Default Free float help in the east bay

I bought a free float handguard and don't have the tools to install it. I'm looking for someone who can loan me the tools or help me install my new handguard. I can remove the gas block myself. But don't have the wrench or a vice block. I live out in Antioch. If you live near by I'd buy you lunch if you can help. Thanks in advance.

I don't have hundreds of dollars to spend on my build, so I opted to try this one out. Seems like a decent piece for the price based on the reviews. At least this one is made in the USA. I'm still waiting for it to arrive. I just wanted to put the feelers out there so I can get something set up for when it arrives. Ill be sure to post up some pictures.

Chris of "trinity gunsmithing"
(calguns "a-Chris-47") helped me out a lot today. Here is a before and after pic.

I really love how it turned out. And I love the UTG Pro free float handguard. It is very high quality. And great for the price.

And If you live in the east bay or anywhere in the Bay Area I highly recommend Chris for any gunsmithing needs. He is awesome! Thanks Chris!!

There are 6 studs that hold it in place. No twist. You must tighten screws very securely and in a pattern.
