    Thought I would post. I found myself without a delta tool, so I took two toothbrushes, wrapped a rubber band around them and got the sucker off!

    If your interested, here is the demo I did.

    Yeah there are a ton of tricks to move the delta ring and pull it off. I have seen people use a big pair of channel lock pliers to push the ring down to remove the handguard. I just spent 8 bucks on the tool and now everyone is like hey can I use that LOL.

    Or just be a man and pull it down with your hand. Some are tough at first...my lmt defender was a complete ***** I won't lie, but it loosened up a bit, and other rifles I have used are not as bad,

    Must be making them a LOT different from the last time I was around them.... Never knew there was a tool or a reason for one.

    Great job with the High Speed solution though.

    i just use my hands, but my aftermarket mi rail is alot harder to get it seated, its a real tight fit compared to the stock ones.
