Introducing the “Long” handguard for the Kel-tec RDB in OD Green. Designed specifically for the 20″ models that DO have a pistol grip, this is 3″ longer than the original RDB handguard and will extend out to the full length of those two weapons.
ORDER THIS IF YOU HAVE A 20” BARREL WITH PISTOL GRIP in GREEN.
The Cali / Canada / Hunter model is a different item as I have to modify the rear mounting area to fit the California featureless shell.
These 6061-T6 Handguards will NOT fit your Survival 16” – for that you want the -S Survival rail in our sale section. They will not currently fit over a suppressor – we will start working on a suppressor-friendly long handguard soon.
Installation is simple. We re-designed the front stay to allow the silver standoff to tap in as easily as the original Kel-Tec push pin. We then added a tensioning set-screw on the bottom of the front stay to lock the standoff in position against the stay for a rock-solid lock-up.
To install, simply removing your original plastic rail. Place the U-shaped stay PERFECTLY aligned around the gas block where the single push-pin holes are lined up. Getting this off-center and forcing the standoff will damage these parts. Using a brass or plastic or rubber mallet (NO hammers), tap the silver standoff through the u-shaped stay and the rifle’s push pin hole in the gas block until perfectly centered.
Tighten the bottom tensioning set screw – this already has yellow loctite on it. It’s a 6-32 allen head screw. When this is tight (8-12 inch pounds), remove the four 6-32 screws out of the front stay corners then slide the handguard on from front to rear, then re-insert all four screws. Tighten all of these plus the rear 4 screws on the rear posts and you’re done.
If it takes more than 5 minutes or you don’t understand it or you feel like you are forcing it STOP and email me for assistance or take it to a local gunsmith.
Thanks for your business!
