This little lump of wood helps keep that rear fitting in position as it bonds to the inside of the cut down handguard shell. Position is VERY important. I suggest drawing a centerline on a sheet of paper and placing the little wood slug squarely on the centerline with a dab of white glue etc.
Some plastic food wrap over the guide will help keep the JB Weld from getting stuck to it.
Thanks for that info. I was wondreing how to align the parts so that everything fit together on the AR correctly.
