Pics of your set-up and attempted set-up would be helpful.

Default Look at mine

Does your grip have a button to hold in while you simply slide it on like this see link below

Hummm, doesn't fit as in how? If you mean that the rail won't slide into the grip - Is this one of those that you have to pull the battery compartment out FIRST because the ridge on the top of it is what locks the grip to the rail????

Or do you mean the bolts that came with the picatinny rail need to be longer to go thru the heat shield on the forearm. ????? If its a problem with mounting the rail to the forearm, there is a lot of good info in the reviews of this product on amazon.

Sorry, ??????????, Ken

PS - Welcome to the forum, you are in Good Hands!

Probably needs to change the forearm because the rails won't bolt up

The add-on rail will bolt up to your handguard, correct?

Will the grip slide onto the add-on rail?

OK, now I get it! Sounds like the easy way would be to buy a new handguard with the rail already on it.

Or you might have to modify the handguard you have now to use the rail you just bought.

Click on the Amazon link in your reply above. Then click on the product reviews for the rail. Sounds like other folks have had the same problem you are having.

The one guy talks about grinding the handguard flat in the area where the rail needs to go, drilling new holes, using longer bolts with nuts to attach the rail. If you have the tools, it doesn't sound like much of a deal.

Good luck! Ken
