Most FF handguards are sold with the barrel nut included, if it is required. YHM, Hogue, include the barrel nut required for their hanguards. Based on the website info., MI includes the barrel nut with their handguard.
So you will need a torque wrench to install the barrel nut.
You will not need to cut the delta ring, it will come off when you remove the standard barrel nut, which is best done with an armorer's tool.
