2. How does that little front clamp/rail detach itself from the barrel? I already removed both allen screws and the little pin inside which holds the sling hook on. Obviously I can't remove the muzzle brake and prying it off doesn't seem to be an option, either.
I'd rather not have to pay my LGS to do the install so I appreciate any feedback, guys.
I just did this to put on a Magpul MOE handguard. It is very tough to do by yourself without a tool because you have to hold the delta ring down and use some force to pull the handguard off at the same time. I had my wife pull the bottom handguard piece off while I was holding the delta ring down. It came off quickly that way.
