    Interesting. Glad Im not doing anything wrong. My upper is a BCM complete, I cut the delta ring and then installed the rail. I wonder if something is out of whack or the rail is out of spec? I suppose I'll leave it as long as the irons zero ok, I don't plan on putting any optics on the actual rail.

    Thanks for responding and I hope you enjoy your rifle!

  2. Interesting. My Daniel Defense Lite/RISII QUAD rails line up perfectly with the upper receiver :whistling:

    Jokes aside. I really like those Troy tubes. Thinking about getting one soon.

    Did you use the provided Troy barrel nut or the stock barrel nut?

    Pretty sure the newer ones don't come with a barrel nut, as they are designed to use a stock barrel nut. Your rail is the first generation version, which did require a proprietary barrel nut.

    I used the stock barrel nut. The new alpha rails don't come with or require a proprietary barrel nut to my knowledge.

    Didn't realize the newer ones don't use a proprietary barrel nut. The OP stated that he was having trouble as well, and bought a troy barrel nut and everything worked out fine. Might want to call up Troy and see if that could be the problem

    No need to call Troy. I had used a sub par del-ton barrel nut and it deformed when torqued properly. Well the splines at least so the rail didn't line up right. When I purchased the new nut Troy just happened to have one in stock.

    Nice build! I might have to get a Troy for my next one.
    Love that FDE!
