ID this free float tube?


Recommended Posts

I just picked up a AR rifle length FF tube off eBay for a good price.

It's aluminum and seems to be well made with lightening slots made into the end of the tube. It's a two piece set, with no markings.

Two questions:

1. Can anyone tell me who makes it?

2. My JP tube has an rubber O ring that goes on the nut. This one doesn't. Do I need an O ring?

Thanks (ignore the carbine handguards in the pic).

Yes, the JP handguard O-Ring is there to allow it to be indexed. It also requires a little (blue) LocTite to keep it in position, otherwise your handguard mounted sight might not hold zero for the long haul.
