Description + Features
Factory Front Sight Needs Removed For Install, Removing The Factory Front Sight Almost Certainly Requires Destroying It (see installation instructions tab for details).
Now compatable with new and old style lock nuts on Sub2000 rifles.

This forend features many of the same design qualities that our SU forends and PLR forends have. The main feature of this design, however, is that it indexes to repeatable positive positions in 90 degree increments to allow you to keep your optic mounted, zeroed, and still be able to fold the gun. This is accomplished by using the same concept as a picatinny rail but with four 45 degree tangs interfacing with a mating negative in the face of the forend mounting coupler. This provides positive positioning in the X,Y Plane for repeatability. This design also leaves very little room for contaminates to enter the interface.
Changes made since first run include new slot cutouts for more rail options (basically any rail that is 19 slot or under and uses 10-24 screws in bolt hole patterns divisible by .394) and cooling slots machined to accept Ergo LowPro Rail Covers when a rail is not present in that location. Cut rail covers into four rib sections for use. Magpul polymer rails can be used along with their supplied hardware except in the most forward location or rearward location in which case using one of our rail grommets would solve this but rail will protrude slightly out the front. Ours and the Magpul rails will co-witness with either the factory sights or our R7 front sight when using a mount that co-witnesses with AR15 iron sights when mounted on a AR15 A3 flattop reciever that has a 1/2 inch riser. In our example pic mount used was the ARMS22 M68 Aimpoint mount without spacer. Below are pics showing new rail slot cutouts, Ergo Lowpro rail covers, and a pic of the cowitnessing.








To index forend: Loosen knurled nut until it contacts forend (approx 1/10 inch), index forend to desired position, and retighten knurled nut. No tools needed.

Gun Interface-Forend coupler clamps to barrel and also engages back plate on S2K for positioning. Does not allow barrel to unscrew when force is applied to forend.

100% Solid and Repeatable April 5, 2014
Reviewer: Samuel Grove from Spokane Valley, WA United States  
Once mounted and LocTite down I was hammering the orange 2" center on the 100 yard target. I used 155 gr Underwood Ammo and zero at 25 yards which happens to be the same zero at 100 yards. I opened/closed spun the forend between shots changed from 2-7 power on the NcStar scout scope and each time drilled orange sticker at 25 and 100 yards.

Great Product March 28, 2014
Reviewer: Ralph Green from Hagerman, NM United States  
Really Superior manufacturing.
This turned a fun gun to shoot into a really nice, versatile system.
The part fit like a glove, easy to follow instructions.
Worth the money, especially if you've looked at the Kel-Tec alternative, which side by side, really makes Kel-Tec look bad.
Added two rails, rail covers and a few other parts.
Now it's a REALLY fun gun to shoot and is easier on the eyes :-)

Awesome product December 26, 2013
Reviewer: Randy Stinson from Delta, UT United States  
Red Lion's products are all fantastic well built and function better than expected, but their customer service is even better than their products. I want to find reasons to buy more things from them.
