Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

I found it interesting also Brian. I really did not know the difference between Key Mod and M Lock. I kind of like the Key Mod but do have some M Locks.
M Lock attachments are kind of a pain to put on but let me find the video showing some install tips.

Default M-LOK Mounting Hack! Magpul Hates This Trick

O.K. I am not saying the Key Mod is easier to install or better but I just found the Key Mod so much simpler. Video show just back it off a bit and tighten and your all set?
I always have to take a long screw driver and turn the damn inside nut to align properly. Key Mod for me.

Flatten an end of a wire coat-hanger and a 90 degree bend with a rounded handle would work for that.

Super good idea Brian but what the hell I just go with the Key Mod and skip all that frustration. Both are good and once either is locked in place hell they ain't going nowhere.
The best invention for sights was the Picatinny rail system. Oh my God our nice old rifles having to have a smith or if your talented do it yourself and drill for scope mounts. Pain in the ass. Nahhhh.

February 3, 1995 the Picatinny Rail came out. it. This was Mil-STD-1913, dated February 3, 1995.

The only significant difference between the Picatinny rail and the similar Weaver rail are the size and shapes of the slots, where the Picatinny rail has square-bottomed slots while Weaver rails have rounded slots.
