CASV14 making Contact with stock
Hi all, I just installed a CASV14 rail/handguard on my M1A and it makes contact with the stock (GI Fiberglass stiffened with carbon fiber), on the right (op rod) side. I know it's an accuracy issue for a conventional handguard to contact the stock, but does that hold true for the CASV?
Unlike a traditional handguard, that you don't want touching the receiver or the stock, the CASV is bolted right to the receiver, and to the barrel in front of the receiver, and to the barrel again at the op rod guide.
Everything times up correctly and a spirit level confirms that the rail is level with the receiver. If necessary, I could always sand that side of the stock down a little, but if it isn't likely to be an issue, I'll leave well enough alone.
