Default Just got my first AR-15

Just got this bad boy home & I cant wait to shoot it!! Colt LE6920 Socom M4-A1. I'm having trouble sliding the (Knight Arms) Quad-rail covers into place. If anybody has some sound advice, I sure would appreciate it

It took a little muscle & patience but I got it figured out.

You may be able to find one online for a little less, but you'll have to pay an FFL's fee so it probably evens out. What it all boils down to is my local gun shop guy had this one on hand & ready to go. And its not a stripped down AR. It comes with a few bells & whistles. Took it to the range yesterday & it feeds & shoots unbelievably higher than my expectations, and dead on accurate. Its true what they say: Colt sets the standard for AR-15's. its 100% mil-spec. I'm VERY happy with this purchase. Money well spent
