Instructions for Mounting the carbon fiber handguard, any length

Remove the small screws on the outside of the back end. The number varies from 4 to 6 depending on the length.

Slip the rear mounting assemble out of the carbon fiber tube.

Remove the 4 screws holding down the U-shaped plate.

Slip the GI barrel nut into the body of the rear mounting assembly, the gear shaped end will be right under where the U plate was mounted

Screw the barrel nut onto the upper receiver, tighten down to proper torque spec and align a notch in the barrel nut with the gas tube hole in the upper receiver.

Turn the body of the rear mounting assembly so that the gas tube hole is matching the hole and the barrel nut. You will be sliding the gas tube through all three holes, so they must line up.

Put the U plate back onto the rear mounting assembly, with the open end towards the top. Start each screw a couple of threads until all four are in place.

Tighten the screws, alternating back and forth, a turn or so on each at a time. As these screws continue to be tightened, this will cause the rear mounting assemble to draw into the barrel nut. There is a small tab on the very bottom of the rear mounting assembly that will draw into the bottom of the barrel nut in the notch that will be at the bottom center. There will be a little resistance as it tightens, this is normal, and is from the tab being drawn into the notch of the barrel nut. That tightness helps to keep it solid and not move when finished.

Alternating the tightening on the screws, go until the U plate is down against the rear mounting assembly flush. Make each screw tight to finish.

Mount your gas tube and gas block in place and tighten the mounting screws on the bottom of the gas block.

Slide the carbon rail onto the now mounted rear mounting assembly

Replace the outer screws and tighten.

Mr.
If you're looking for a lightweight forearm, this is it. Rails and end cap are detachable and you're sitting at around 4 1/2oz IIRC! Around 9oz with all the rails attached. The price has dropped since I bought it, even better value!

Great Handguard!
I'm not a key mod guy so the slotted version of this hand guard caught my eye. I installed two of them on a couple of SBR uppers; they work and look great! I found the easy to install, and since I did not need the extra rail sections for these two uppers I removed them and saved a bunch of weight. If you need the rails, the ones that are supplied seem to work fine. If you simply want a very reasonably priced carbon fiber hand guard, ditch the rails and be amazed at how light this hand guard can be. The finish is well done. The end cap is a nice touch if you like that kind of thing. I am running it bare so it can cover part of my suppressor and offset some of the weight for a lightweight hog hunting carbine. I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

A+
I now have two of these. You can almost cut half of the weight by removing the rails and not running the front cap. Very tight fitting and extremely low deflection(you have to put some real muscle into it and look for deflection as it is not a "feelable " amount. I think mine weighs 4oz after removing the rails I didn't want. That is complete with the mount and one lower rail for a bipod or light. I have another brand(3x as much) and this has a much better mount hardware, 5 screws instead of 3. I would suggest this to anyone who wants a quality piece at pos prices.

Hell of a deal
First off trying to find a decent priced 9" rail is tough in itself. Now add a lightweight carbon fiber one for under $50. Hell yeah! Like others have said to shed the weight ditch the extra rails and end cap. It's just extra mass hanging out there.
