Default Handguard Gap

How much gap should there be between the rear hand guard and the stock on the right side just ahead of the op-rod cut out? Mine has about 3/32" gap between the stock and hand guard. Most pictures I see, the gap seems smaller. The left side is almost flush. Rifle shoots fine. Just curious.



Thanks,


Dave

One of my CMP stock sets has a wide gap handguard. I think it's a cosmetic issue and not to worry. If I remember correctly, some gap is supposed to be better than no gap at all.

Is this a USGI stock? Shoots fine so you are golden.

Thanks. Yes a USGI stock set. Like all things, something uneven gets more attention even if the function is unaffected.
