    A file is plenty, it is not like you are removing much material to fit the anti-rotation tabs on a hand guard to an upper. Dremels are great tools but can remove more than you need in a real hurry.

    I finally opened the box and see that my Mk14 is new production with no tabs, just the screws.

    There’s still tabs at the bottom where the anti rotational screws go in right? The top two tabs were gone for a long time. The bottom ones are newer which houses the anti rotational set screws. This will interfere with the upper. Please see my 4 pictures above.

    Unless they’ve recently updated the rails to even removing the bottom tabs.

    Damn. Yes, the lower ears are there. Mine is in DDC so filing is going to leave them looking ugly.

    I guess I should be putting these up on the EE and looking for new handguards

    My lower receiver arrived today, with a decent scratch on it.

    Just not my day...

    Do the Aero hand guards fit? Do they come with a barrel nut?

    I’m curious to know if the Aero Precision ATLAS R-ONE handguards fit. Does anyone have any first hand information?

    Thanks!

    I'd also love some advice on quality FDE/DDC handguards. It seems a shame to chop up good rails. This Geissele set me back a pretty penny!
