You will need to take the gas block off, then remove the free floating handguard

You may need to remove the muzzle brake as well to get the gas block off.

Here's a Link to an article I just finished, detailing how to remove your stock handguard. It resides in the Hoot's Information Depository sub-forum.

Post any questions here. I'll do what I can to help, as will others.
