    I currently have a yhm diamond series handguard, and I have ordered a Troy alpha rail to replace it. Do I need a standard barrel nut to install the alpha.

    Thanks

    Kwaynebb,

    Yes! you do need the standard barrel nut! Be sure to re-torque the barrel nut to a minimum of 35 Ft Lbs when installing it.
    In all honesty your YHM Quadrail is much more sturdier! Only a thought!

    I like Troy rails but I'm a big fan of the YHM Diamond rails.
