Review: When I got my shroud from OPSGEAR some 6-7 months ago I was completly taken by surprise - MAN IT LOOKS LIKE A KILLER! It didn't come with any instructions on installation but there is a link on the OPSGEAR website to help you out. Once the 4 set screws were in place the thing was ROCK SOLID. Of course for those of us who aren't fans of set screws taking the shroud off can be annoying and after a while the rails can grind down something awful. Recently my A-5 rails were so bad that the shroud shunted and jostled with all the screws in place! A good remedy though is to fill the ground areas of the A-5 rails with some JB Weld, sand it smooth, and re-install the shroud and it should be good as new (worked for me). The abundance of rails is great for your tactical needs, especially with the Carry Handle and any Red Dot Sight.
Conclusion: All in all an excellent product it has its problems in the long term but there are solutions. Just too bad the M107 Shroud has replaced it.
