Hey all, I saw the AlfArms railed gas tube on one of V for Vandetta's videos on YouTube and thought it would be a good mounting option for my Vortex Razor red dot to get it a little lower and further forward. 4 Range has been sold out for some time and just got them back so I ordered one.

I tried to install it and had zero luck. I watched the install on the aforementioned video but even with the adjuster sleeve all the way in, I can't get the locking lever closed. I know the locking lever drives the tube forward a little, but on mine, the flat on the tube that engages the hand guard retainer drives it so far forward, the hand guard retainer is just about to the point of not capturing the front of the hand guard any longer. Compared to the slight movement on the video, mine is being pushed forward way too much. The only way to get the lever closed was to remove the lock nut and back off the adjuster further, but then it won't even really engage in the gas block like it's supposed to, so filing down the lock nut won't really work. The OEM gas tube, handuard, and retainer fit perfectly, so it seems the shotgun parts are all where they should be. I did also notice on the aluminum body, where the flat that engages the hand guard retainer has threads poking through for the where the adjuster sleeve threads in, so I'm thinking maybe the entire piece was mis-machined.

I'm at a loss, I tried a bunch of different methods and angles, no luck. If V or anyone else that has one reads this and has any ideas, please let me know. If not, I'll probably contact 4 Range about a return or exchange.

Having actually read the post now I believe you are correct in saying it may be a manufacturing defect.

There are variations between guns, the one I noted was between 2 different Veprs the tube itself needed trimmed on the sides where it drops in below the gas tube lever, you can see where it’s shiny in my video. Before I trimmed it, I tested it on 2 guns, and one it dropped right in.

The problem you described is not adding up. I would saw go ahead and ask for an exchange. Tell Max I sent you.
