    Youíve got this piece turned (so it appears from your photo) that itís acting like an anti rotational tab rather than flush like so

    I get my rails flush with the upper receiver by mounting an A4 carry handle across the gap and helping to align them while I tighten the rail hardware up

    Hey..I now what Iím doing..Iím a gunsmif .... ..I have it right , see reply below and I do the same to align my rails..

    I tried redoing the barrel tightening , but and the gap gets no better.. would take lapping or more to get it right.. Idk

    This is what centurion replied with

    What you got is the correct current antirotation piece. It's made of steel and coated black. They added the wings a little while ago (I did not realize that the old insert was still shown on the website ) It's the same piece, just with the added wings, as they felt this was a better way to secure than to chance riding up on the actual gas tube to provide the stability. However, as you probably know, there is no actual "standard" among 7.62 parts...so you may occasionally find that some uppers may be too wide or the slope starts too early for the wings to fit. In that case, we would recommend either filing the insert to fit, or you can simply turn the insert around so the wings sit around the rail instead. Either way is totally fine.


    Even though I tried a few magnets and none of them stuck to the piece..seems made of plastic

    I have some of those, and they're plastic as well. Some were steel... I don't know what current production is.

    Could they be aluminum? Plastic seems like a strange choice but who knows

    I replied back, waiting to hear back again. Steel would be better ..I guess..

    Just seems silly to do it like this.
    The anti rotation piece/setup

    Other then that for a 762 size rail it’s nice and slim and a .750 SLR 7 fits underneath
