple. Hittin the like button

  36. Sean Christison on March 11, 2023 at 3:28 am

    Yikes dude, hope it worked out

  37. Francisco Magallon on March 11, 2023 at 3:29 am

    Thank you for the vid man you made it simple and easy!🤙🏽

  38. John Leonard on March 11, 2023 at 3:29 am

    Looking at this kids (Dad’s) garage, I am guessing there is a decent Crescent wrench somewhere?? Those channel locks… Damn!!! lol

  39. Vinnie Chenzo on March 11, 2023 at 3:31 am

    Yeah…. specifications are important. 20 to 40 foot lbs is definitely way less that as tight as you can get it with channel lock in a vice unless you are a 12yo. The damage that can be caused by not using the "specialized" armors wrench to the treads will cost you way more.

    Will is shoot safely… most likely. But i don’t want to bet my life on it for 60 bucks in tools.

    Keep after kid. Just maybe add more weight to the value of your life vs paper money.

  40. Nick Barone on March 11, 2023 at 3:31 am

    Idk how the hell you got that barrel nut without the tool, I can’t get it off man

  41. Arcana on March 11, 2023 at 3:32 am

    Someone teach this boy how to use a pair of channel locks.

  42. wOptimusw on March 11, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Nice job!

  43. Trill SpazzN on March 11, 2023 at 3:35 am

    Yo bro what size is gas block?

  44. Big Dev on March 11, 2023 at 3:35 am

    What size Allen wrench did you use because I need one to take my barrel cover off

  45. Galactus Devourer of Worlds on March 11, 2023 at 3:36 am

    I love how you did it without all the specialized tools! Pretty sure this is one of the best and most helpful videos out there for a handguard install. Great work!

  46. Hekker on March 11, 2023 at 3:37 am

    my right ear loved this vid

  47. metalfenderguybradwalker on March 11, 2023 at 3:38 am

    This kid isn’t poor? Dude I laid $14 at bass pro for a real uni wrench for the AR and it was $15. I’ll gladly send you a $15 money or a wrench. Your gonna have that barrel fly off or everything is gonna "splode" in your face dude. You must have no idea at all howuch pressure is in a 556/223

  48. ohead rider on March 11, 2023 at 3:39 am

    Where did you buy the hand guard

  49. 1993 Cherokee on March 11, 2023 at 3:40 am

    I bet you get a set of channel locks for Xmas,,,,,,,,,

  50. Cooper Daniel on March 11, 2023 at 3:47 am

    Would this be the same for the smith and wesson m&p ii?
