Installing the rail sections is not difficult...once you figure out how to slide those little f'n tabs to the openings inside the tube.
Actually one of these helps get into places where no fingers can reach...
Seriously, the rail itself comes off and goes back on in a snap...three screws, no jam nut or anything to worry about. Either install the rail sections before you mount it or slip it off and add the rails. No special skills or tools needed, it will fit over both the gas block and any flash hider you have installed.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
